This looks yummy. I've been enjoying this blog. You've enspired me. If you can feed your crew for $400, than I certainly should be able to feed mine for much less!

OK I know this post is over a year old but I just tried this (as in I'm sitting in front of an empty bowl right now) and it was quite delicious. The kids loved it too and we have leftovers! Thank you!
