With the kids at school and a little time on my hands, I’m going to make a really healthy dinner tonight. When it’s busy around here, I find myself relying on bacon cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets for dinner. This is not only unhealthy but expensive as well! With just a few simple ingredients, this Vegetable Medley recipe will be ready in about an hour.
I know that if I can get one good meal under my belt today then all of those other meals will fall into place tomorrow too. Let me show you how easy it is to throw together this delicious vegetable medley dish: 1) Chop onion and garlic cloves; 2) Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat…
