This has become a joke between my brother and I. I made this for him and he gave me such a bad time about feeding him fish. Turns out he loved it, just giving baby sis a bad time. So when I made him a scrapbook, I made a whole page with this recipe on it. He still loves it. hope you will too. good any time of year.
