While I am taking a week off for Easter I thought I would post some "retro" posts of mine. Hope you have a wonderful Easter!!

I usually post one of my hubbys recipe on Tuesday but he insisted that I post this one ASAP! I have never had it or made it but he insists that its easy and delicious. He said the guys at the firehouse devour it.... enjoy!
