During my recent hospital vacation...at 2 am, my nurse came into my room with meds for me.
I was awake and we got to talking
about recipes.. and JAP.
I told her I was collecting recipes,and the next day she gave me six wonderful ones.
Thank you Tammy..I am sure my jap friends will love this one.
I have changed her recipe, a little, to using 33% less salt and 100% fat free chicken broth!
Maybe now I can enjoy it on my
Heart Healthy,low salt diet! Ha!
Just dreaming......and lol.
