Vanessa "Nikita" Milare


I know its hard to work, take care of a family & somedays still make dinner. Trust me I know how you all feel. After working a full 8 hrs aday then coming home to take care of my Uncle & the house. Making dinner can just be sometimes over willing. But one trick I have come up with is making meals a head of timeor using what ever leftovers I have handy. This is one of many leftover meals. My Uncle loves them... :)
