We had two friends stop by the other night and I thought this would be easy to make is a short notice. Not shy about trying out a new recipe with these friends. They wouldn't hold back if they didn't think it was good.Well the dish went over big. She wanted the recipe so we sat down together and I explained to her how I made this dish. Any one that knows me; knows how I use a little of this and a little of that. LOL Since she took the time to write it down I made a copy and put it in my recipe box. To save time you can use sliced turkey. Oh! how I love to cook. Enjoy.
