Sorry to be late with this one. Trying to do recipes on Fridays . . . oh well, here ya go!

Wow! That IS a mouthfull!!!! Got the idea for this recipe at the Chiropractor’s office, while perusing Good Housekeeping, which I otherwise wouldn’t admit I was reading . . . I adapted it and of course, made it much better.
