    Jdouglas... I'm drooling over your menu!

    Observant- I do use biscuits on top. I've made it many ways but that's the quickest way so that's the route I'll take this time.

    Faye, you had me a corn muffins. Back in the day, when I lived where there is a deli on every corner and before Starbucks existed, I would stop at the deli on the way to work for my morning coffee and a buttered, grilled (sweet) corn muffin. Oh my. I can still remember how good they smelled as they were grilling.

    Everyone's menus sound good!

    Tonight we are having beef stew, with a pound of mushrooms in it, over noodles or mashed potatoes. ;)
