    SIMPLE, DELIDIOUS, GREAT FOR ANYTIME OF YEAR!!

    I've been cooking since I was in grade school, I've probably made something similar over the years, I'm 58 now. This recipe is well adapted to life's frantic pace. I'm one for trying new things, I also do alot of changing recipes so that they don't get boring, this one, you can't be bored!!
