Ok, ok, I'm sorry! You're like the only one who comments on my blog! That's why I comment on yours all the time because if you're anything like me, by the time I finish a blog, it feels like a great accomplishment, and I want some feeback! So thanks for your comments, I like them a lot! And I hope you like mine! about an easy recipe for something with hamburger? They like lamb a lot over here, so I actually have "lamburger" in my fridge right now...any suggestions?
