Marcia that looks sooo tempting! I love your red takes. But I hope you link back to Ruby Tuesday (host) and use a permalink (to link to your RT post and not your URL) because it makes it easy for most of us to access it.

Looks good enough to eat. Now if I can just get past the movie image of a rat preparing it, I'll be fine. Happy RT.
