I needed something easy for dinner tonight. We spent the afternoon at the beach!! In February… I know, I was excited. I was even worried about sunscreen for the baby!! But It was sunny and kinda warm, until the clouds came. So after spending most of the day at the beach, playing in the sand. I wasn’t wanting to think to much in the kitchen for dinner. This dish comes together super easy, and is very flavorful. Hope you enjoy too!
