Sometimes when I get home from my day I feel so tired that I could just go to bed, and skip dinner all together. Don’t do that, it doesn’t need to be that difficult; having some necessities on hand will make mid-week dinners a lot more delicious and a lot less painful. This recipe is very simple, but don’t let that fool it because it is absolutely delicious.
