      @paulahite: Oh my, really! Thank you, thank you! I made this last night and have to say Todd and I were really happy how it turned out. He really loved the flavor and enjoyed texture and flavors by dunking the bread slices in soup to saturate his taste buds. Haven't had Cornd Beef in a long while so making this was a real treat! Again, thank you!
