Easy Fajita Stuffed Avocados for Quick Weeknight Meal
Confession: I struggle with meal prep. I’m really good at planning out menus for the week. I love shopping the sales. I don’t mind cooking either. But somewhere between school lunches and busy after school activities – the planned menus and meal prep go out the window about mid week, easily sacrificing fresh and tasty meals for convenience.
Anyone else feel me?
But 2020 is the year where I need to be a little more diligent with our family budget. We spent and wasted so much fresh food last year, just because we were NOT prepared. That’s money we could have used to not only feed our family, but feed our soul. I’m hopping back on the meal prep/make ahead bandwagon again with these Easy Fajita Stuffed Avocados for a quick weeknight meal. Let’s make weeknight dinners less stressful this year!
