I am wrapping up my cook book, and much like a lot of things in my life this book as well as this recipe in particular happened out of pure accident.
This particular recipe was created out of necessity as I remember clearly that I quite literally had about $5.00 which I had procured in tips waiting tables for the night, working the graveyard shift at a 24 hour cafe.
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and friends have.
