Quinoa…here I go, here I go…

Do you think one can get ill or sick out of trying to eat too healthy?  Sometimes I ponder on that one.  Maybe my aging stomach resents all this good-for-me stuff.

I know one thing…I am getting tired of cooking, peeling, eating and then washing the dish and pan.  I know, I know…we been through this already.  Just pretend this is new stuff for you.  I am trying to change the posting and put something fresh.  Even I get tired of looking at the same thing all the time.

On another subject matter, fascinating people from eighteen countries (18) got curious enough to stop by and read my thoughts.  I am more international than national.  Not really, it is about even.  Just the perfect amount of people to keep happy.

Oh…yes…the picture…I am on a Quinoa-state-of-mind right now.  Love that stuff.  Prepare like Tabbouleh, and put tomatoes, cilantro, olive oil, extra virgin of course!, juice from a lime, red pepper, cucumber and anything that I have in the fridge that may go with it.  Heavenly!   Keep the cilantro fresh by placing it in the fridge in a container with water, just like you would do with flowers.  Lasts more than a week.

Well…now I feel fresher and updated…so it is another day in my Quinoa side of this world.

What’s next, I will keep it surprise, for you and for…me!

    I keep forgetting to buy and cook quinoa. I get too distracted with buying and dipping into bottles like the one you have in the background. How ’bout a photo of you holding up a glass of red in one hand and a forkful of quinoa in the other?

      About the picture, I really don’t think so…that bottle of wine is there to add ambiance to the kitchen. Quinoa is so easy to prepare and is good for us. To our health!

      Hey Kadzi, I forgot to mention, alcohol burns brain cells, and to start with I have a diminishing population of neurons. Catch 22. Part of the many fringe benefits of joining the rolls of senior citizenship. Have a good, happy day!
