Check out my new kicks!
My wonderful daughter (luvs ya Goo) surprised me with these new custom shoes. Great witch hat.
The Salem Witch House is on the side of each shoe.
The back reads 'All Hallow's Eve' with my initials underneath.
As soon as the weather drops below a hundred degrees it might be time to wear these.
Do you like quinoa? We love it. If you have never made it you should give it a try. Above, I have cooked 2 cups of quinoa with 4 cups of lightly salted water. Bring the water to a boil and stir in the quinoa. Turn the burner to low and simmer covered for about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it sit covered for about another 15 minutes then toss it with a fork and let it cool.
I forgot a few pics. In a bowl, pour 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper, diced red onion, sliced green onion, diced cucumber, sliced cherry tomatoes, sliced kalamata olives, 3 grated carrots and lots of fresh parsley. Drizzle in a teaspoon of honey. Add about 1/2 cup of feta or more to taste. Mix this all together
Oh....I remembered to take a pic of the olive addition.
And one of adding the quinoa.
Here it is all mixed together. Do you ever notice how my food always matches my counter top? Weird!
Here is the ring and tamper I used for the crab cakes recenty. I love this tool. You can use it in so many different ways.
I put several large spoonfuls of the salad in the ring and then tamp it down. I'm not sure why but I get great satisfaction out of doing this.
Voila! Cool salad presentation.
You can drizzle this with a bit of balsamic glaze for added color and flavor. You can also add jalapenos and cilantro for a southwestern flavor.
