That does sound good. I had to laugh because where I grew up (Wyoming) Chop Suey was something you ate at the Chinese restaurant. I'm not really sure what it was as I haven't heard the term since I was a kid.
This is the first time I'm posting a recipe; I hope I'm doing it right! Tonight I adapted a GREAT recipe of my mother in law's; a long standing tried and true family favorite of my husband. It came it out great! I hope you'll check it out and if you try it, please post comments on SparkRecipes so I can get your input (positive or negative)
