  1. Fun to look at the recipes. I was in medical school then (At Stanford not UCSD) but all the recipes look exactly like the things we made then. I’d like to see Beef Strogonoff. Sally

  2. Sally, take a look at the post again– we’ve updated it to include Beef Stroganoff. If you make the recipe be sure to let us know how it turns out!
