Before we get to the chewy center, I wanted to remind you all: If you want to be in the ME Meal Challenge, make sure to email me your recipe and (for a double entry) post it up on your blog with a link. (I am making a free e-book with them all in it!) Both this challenge and the Amazing Meal Challenge end on Monday AM.
