A fANNEtastic Lunch

Today’s lunch was fANNEtastic!

Quinoa Salad with Pecans and Cranberries

After working through the morning and teaching TRX, I swung by the grocery store to pick up lots of food because tomorrow I will be prepping a few dishes for our Friendsgiving party on Saturday.

I wrote down all of the ingredients I needed for several of the recipes, and my mouth started watering as soon as I visited Anne’s blog, fANNEtastic Food, and copied down everything I needed for her quinoa salad with pecans and cranberries. After looking at her beautiful pictures, I knew I wanted to get a jump start on cooking and decided to prep the salad this afternoon so I could have some for lunch.

I doubled the recipe since we’ll be serving a large group and once it was done, I scooped several large spoonfuls into a bowl for myself.
