There are some nights when I throw a few things in a pan, stir it together, put it in the oven and hope it comes out tasting good. This recipe came from one of those nights – which means it tasted pretty darn good. It’s not the sort of cooking that we do all the time around here but I’m sure this will make an appearance on the table again someday. In fact, the middlest liked it so much that it might just appear for her birthday next week.
