    LAURIE's Note:

    When my kids were little I used to always try to make something "out of the ordinary" to keep them on their toes. I have no idea where this "brain child" came from but it was always fun to do and to eat. I couldnt post the original recipe the way it is written so the (CAPITALIZED INGREDIENTS) are the original.
