Two posts today!! Aren’t you lucky? I’m trying to play catch-up…

I wanted something quick tonight for The Kid’s last meal with us before he goes to his dad’s for the summer. I’ve made this numerous times in the past, I’ve probably even blogged about it… but, you’re getting it again. You’re welcome. It’s one of The Kid’s favorites…

Thanks Kid for taking this great picture!

Unfortunately, I can’t eat this right now, but The Kid loves it. He’ll have two or three servings. He likes to put the salad together himself. When I first started making this, I would leave out the onion and green pepper. I would offer them as garnishment, but I noticed The Kid was skipping it…so, I started adding it into the meat. I’m so sneaky! He needs those vegetables. I can’t wait till July when I can eat this again!

Until next time…
Happy Blogging!
