  1. Thank you for posting my recipe, Dear Friend! I hope your followers try it & enjoy it! Love to All, Kathy <3

    1. It was so good! Can't wait till the next recipe exchange to see what you are gonna bring.

  2. This looks like another one I would like. Thanks Kathy and Linda for sharing this.

    1. Think you will like this one.Maybe Monica would also.

  3. Thank you Kathy and Linda. This looks like another one I will be trying. I have never heard of Mirin though. I don't recall even seeing it. But I will ask at the store for it. Kathy I love that beautiful smile of yours.

    1. Dottie- if you don't make many things with Mirin don't get it. I'm sure it will be ok without it.

    2. Thank you, Dottiemaye, for your kind words about my smile. I just added the mirin, it's a Japanese seasoned cooking wine, for added flavor, but as Linda said you are totally fine without it!

  4. This recipe looks delicious. Wish I had a serving of it for my lunch today. Thank you Kathy and Linda for sharing this. Linda, I miss seeing pictures of Max. I hope he is well.

    1. Hi Barbara

      Max has been very, very ill but think and HOPE that he might be ok. He has lost some weight ( which is a good thing because it's easier on his joints)and is able to go for short walks. THANK YOU so much for asking about him.
