“This was created on one of those nights when I wasn't awfully hungry, but had to cook dinner anyway. Since I was pretty unmotivated to start with, I was very surprised that this came out as well as it did. I tend to cook by sight and taste so these measurements are my best guesstimates. See what you think!”
