I am allllllll about super easy, super quick dinner recipes. I don’t know what it is about 5:00, but around here we call it CRAZY HOUR. It’s like something takes over my children and the natives become extremely hostile, if you know what I mean. It ain’t pretty.
So sometimes I am so frazzled and overwhelmed at supper time that I just want something that will get in those cranky bellies as soon as possible! That’s what is so great about this recipe. It’s only 4 ingredients and half of it is in my pantry and the other half is in my freezer, so even when I am running extremely low on groceries and fresh produce, I’ve always got this as a dinner option.
Also, for you momma’s with picky eaters – my two year old loves the sausage and green beans from this. He asks for seconds (Can I get a HALLELUJAH!?).
