When the weather gets hot, my life gets busy, or a combination of the two is going on, it becomes very easy to get tempted to swing by a drive thru on my way home from work. But not only is that hard on the pocket book, it's also not so good for a healthy lifestyle. That's why quick and easy meals that pack a punch of flavor are so important to me.
