Okay, I’m slacking today. I need to get ready for Magna cum Murder this weekend. I’ll try to blog from Muncie, but they keep us pretty busy at Magna–in a good way–so I may not be able to. Besides, somebody talked me into joining Facebook and it’s a full-time job figuring out what all the plants and eggs and things are all about.

Here’s a recipe I’m giving out through World Wide Recipes today, special and free just for you, you wonder three people who ever read this blog. Big squishy hugs!

This recipe came from my precious late mother-in-law, one of the world’s best cooks.
