I’m proud to share the lastest (and best) with you so far. These are as healthy as they are good, and so you can imagine my satisfaction when my husband actually requests that I make them again. So enjoy these on a busy night, and be sure to double the recipe so you can freeze some for another night. (For more great tips on freezer meals, check out THIS post.)
