Personal Notes:
I can't remember the reason I decided to "get creative" one May 16th in Idaho Falls, but here is the one and only "original Jean's creation." It turned out quite good -- at least we ate it all that day. I don't know if I ever made it again or not, but hey, I've saved the recipe all these years. It seems appropriate to share it with all of you on this occasion. Happy Birthday Gayle!
