Random Recipe

On Saturday, Kev, Aspen and I attended a potluck party with some friends and enjoyed a lot of different and delicious foods. I was so excited that I only had to make one dish, but I got to eat like, 7 others too. Best way to enjoy dinner.

I was brave and made a meal that was new to me, but thankfully it turned out quite edible. And my cookies were a hit too (even though they didn't look enough like poop for my liking).

Broccoli and Shrimp Quinoa
1/2 C sun dried tomatoes
1.5 C vegetable/chicken broth or stock
1 C finely chopped onion
3 cloves finely chopped garlic
1/4 C lemon juice
1 C quinoa
2 C broccoli florets
10 medium shrimp (I used frozen, and more than 10)

-Heat some olive oil in a large skillet and cook the shrimp for about 2 minutes.
-Remove the shrimp and add the onion and garlic to the skillet, cooking until soft.
-Add lemon juice, broth and quinoa. Bring to a boil and simmer (covered) for 15 minutes.
-Add broccoli, tomatoes and shrimp. Simmer for 5 minutes.

I adapted this from the organic cookbook Amazon was giving away free for Kindle users (thanks Mandi for the hookup) and just used what I had. Which happens to be NOT organic. But hey, I still used vegetables. And even though Kev doesn't love seafood, he still ate this. Score!
