Posted on: June 23, 2011

I’ll admit, I didn’t really cook much today.  We were out all day – and I had packed our lunch, so I was just spending some time on the computer looking up recipes to try.  This one was just posted today on OneGreenPlanet.org.  I must admit – it caught my eye and any ingredients I need for this one will be added to my grocery list this week!
