Today are the AFC & NFC championship playoff games so I decided to make a hearty but fun dish for my husband. And guess what happened?
Because I made a big deal about this being ‘for daddy’, the kids were all over helping and then eating a bowl of it.
Just goes to show you, show some excitement and the kids might just excited to try a recipe too!
