BonniE !


This is one of the meals that I have made quite often over the years when I have company, because it seems to please everyone. It looks fancy, and so your company will think you worked for hours on the meal, but it is really a very simple and delicious dish to make with ingredients that you usually have on hand.

Photos are my own. Enjoy!
