  1. I’m so honored that you would think of me, Jenny! I’m going to drive over right now and knock on your window to wake you up and ask if there are any left-overs. That looks so scrumptious! (Love the garnishes, too.) Btw, that is the longest list of ingredients ever! You go. Tell me, thought, was it worth the labor? I’m drooling! -A

  2. Looks delicious – you’ll have to ship me some! I’m loving your presentations of the food now. Very nice touches : ) way to go!
