This sounds delicious, and with a relatively few ingredients. Great combo! Thanks for the recipe; I see this coming soon to a table near me.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
