Alright enough with the rambling…let’s get on to today’s recipe! Let us continue on with our love affair of vegetables! Today’s recipe is quick, easy, and healthy; it makes a perfect weeknight side dish when you ain’t got time for anything fancy! ๐Ÿ™‚ They’re very lemony so if you love yourself some lemon juice, get on this recipe!
