It is a great way to clean the veggie hamper of all the things that are stored in there and a wonderful hot dish for a still very cold late April day - we had some snow today again and the car windows were frozen early in the morning.
Don`t you just hate it to throw out all the Penguins who are sitting in your back yard in the early hours of the day!!! : D
