Doesn't this look yummy? This was in the All You email newsletter and I thought this is perfect for a Sunday dinner this week. We had a winter storm dump 4 inches on us today. I was out driving all over the place too. We have a bit of a lull tonight and then the middle of the night till noon tomorrow will bring another 3-4 inches. Par normal for Indiana so this is the perfect stay at home in warm, comfy clothes and eat wonderful fresh veggies and lean protein.
