This was the cry from the wonderful Lisa and Ivonne, and so how could I not hearken to their call? They had planned a wonderful outdoor feast and forgotten the food! With the call for help put out to the blogging world, I began to eagerly flip through my cookbooks.
I'm looking for a nice, simple recipe that would incorporate some fresh flavours as well as being easy to make. After searching for awhile, I stumbled across a recipe I’d written in one of my notebooks (no idea where from!) that looked like a good starting point!
