Remember when it took all day to do the family laundry with the old wringer washer and clothes lines?  I can even remember watching my grandmother washing clothes in the big old black pots over a fire in her backyard.  There was little time left for cooking, thus washday dinners.  This one is made with potatoes and smoked sausage.

1 T. butter
1 medium onion, sliced
2 to 3 large potatoes, sliced
2 T. flour
1 can tomato juice, or V8 juice
1 pkg smoked sausage, sliced
salt to taste
1 cup shredded cheese

In a large casserole pan, melt butter.  Line bottom of pan with thick layer of onions.  Add generous layer of potatoes, sift flour over potatoes.  Pour can of tomato juice over top.  Cover with thinly sliced sausages.  Add water to cover.  Add salt to taste.  Bake slowly for 3 hours.  If sausages begin to brown too much, turn them over.  When done (potatoes are tender and casserole is bubbly), sprinkle with the cheese and bake 10 more minutes.
