I did not realize that I forgot to add the cream cheese untilmy husband and I were sitting down eating. It was still wonderful! My husband kept going on about how good it was as he gobbled it down. I loved it and when I asked my husband (who is as picky as a 6 year old when it comes to food) if he would eat it again, she replied with, "I hope that you make it again very soon!" Next time, I'll remember the cream cheese!
