Let's face it, eating out costs money. And since we rarely get out without the kids, it really isn't that much fun either. Unless you think repeatedly pulling a two year old off the table is fun. I don't. So eating out costs money and it isn't usually fun with a couple of pre-schoolers in tow. But when Friday night rolls around I don't want to cook. For some reason in my little head I'm still associating Friday night to date night (sometimes it still is!), and I'm not ready to give in to it being like every other night.
So when take-out isn't happening, I've come up with a list of our favorite restaurant items made with ingredients from the freezer. Here's one of our go-to Friday night-almost at a restaurant-options.
It really couldn't be easier! While my husband and I are dining on fish tacos and mango salsa the boys are in heaven eating their fish sticks. Its a win-win dinner!
