A quick fix for Mondays

ImageErrr…..another Monday! I barely got myself out the door this morning, let alone prepped anything for supper tonight….

Just in case anyone else is in the same boat, I’ll share one of my favourite quick weeknight fixes for my family – it is easy to prepare and gets even easier when you enlist the kids to help tear, chop and toss!
