Seriously though guys, I know I am the only person who knows what the kitchen looks like in our house but why is it always my fault when there's nothing to eat?
Likely because this mentality has been passed down for generations.
Way to go June Cleaver.
SO blame the mom, there's no thawing carcass on the counter.
I guess the mom gets to create something out of, um, hmmm, *digs in the cupboard and back of fridge wildly* quinoa!!
June never cooked with that before.
Me - 1, Mrs. Cleaver - 0!
Now how to make this into a complete meal you say? Ha, I think I said that about 50 times while pacing the hallway.
You know what I really wanted tonight?
I wanted it because we picked up the most awesome local"ish" buffalo mozzarella and I made a marinara sauce the other day.
Way to go not taking out the chicken!
You guessed it, I was ready to try something new tonight.
I should really do this more often. Dinner tonight was AWESOME!
FAUX Chicken Parm, and I still got to use the buffalo mozz and my marinara!
So I do need to tell you it took some time, not like waiting for a cake to cool time but there are some steps.
First you need to rinse or soak your quinoa (I used red and white)
Then of course you need to boil it and let it cool a bit (20+ minutes).
Incorporate ingredients, form, fry and finally top with sauce/cheese and melt in the oven (15+)
Now the combining of ingredients etc. step could likely be scaled back if I had done this before, there were a few minor revisions and near catastrophes. I'll give you the clean version.
