This is a recipe that I’ve been meaning to try out for a very long time. I’ve heard so many rave reviews about it from friends… and I still have yet to make it. Tonight that’s all going to change. It’s on the official dinner menu, and I’ll be popping into the grocery store this afternoon to pick up all the additional ingredients. Mmm… Dinner can’t come fast enough!
