I started this meal at 6:10 and had it sitting on the table at 6:29. I cooked everything in one pan and the microwave. Woo hoo. I know there was a little bit of processed food, but it was mostly nutritious and inexpensive. The cost was less than $10.00 to make a nice Tuesday dinner for me and the hubs.

  1. Really looks good! Jackie dosen’t like Uncle Ben’s rice. Rather use regular rice – which defeats the quick meal plan. You can cook for me any time!
