Nummy is the word we use too, for something that we just can't wait to get into our tummy! We also use it to mean comfort food. The cat recognizes it too so I have to be careful and spell it sometimes.

Hey Wendy... It's great to know I'm not the only one that uses the word"Nummy" I guess I perfer it to Yummy cause it is easier to say and convey's so much more meaning! Can't wait to try this recipe as well since it has a Nummy rating.
