“From the Sun Sentinel. Reggie and Cindy own a farm and this is what the recipe says: This is country cooking at its best featuring local ingredients simply served. I like to offer this dish at room temperature. Cindy occasionally puts chopped black olives in the pie. 2 hours "marination" required before baking or you can marinate overnight.”
