  1. This meal was great, I would have had more, but all of this great cooking that Candace is doing is making me fat, and not just fatish. Basketball is not helping much, and I always find myself wanting more of this tasty food. Thanks Candace for all your wonderful meals, I sure love them, and you and appreciate all you do for me and our family.
