This recipe is from the January 2012 Southern Living magazine.  I made a note to try this back in January, and I am kicking myself for waiting so long.  This was SO DANG GOOD!  I mean really, really, really good.  I want to eat this every day! This makes enough for about 6 people.  We ate it for dinner and I ate leftovers for lunch.  It was just as good reheated.  I could eat this every week.  I can’t stop thinking about it!  Make this ASAP; I promise you will love it!
