  1. Fast & easy. Very mild flavored. It hit the spot!!
  2. Just had this for dinner and enjoyed it immensely. Served it with rice pilaf and spinach salad which made for a great healthy combination. Nice flavor, healthy and oh so quick. This is exactly what the dietician (pre diabetic) ordered. Thank you!

<p>I live in TN with a husband, 9 year old, 6 year old, and our two dogs. I'm a busy mom who loves to cook for family and friends. We have two boys, and they are the light of my life! My husband is a restaurant manager. We actually met while working together at Bob Evans in another city. He was one cute grill cook!! Now he is one cute manager, and I am so proud of him! He currently works for El Chico, and he is very happy there. <br />I am a stay at home mom who sometimes does temp work, which is a big change from corporate America. We'll see how that goes. Now that I have some more time, I plan to get back to the kind of cooking I used to do. You know...with pots and pans instead of a take out menu. I love to crochet, garden and hike with the family. Thanks in advance for any reviews you do of my recipes. :)</p>
