Bye bye Monday and hello to the rest of your week.  This easy easy recipe makes a great all-in-one dish for everyone in the family and even taste great the next day (if you have any left).  
Thank you Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom for sharing this recipe on your blog!  I added the mushrooms and a couple of very minor changes to it. Jamie has a very inspiring blog.
