Have you started your back to school shopping yet? I try to get it done as early as possible because I hate picking from the “leftovers”. I hate to admit that I over buy every single year – do you?
With my mind shifting to back to school, I have wanted to share some easy weeknight meals that are great for when the kids return to school in a few short weeks! Everyone could use more of those, right?
If you ever need a meal that relies on pantry staples, this Creole Tuna is for you! There’s a very good possibility that you already have all of the ingredients to make this dish on hand! It’s very budget friendly too!
