I came up with this recipe one night when my husband was on his way home and I realized that I hadn't cooked any dinner. My daughter and I had eaten PB&J from the blueberry jam I had made the day before. I knew he wouldn't want a sandwich so I started digging in the fridge and pantry. I was expecting a grimace from my picky eater when he sat down to eat. Boy was I happy when he gave me a smile and a thumbs up! He took leftovers to work the next day, and coworkers were begging him for the recipe. I had to remember what I did because I hadn't written anything down!
