On the second try, this meal went off without a hitch. Of course, I already had all of the ingredients ready and just had to assemble them and make a new loaf of garlic bread, but that is beside the point. No broken plates, no missing ingredients. Apparently hubby did have a caesar salad for lunch today, apparently not realizing I still planned to make it, but he says that mine was better than Panera's. I'm not always sure when he's just being nice or telling the truth, but I think he may have been serious this time. I do make excellent croutons.
See my previous post for cost comparisons, etc.
