My Best Friend, Carol, brought this to a BBQ we had the other night AND it was just delightful!  I told her I needed to blog it and she happily agreed… of course, I made her snap a picture with the display plate 🙂  Then we promptly shared it!  How you can snap all these pictures without devouring it after?  (It didn’t even ruin our dinner)
