    I voted! Good luck! I need some new pans SO bad. I’d probably put the skillet to the test and make some burgers.

    By the way, I owe you a BIG thank you for your Corn and Chicken Chowder! It was a HUGE hit last night. We don’t use a lot of avocado in our cooking but this recipe was really kicked up a notch with the addition of it! My husband said he was already looking forward to lunch tomorrow because of the leftovers.
