Bachelor quarters are compact but they do have kitchens. Shiane (aka Shy) Rourke is big on one pan meals and this is a favorite. Of course, she has to triple the recipe when Gravedigger is around to eat. You can read their story in the newly released Nightrider MC book, NIGHT FALL. Just click on the cover to head to the buy page. If you have a subscription to Kindle Unlimited, you can read the book for free. Otherwise, it’s $2.99. Still a bargain! 😉

  1. Spicy dish for a spicy book. Which was awesome, by the way. I love Shy and Digger!

    I did Hubs’ much-beloved salsa chicken last night with beans and rice (Uncle Ben’s, 90 seconds in the microwave) and sliced avocados. So easy and so good.

      This time of year I’m all about quick, easy, and no heating things up in the kitchen… Well, no heating up the kitchen anyway. 😉 And thanks! Glad you enjoyed. 🙂
