T.G.I.Friday!!! finally the end of the week.
Going out for happy hour while i'm trying to eat healthy and stay in line is a tad hard... all the delicious drinks and food that await are like giant teasers. Tonight we will be going to a sushi place *sigh of relief* sushi is one of those things i don't feel guilty when i eat it. I've even taken a sushi making class :) which might i add i kicked butt at!
On to other news .. my mother showed up at my apartment today with that book "50 shades of grey", not too sure how i feel about that haha. So for lunch i wanted to make her something she had never had..Quinoa.
I found this recipe on pinterest and knew i had to have it, Corn mixed quinoa.
I altered some of the ingredients and served it with honey glazed chicken.
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup quinoa
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tbsp butter
1 can corn
So to make the quinoa i boiled the broth with the quinoa and then let it simmer for about 20min. After it soaked up the broth i fluffed it and added the corn and and butter.
Grill the chicken and then glaze the honey over it before serving.
To add more color to the dish i would suggest serving with a green veggie!
