I was just going to cook it up with assorted seasonings, nothing special.
BUT...we needed some carb to go with it.
This recipe came from an old Tastefully Simple cookbook I had, and I adapted it as I didn't have all the required seasonings. (some you can't even get anymore)
Maybe I will try it again, and fudge around with the seasonings some.
We were not in love with this. We all ate it, but nobody wanted to save the leftovers.
Once again, I am just suggesting that everyone has different tastes. Try it, it might be a new fave in your house!
