    RFB and Ascherer - Nakabi lives in another state now. I'm not sure you want to drive that far to deliver the meals. :-)

    Can't wait to hear the good news!

    Nakabi, How exciting. Praying for a short labor; a happy, healthy baby and Momma. I am grinning ear to ear I am so tickled. I needed some good news today and you delivered (so to speak). Keep us posted when you can. Make sure to let us know what coupons we need to start collecting for you. Let me know if I can bring dinner one night. You rock it Sweet Lady!!!!

    jdouglas- yes, capers are a good treat!!! And with the recipe, the fontina sounds great. Maybe even some brie? Pretty much any cheese would work well, just make sure to toothpick it tight so it won't run out :-)

    Nakabi- how exciting, sending lots of hugs and well wishes your way. If you need anything, feel free to e-mail... would love to bring you some non-hospital food!

    LOL nakabi, I got your VM earlier today!! Thanks for the b-day song :) Good luck and keep me posted, you and ESPN are in my thoughts and prayers YAY NEW BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Raesmom, sadly, the potato cakes won't work in the oven. :(

    However, you have an open invitation for you and Rae to come over any time for a frying lesson if you can handle the antics of the naughty twins. Seriously!

    Nakabi, I thought today was the day! Sending you best wishes and hugs. You can probably count having Thai food. ;)

    Thanks, RFB. HT had a jar of pretty nice looking capers yesterday at a good price that I treated myself to with Chicken Piccata in mind. I may be trying a slightly altered version of your Chicken Sophie this week as I have asparagus, prosciutto, and chicken in the house. I'm not a fan of goat cheese, but thought I might sub something else for it. Do you have a suggestion? I was considering Italian fontina.
