      You are right! I did melt into my seat. Dh nattering beside me telling me to stop eating the potatoes and to eat my ham. I felt like I was a 4 yo:) He was probably right though as I only made it through one small piece of ham and a bit of salad. These were just toooooo good! I scaled it back for the two of us but another time I'd make more. This little piggy ate the lot. Thanks for a winner of a recipe. Made for PAC Spring/09
