Hi Annie,

I haven't been to your blog for a computer dumped all of my saved bookmarks! :( Bad computer, bad computer! :) I love the photo of Isabelle....she's so cute toothless! I love that stage :)

Your recipe sounds wonderful! I'm going to have to make that this weekend... I have a busy weekend, and that sounds perfect!....hopefully I can find hominy (last time I looked for it the store I was at didn't have any), if not, I'll use corn (I know, it's not the same, but it will work)

Sandra said...
