I have joined a card group - it is a group of six gals from church.  Now we are all on perpetual diets and we all want veggies of some sort.  I don't like to cook plain old veggies and thought this sounded really good.  Not sure about the jalapeno yet,

Well both daughter and grandson (11th grade - driving to school) have started back to work and to school so my days are a little freer and my nights a little fuller.  If you are new to my blog they live here with my hubs and me.
