I was looking at this recipe and on the spur of the moment decided that's what I wanted for dinner tonight. I cut the recipe in half thinking there would be enough for my DDs if they wanted some too, but they weren't interested...I ate a plate of them and just couldn't resist...I had to go back and finish them off...yum yum! Glad I don't do that every day! Thanks for sharing chia!!!
