Comments: Marion is a woman who came to me as a volunteer when I first started doing shows in Chicago. I have learned a lot from her. One of the most beautiful things she taught me is that when you are lonely you can cook up a dish for someone who is ill or more lonely than you. Thus Marion's Skokie Casserole.
