Upon my return from vacation, I found this sweet card and box of candies in my mailslot from Sarah, a friend and resident at the hospital where I work. I was so tickled since it was such a sweet gesture!
In the evening I decided to be bold and try something new! I had never made quinoa before and, after having it at a few restaurants and reading about how easy it is to prepare, I thought I would give it a go! Turns out, it really is easy to make! It is also neat to look at...
...and photograph some more!
I sauteed up some veggies to go with it -
- and also re-heated some of the left-over Christmas Tofurky that I had frozen.
I love the curly Qs of quinoa!
I put everything together and added some walnuts for a little more protein.
And...still fun to photograph. :)
