Quinoa and Brie with Sautéed Mushrooms

This week was Valentine’s Day and since I was old enough to be someone’s valentine, this day was ignored: No special gifts, no flowers, because my birthday is a few days later, but no birthday without flowers


No romantic Valentine’s supper, but food I love is
