      I made this last night when my mother-in-law came over for dinner. It was the first time I've ever cooked for her so I was really glad she enjoyed it! The lemon really makes a difference. I found myself snacking while waiting for the rest of the dinner to cook. Thanks cooking_geek for sharing such a simple yet delicious recipe!
