    This could not be more perfect. My daughter went away with her youth group to Panama City Beach FL for a week. While she was gone I redecorated her room in a beach theme. My Friends pitched in and as a thank you I am having them over to see the finished room and feed them or course. I will be serving these. Thanks!!!

    The spuds sound very good. But when the beans turn them into flip flops ... I'll be sticking my foot in my mouth ... again. (lol) I've bookmarked it, thanks.
