So quick, so tasty, so very flavourful.
Things I am in dire need of while grappling with our new life. It can be hectic with one toddler, but throw an often unsettled infant into the mix and you’ve got a whole other ball game. Dinners once spent at the dining room table are now hectically eaten with babe to breast over a messy living room ottoman.
And I love it.
I have lots of pictures to share and stories to tell, but they will have to wait for another day. Soon!
