One good thing about rainy afternoons in Florida is that they often mean slightly cooler evenings.
Perfect for pre-dinner walks with Sadie!
Our little stick-lover found a great one about 10 minutes into our walk and had a field day.
Check out that waggin’ tail!
I am on a bit of a quinoa kick.
It’s nutritious, tasty and incredibly easy to prepare.
On Sunday evening the past two weeks, I cooked up a big batch of quinoa to have on hand throughout the week and find that it makes dinner prep super easy! (Quinoa, berries and peanut butter is also one of my favorite healthy snacks these days. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it!)
For lunch today, I prepared a big batch of cheesy quinoa chicken that Ryan and I ate again for dinner. I took all the meat off of a rotisserie chicken that I bought on sale at the grocery sore yesterday and stirred it into a large, reheated bowl of quinoa, adding roasted green beans, sautéed Portobello mushrooms and shredded mozzarella cheese.
It came together in a flash and was an incredibly satisfying and savory dish.
Next up in my quinoa adventures is making this peanut butter quinoa granola. It must be done!
Any other quinoa recipes out there I need to try? I’d like to keep my quinoa kick kickin’!
