As I am expanding my cooking into new flavors, this meal was a real new taste of deliciousness.  It was super simple & delicious. My favorite part about cooking is doing it with my children.  Sometimes I ask just one to help as a special “Mommy time”, or all join to have family cooking time.

Of Course it’s all about cooking a rainbow of colors to have a variety of nutrients.  Colors used: Dark Green, Green, Red, Brown, White,
