something different

I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend and Promise margarine and cut the recipe in half. Served it along side pan-roasted chicken thighs with a balsamic vinegar/shallot sauce--the two items complimented each other nicely. Also served some roasted aspargras with this, nice combination and made a nicely colored plate.
