A few years ago, right before Josh and I got married I was living with my sister- and that's when it happened. I came home form work and Laura said- Try this. It looked harmless. It was a buiscut. Sort of. Inside of it was meat and chocolate.
Yes, Meat and Chocolate.
Well needless to say- it was also AWFUL. poor Laura was only trying to mix her two favorite things to eat. This has always stuck with me. How to mix chocolate and meat.
Well recently I mentioned this to some people in one of my classes and the next time we came to class there was my friend Tonya with two recipes. I have included them below.
