    Griz you are a nut. You know it would be impossible to see my toes any way. hahahahahahaha My Mom passed when I was very young also. My daddy raised me and had always been in the kitchen when Mamma cooked so he was able to tell me a lot of her recipes. Also one of my sisters is 20 years older than me so she knows a lot of them and tells me also. Yak at ya later my friend,
