Two cute things and two delicious things to tell you about.
I bought this dress for my conference in Chicago and it was/is perfect!!! Comfortable and serious and grownup yet with fun box pleats - readers, if you are looking for an all-occasion dress (weddings, party at boss's house, somber events, bidness functions), get it!

I guess you could use ground turkey but once you start cooking with American 'cheese' it's better to let go of all pretense. Let go of your pride; make room for the compliments.
