Made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious! I made it almost as instructed. The exceptions being that I didn't have rosemary, fresh or dried, so I used Italian seasoning instead. Oh, and I added some fresh minced garlic. Had to bake an additional 5-7 minutes also. We loved it! Very quick and easy to prepare.

Very busy nanny/au pair, working for a very rich and snooty family, in a very large home, in a very snooty village. Just in case my employer comes here, please don't ask where I am from, or I'll be sacked like the last nanny was. ;-) I take care of 4 gorgeous, and darling kids. 3 girls and a boy. The boy is the youngest (and my favorite). They are great children, very, very active. (Hyper) I love to cook. I guess that's a given, why else would I be here. Part of my job is also to prepare meals for the family. The more they like my food, the longer I get to stay. (just a little joke) On my day off, I usually go out to the cinema or some dance clubs with the other au pairs in this town. That's about it I think.
