Yes, it is!
I am glad you tried it.

I served this on Thanksgiving and it was a big hit with everyone.

I thought this recipe was interesting but would not be very good. It was excellent. Simple, Healthy, and very good flavors. Mr. Plume should try it. I am a big guy. Mr. Plume is a big guy. How sad to be a big guy and not eat well? I don't think Mr. Plume eats well. It seems as if he eats a lot, but he eats shit-food. I could be wrong. I don't want that to seem like I am picking on him, just a small constructive criticism. He's sterling.

This was excellent. I thought It was going to be OK, but it was very very good. The spices mixed together quite well.

Mr. Plume should try it. It's got to be healthy and low fat.

Sorry. I only meant to leave one comment. now I have left 3. I also wanted my name to be " Msgr. Cockgargler, K.B.E" and I see it is "Mike". How boring!
