Having returned from Singapore with more baggage than I left with (and I'm not talking about the check in kind), largely because I ate my way through as much food as possible in the two weeks...I am now contrite...time to pay up. But then, I did tell you I was getting on a healthy kick...I have been drinking more water than any bladder should legally hold, trying to cut carbs, and stick to high protein...this was fairly light as a meal, and certainly delicious. The double bonus was that is was quick and pretty well a self assembly job. I lined everything up on the bench and let them at it. To make it slimmer, leave the grated cheese out, though it does help stick everything together! 'O'-le!!
