Your recipe looks great!

Love your opening line..starshine.

My kids are forever quoting lines from that movie. The only one I quote is when I can't hear them well and I call them a "Mumbler!".

It's wonderful to communicate with someone all the way in Israel!

Your flatbread on stones looks so neat!
