“I don't remember how this concoction came about but it has ALWAYS been a hit whenever I take it anywhere or serve it here or at home for a party. I have putting it together to a science even down to the type of plate product, (Hefty Serve N Store Everyday Large Plates because they "ZIP" up when one plate is inverted onto the other and they stack well) I use these because it makes for easy transportation and storage in the refrigerator also. It is so crazy easy to put together and it always gets everyone asking how you made it. I feign exhaustion *back of hand to forehead* and tell them.........”
