I have to be creative with my evening meals because my kids have lots of events in the evenings. Karate 2x per week, Dance 4x, gymnastics 2x, piano 1x and church 2x... whew! Because this cuts into my evening meal prep time, I will be doing some creative crock pot cooking.
This was a very tasty dish. My son said he didn't like artichokes by themselves but they were good when he ate it with the rest of the dish. My husband said it was "zesty" and "good".... how are those for descriptive words? Anyway, it was very good, and my kids all ate it very well, which is the true test!
