Grandma Tucker's Scalloped Potatoes

My dear friend Anna and I grew up together.  Her Grandfather and mine were best friends.  My grandparents lived in the Parsonage on one side of the church parking lot, and hers lived on the other side of it.  We used to sell lemonade out of her tree house there it was so fun!
One day I was fortunate to eat a meal with Anna and her Grandparents.  Grandma Tucker served her amazing Scalloped Potatoes. I can't recall how old I was but all I remember was this oval aluminum pot that was full of delicious yummy-ness. Well, when Anna went back home to East Texas this Christmas she seen her Grandma she asked her for the recipe! Funny thing about this "recipe" - was all she wrote down was:
1 Can of evaporated milk
Salt & Pepper

Gotta love our sweet grandma's  - they don't tell you how many potatoes, how much butter, they don't tell you what temperature they just do their thing and it turns out delicious every single time!
So we called her - "Grandma, what temp did you cook it at?"
Her sweet response  "Now, Anna, you cook nearly EVERYTHING at 350!" 

So,,, here is how we recreated them - very easy, and simple
8 or so potatoes
1 Stick of Butter
1 can of evaporated milk

 Layer peeled thinly sliced potatoes with pats of butter. Salt and Pepper each layer.
Pour the can of evaporated milk over the top.  Cover and Bake for about an hour @350.
