    I can’t really think of anything it would be bad with — once I had some roasted cauliflower with caramelized scallops and bacon that was to die for :)

    Haha, Bethany! That’s probably about the same approval rating I get in my own house ;)

    I made this tonight but used lime juice in place of lemon juice and it was a huge hit! As far as what to pair it with I went with homemade fried chicken, breast meat. Yum!
