I was feeling awesome that is until I tasted it. Oh man, SOMETHING in the recipe was off. Way off. Maybe the soy sauce was old or the onion was just that side of being good? Shawn loved it and had three bowls, but I had a hard time choking down my first serving. Or maybe it's me. Sometimes when I work really hard at a meal I just can't eat it. It can smell delicious, it can even taste good, but somehow in the process of making it I've lost my appetite for it and can't seem to eat it.
Does that happen to you? That after making a meal it just doesn't meet your expectations? Isn't that so disappointing?
I'll probably try quinoa fried "rice" again, but before I do I'm going to have to figure out which ingredient wasn't working this time. Right now I'm thinking we need a new bottle of soy sauce. How long does soy sauce stay good anyway?
