    You asked if I hear the music... this recipe was singing delicious melodies of savory delectables...
    I love sage dressing... and acorn squash? Over the top! Your creation sounds divine -- question is: when's dinner? I'll bring the rolls and wine ;-)

    Nice to see you -- have been extraordinarily busy... thank you for pointing me in this direction!

    Only the best,
    Duckie
