Sorry, this is the recipe my computer ate earlier. Could have been operator error. This is said to be served in an up coming royal wedding luncheon. I'm so excited, and will watch every minute of it. This is adapted from a dish served when the Queen of England was crowned in 1953. I'm also linking to Full Plate Thursday at Miz Helen's Country Cottage. Come join us.
