  1. Well thanks for the comments regarding oregano, but you can use either dried or fresh with this reciepe, which is why it is listed twice. So has anyone tried them yet? Do you like them? I hope so, I make these for when my dad visits to make sure he is eating healthy as my mom doesn’t cook healthy at all. When my dad stays with me for 2 weeks at a time, he actually looses anywhere from 7 – 10 lbs with me. 🙂 I do try to keep my dad healthy cause I still need him even though I’m 43, I am still a daddy’s girl. LOL.. well I hope that y’all enjoy this meal.
