I am always happy to find a recipe that my family loves and that I can make in under 30 minutes. With 5 boys at home, our evenings are chock full and I don’t have time to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. We have homework to do and places to be (scouts, basketball, wrestling etc:) These lettuce wraps are so tasty–my family gobbles them up and I could not believe how easy and quick they are to make. Winner!
My husband wanted a “sauce” to go on top, so I used some of this Thai Peanut Sauce recipe here that I keep in my freezer (frozen in ice cube tray size portions) You could also serve it with a bottled plum sauce. Yum! I personally didn’t think it needed a sauce, but it was really good that way!
I have made some big changes over at my other blog Mel and Boys that I am very excited about. Check it out and let me know what you think:) I am kicking off the new year with a post on time management tools with links to my favorite planners and free printables to keep you organized. What do you use to keep on top of things?
