So lately I haven't been cooking a whole lot. My life has been so busy and on the go that I just haven't had the time. So we have been doing A LOT of eating out, and driving through. We have spent a lot of extra money doing this also, almost too much. So my husband and I decided that one week a month we were going to fast any extra spending, that includes eating out. So we started our first week Friday, and we have done wonderful so far, except for one date to the movies, and 2 cups of coffee. But as for meals it's been only my cooking. I have gotten use to not have to spend a lot of time preparing and cooking dinners. It's been kinda nice. So I have been trying to find dinners that didn't take a lot of time, and this one was perfect for that. It takes little time to prepare, and all you do to cook it is shove it all in a pan and simmer for a while and your done! It turned out better than what I was expecting!
