Yum, that's a recipe I'm going to have to try. I volunteer with Eat Well Guide and wanted to let you know about our Thanksgiving Local and Organic Challenge. We’re inviting people to take a spin on the Eat Well Guide to find local food and cook at least one local (preferably organic) dish for Thanksgiving, and share recipes at the CU site. You can read more about it at the Green Fork:

Happy Thanksgiving!
