We made this for dinner last night and everyone ate it (even Kate had some). We are trying out some simple recipes this time of year to keep the stress level as low as possible. To make it more festive, add some chopped, fresh tomatoes to make it red and green (peas).

Bill doesn't like it either. He suggested it would be nice with rice:) I just really like trying new things.

I like it too:)
