I love a quick dinner at this time of year and something less festive and practical is always good. You need energy for all that wrapping and gift buying you are in the middle of! Right?

If you want to keep up with my culinary adventures through images, follow on Instagram straight away. You will be ahead of the game on what is likely to make it to the blog based on YOUR popular opinion!

SO, whipped this up in a jiff and here it is for you. If the season is getting to you, (already) fear not, plan ahead to have a few staples in the pantry and freezer and you can be eating this in oh…about 14 minutes. Move over Jamie Oliver. I got you beat.
