      Great job, and so glad I was able to help!

    2. Thanks delys and LLM! Still waiting for my copy to arrive at the library.

      1. As I planned my chile shopping, I found this page from Cooks Thesaurus site helpful

        1. Well, I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for my book to arrive. Yesterday, I decided to log into the library site and found that there was no order on record, and "YOU MUST SEE A LIBRARIAN." Turns out, my card had expired.

          Wish I had known this weeks ago when the announcement was made. Have ordered the book, but it will be the end of the month before it arrives, I fear.

            What a shame! Have a look at recipes on EYB - I am happy to paraphrase for you your choices.
