Waving back, crewsk & jkath.

YUmmmmmmm. GB, got me thinking about cheese (I've got cheese on the brain today-another recipe chat)...so thinking, what the heck, maybe sprinkle some grated Parmesan on 'em too. (Guess I wont be counting fat grams till Jan. 2005.)

I have had bad luck frying things in pots. The fryer I'm getting has a lid that closes when frying.
