Simple is key for me. Probably like many of you, my day is non-stop from the moment I wake-up to the time I crash at night. Although I spend plenty of time planning our meals, carving out time to cook dinner becomes the real chore. Often times, I find myself preparing dinner while helping my kids with homework which means dinner can’t be too complicated.
However, I don’t want to sacrifice taste for simplicity. Thank goodness meals like this offer both. It’s quick and easy to whip but the flavors give the illusion that you’ve been working on this dinner all day.
