Desari- Thank you thank you!! This is why I love this site!!
I was sleeved 8/13 and told my family for the first time last night. It went well, except, the guys, turn to me and say " so your not making your famous potato casserole for Thanksgiving now are you!", LOL!  I was thinking of not making it, because it is way too tempting to me. But now that I can have an alternate casserole, I'm saved! I can totally make theirs and make this for me!! Thanks again.
