I served it with sour cream shredded cheeses and corn muffins on the side. It was very filling. Sam ate a couple bites. I was expecting him to eat none. So we'll says its a keeper.
In other news, I finished a hat for my husby. It took two tries, but now its perfect. I think it's my turn. And perhaps the baby would like one two.
