I finally checked this one off my to do list!
It has been the object of my procrastination for half of January, but I have finally checked the box and am so glad I did! In the midst of some fast food runs and a few too many desserts, we were in dire need of some vegetables and whole grains and this was the perfect vehicle for both of them.
These little things are healthy, easy to throw together, and incorporate a lot of broccoli in a way that’s much more appealing than straight veggies (to us!).
