“One of my uncles and aunts was here for what is likely to be his last visit (he has cancer and is not doing well), so I wanted to prepare a really nice dinner. The original recipe was for 4, but I modified slightly, and doubled to serve 8, serving as the first course. It originated in one of my diabetic cookbooks (uncle and aunt are both diabetic), but was a major hit with the non-diabetics as well as the diabetics. Everyone was disappointed there was none left (for thirds).”
