This week I’m trying a bunch of new recipes.  Actually, they’re all of the recipes that I prescribed for Gary’s meal plan this week.  And they aren’t half bad, if I do say so myself :)  This is a quick, healthy, and easy one I threw together Sunday night.  Since I don’t like onions or garlic, it eliminated a lot of the ingredients, haha.  Fortunately, this was still flavorful and delicious!
