I am glad you are joining us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday, this week. I co- host with my sister, Lana. Please be polite and follow the rules of a blog carnival, mentioning TMTT and linking back to this post from your blog post. Thanks.
I have posted a similar version of this recipe in the past. It is so simple. I made it for my parents, last week, while staying at their house. We had been busy all day with Lana and the new baby. Suddenly it was going to be dinner time with no plans. I was so glad mom had all the ingredients, making it super easy to whip up, alloying us to enjoy a great dinner. (I forgot to take a quick picture of the dish. Sorry.)

My daughter and I arrived home on Saturday morning, after our 22 hour train ride. We loved our train adventure and would consider making that trip, via train, again. Grace loved it. We are glad to be home. Grace’s 3rd birthday is today. We celebrated, yesterday, taking her to the zoo and Cheesecake Factory for dinner and desert. She had a big day. So, today has been a subdued birthday. All the travel and celebrating hit her hard. She lounged around, watching a a movie, playing, and took a 3 1/2 hour nap. Sounds like an ideals birthday to me!
We are so blessed to have our Gracie. We thank God for the gift of her.
