Alison's grocery store tips:
This dish probably takes 10 minutes to get into the oven. My kids love it, and fish is one of those foods that's sometimes hard to get kids to eat. Recommend serving this with some brown rice or a slice of whole grain bread.
Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
This dish takes just minutes to prepare, as long as the potatoes are cooked. You can cook them the night before, or over the weekend, and simply reheat. Kids love to add all the toppings. You can use whatever beans or cheese or salsa you might have on hand. You can even serve with a few tortilla chips as a garnish.
