Easy Week Night Dinner...by Justine



Salmon Baked in a Foil Parcel with Green Beans and Pesto (recipe in comments)

So super easy and yummy...if your family will eat fish that is.

By the way, has anyone tried Trader Joe's Baked Rice Snacks (seasoned with soy sauce and mirin) found in the frozen section? I love to heat one up at lunch time with my leftover...whatever. You know us Troups and our rice!
