I really didn't think my family would like this, but this got the ultimate thumbs up in that there is nothing left over for lunch tomorrow. I even doubled the recipe!! I followed the directions exactly (which is weird because I always deviate on recipes), and it was SO good!<br/><br/>This is going into my "more than a few times a year" pile!
