“A friend gave me this recipe for a meeting we're planning. She says it is wonderful. It is originally from the November 2009 issue of Southern Living in an article by Marion McGahey about dishes you "mix 30 minutes the night before for a stress-free meal the next day." I look forward to trying it!”
