This is a great recipe that the whole family will love! since there's only 3 of us, this lasts for about 2-3 days! we are so busy during the day so im always eating dinner leftovers for lunch! I love being prepared so I can always have healthy choices! If I'm hungry, not prepared and don't have time to cook... I'm gonna reach for the crap!!
