Because our schedules don't match up very well, I've started going home to have a homemade lunch with my husband. One day I walked in and it smelled HEAVENLY. I floated over to the pan and started picking bits out to test. "You don't need to do that, it'll be on the table in just a couple of minutes!" he says. "Yes I DO have to do this, right NOW. It smells GOOD". He chuckled then made me go set the table. It tasted just as good as it smelled! It's a Johnsonville recipe via Simple & Delicious magazine, modified by my husband.
