This is a recipe that is a shout out to my Mom. It is one that she made for us all the time, be it a side dish, a snack or something to take to a covered-dish supper. As with most things with my mother, it had to be delicious but also simple, which I appreciate now that I have to replicate my childhood food memories.
As an adult, I have found myself using this as a quick complete grab and go lunch item that I can make at the beginning of the week and throw into containers in the fridge. Grab this, an apple and a water; and I am ready for a day at the office. So yes Mom, you are still feeding me, even a million miles away!
