Oven Fajitas

I'm sorry for my recent absence! I've been in full "get ready for baby" mode! I'm due in just 3 days and I think I'm finally feeling ready. I've been organizing, cleaning and stocking my freezer with meals and my pantry with yummy snacks! Not to mention buying final things, washing baby clothes and trying to get some rest before a newborn keeps me up all night!

One of the first meals I made when meal planning were these oven fajitas. They are simple, flavorful and can be easily whipped up. You could also cut up the raw ingredients and then freeze them to make one night. Simply thaw and then follow instructions accordingly. 

I will be making these again soon for sure since they allowed for leftovers and were quick to throw together-perfect for a new mom!
