CHICKEN AVOCADO GRILLED CHEESE

CHICKEN AVOCADO GRILLED CHEESE

Me again proselytizing about ‘cooking once eating many times’. Last time we conversed it was all about making lots of chick peas in your pressure cooker. …Same tack…different ingredient: Chicken or whatever meat turns your winch, grilled one night with enough leftovers that can be used for so many other delicious meal for the following few days.
