    Beli,

    Do you ever eat a plain ham sammy, or a cheesburger? :laugh:

    You the man! I think you could put together a mean cookbook. Your cover alone would sell millions.

    You could also put some pizza sauce on them then add your cheese and topping. I am sure Val would be all over them. Your not allowed because your on a diet. (I'm not allowed either) :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: See you in Atlanta...

    With so many replies already last night it seems silly to add my two cents this morning, but man, those really look great! ...and the sunset... so beautiful. I think what I like about egging the most is that it pushes us all to be more creative!...very nice. :)

    Julia your reply and kind words are very much appreciated TKS. It's true egging brings out some hidden qualities from all of us which otherways we wouldn't know we had them. ;)
