Once again a delicious looking meal Tulip! What do you have for lunches and breakfasts?

My friends call me Tulip said...

Hi Marie, I usually have leftovers for lunch or maybe soup, an oopsie roll stuffed with IPD filling. For breakfast it could be an IPD muffin or a variation of egg and bacon. Check out the breakfast & Lunch pages of my kitchen filing system on the right had side of my blog. That should satisfy your curiosity.
Have you started yet? Are you sick of me asking you yet? lol

Hi Marie,

Thanks for the recipe - I will try it soon, it looks great.

I don't know what others think, but I personally find websites with music very annoying - particularly when the music player is halfway down the page - its hard to figure out which page is playing that darn song!
