While I thought that every at-home Wednesday I spent with my daughter would be the perfect time to meal prep and bake all day, it’s actually nothing like that. Wednesdays are the days where I have the least time to do much of anything. So, I have a small stash of quick and easy recipes that I go through during week nights.

I used the La belle excuse white balsamic vinegar in this particular recipe, it makes the best vinaigrettes and it can be found at the grocery store.
