    Marney's Note:

    My little brother was quite a picky eater when he was growing up and gave my mom trouble on most meals. I started making this in high school and my mom and I were both suprised when he ended up having 4 bowls in one sitting. We actually ended up having to supplement dinner that night with leftovers because he ate most of the pot. I know this looks like a lot of ingredients, but it does go together rather easily.
