Description

Beginning in the pandemic, I was bored like most people so I decided to start cooking more and coming up with my own dishes. One thing I do not like about cooking is the stress of it and trying to stick to a specific recipe. So I decided to create this recipe so that it can be adjusted in anyway. If one person wants to cook it for themselves, they can. If they want to make it for a party, they can do that as well. There are no measurements because its a very casual recipe and I made it and have shared with others who want to not worry about specifics when cooking.
