Dear Editor,

The article on 'Buzz Buttered Steaks' brought back several memories to me. When I was growing up my father worked for a company called C.A. Robrecht Co. located in Parkersburg. They were a wholesaler of food products. They had routs that traveled through Spencer, Grantsville, Glenville and many other cities around Parkersburg. They were one of the first frozen food distributors in the state.

They started with a small ice cream freezer and expanded to a freezer that could hold many semi truck loads of products. I remember when they started carrying 'Buzz Buttered Steaks' and how they were so popular. No one had ever seen anything like that before.

They were an instant hit at our house for many years. Neighborhood kids would show up at lunch time hoping my mother would fix some for lunch, which she would usually do to the delight of all. Then 'pot pies' came along. My mother thought they were 'the cats pajamas'.

We ate pot pies until they were coming out our ears. To this day I can not look at a pot pie without cringing.
