    lazyme's Note:

    I've had this recipe for probably 20 years. We always let the kids pick dinner for their birthdays and all 5 of them pick this every year. I got this recipe out of one of James Beard's cookbooks and it is fantastic. Time does not reflect freezing time for the butter.

      This was exceptional and DH loved it! Served it with Recipe Seasoned Long Grain & Wild Rice Mix- Uncle Ben's Style and they went very well together! Made in support of LazyMe in this difficult time for her. Jelly
