Ok! Ok I know I haven’t been blogging much lately! And I said I was going to cook mini food and this recipe is not mini at all. Unfortunately a blogger’s life is not unlike yours. Sometimes life is a little overwhelming and other times everything seems under control and blogging time is easy to find. Enough of the excuses though and on with this recipe.
This is a recipe that I had the pleasure of eating when I was in Griffith. Dot, my hostess was kind enough to tell me how to make it.
It was Saturday night and yes, even the everydaycook gets tired of cooking. The teenager was going out and had friends getting ready at our place. I thought if I put something out for dinner they will have something before they go, even though they have told me they weren’t hungry.
Of course, the kids loved it.
