WHAT'S FOR DINNER
The Mom Report is always on the lookout for delicious recipes that are healthy and easy to make. We tested this Pork Egg Roll In A Bowl by Kyndra Holley of Peace Love and Low Carb and it’s definitely a winner! You can make it with pork or chicken and it’s absolutely delicious over rice (if carbs aren’t a concern in your house).
