        No, only 1 c. but it's placed in a separate baggie and put on top in the jar.

      Re: Another cute date idea

      I came across this idea and I find it fun and cute! The idea is to have a home-dinning experience with one of the local hosts on BonAppetour, and you will be treated to a fancy meal at their homes.
