In keeping with my lemony kick, I made up a chicken recipe with a lemon-based marinade. It was fine; nothing amazing, but certainly worth tweeking for future meals. What you do need to learn from this venture is that the red quinoa from Trader Joe's is icky. It honestly tastes like dirt. I don't know how, I don't know why, but it didn't taste yummy-in-my-tummy the way that regular ol' brown quinoa does. Anyone else have this experience?
But, let me get back to dinner here. Really, the moral of this story is that anything with mushrooms, shallots, and BUTTER is sublime. You just can't argue with perfection.
