Well when ever I try is I find itís all too runny. Maybe I should fry it first. Have you been looking at your Ripley Believe it or not cards again?

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

LOL....just asking some questions..and having kids filled with curiosity helps too...I could try frying it but I want to keep it in the shell...I suppose I could put it on a spit roast ......don't see how frying it will help !!;)...but...that could be a fun thing to do ..to try and fry it in the shell...It's bound to split though don't you think ?
