We have been blessed with an early spring which NEVER happens in this part of the country , all of the snow is gone!!! I won't be cooking any meat in the house until the snow flies again ( which may be next week with our luck). Tonight will be grilled chicken breast and broccoli

Do tell LP. When you "crust" the fish is the quinoa uncooked before cooking it on the fish? And is it then fried? I am very interested in the recipe.

Enjoy your meal and visit!!

Shake n' Bake chicken thighs. I mixed the pork S&B with panko to cut down on the saltiness, and smeared the skinless thighs with mayo to make it stick.

I have a package of quinoa to try. I wanted to toast it first, but I found out that it's a mix and not just quinoa and I don't want to ruin it.
