So I stumbled across this recipe while doing some meal planning, and thought it looked yummy and easy to put together, so I added it to the meal plan (despite having done this, I still almost forgot to make it). Tonight's dinner was A's request of mac and cheese, and I didn't add any veggies to it, so I thought it would be a great idea.
This was really tasty. It wasn't a great pairing with said mac and cheese, but it was delicious on its own. And so very easy; I was able to do the whole thing while the mac and cheese baked in the oven.
Sorry for the awful picture; I forgot to adjust the white balance. I'm also just realizing it's totally blurry. Great job.
