As cool weather arrives cravings for carbs; crusty bread spread thick with butter, fun sugary cookies or chocolate deserts rich in fat. Not entirely a bad thing however holidays have not even quite around the corner. So it seems maybe a good thing when we can resist the urge to stuff ourselves with calories lacking in nutritive value and find foods that will satisfy. Today as i opened my refrigerator to source a quick and easy lunch i was slightly disappointed to see that i had nothing ready made for my mid-day feast. So, drawing from what I did have here’s what i came up with. Savory, totally satisfying and easy…
