Easy Marinades

Last week I tweeted about my dinner, which was to be cod in a garlic/parmesean/lemon marinade.  My friend, who shall remain anonymous, replied that she was about the enjoy Heinz baked beans.  (I use the word "enjoy" advisedly.)  Unnamed friend: this post is for you.

Marinades are definitely the unsung heros of dinner - they're quick, easy, and healthy.  I'll share three of my favorites with you below to get you started, but do use them as jumping off points for anything you can imagine!  But first: what do you do with a marinade?

And then cook the meat appropriately - easy peasy!

Now, because there is nothing attractive about meat and marinade in a ziplock bag and because I didn't document any of my recent relevant culinary adventures, I have no images for you to demonstrate my methods.  However, we all love pictures of pretty tablescapes, so I have sweated over a hot computer for many hours to bring you the best al fresco fantasy scenarios to match each of the three marinades below.  Ready?  Let's go!

What do you have on the menu for this week?
