That actually sounds really good, but I know my DH would not go for it.

Came on to say the same thing Lanita and Dawn said! How funny! Maybe this will be something to make myself one day? Maybe our DHs can try something new? Anyway, ditto on the nummy. Did your kids eat it too?

Jennifer said...

Yes! My kids and husband both ate it... I do have to say that it wasn't his favorite, but he generally eats anything, which of is great for the experimenting cook!

I rarely comment (I found your blog through Beulah's) but I am so thankful you posted this recipe. It's going straight to the dinner table this week!
(apparently, I'm very lucky. My DH will try anything, but this is one he'll definitely like.)
