….and probably failing. Wanna see my faux-healthy lunch that I made for tomorrow?
It’s quinoa, spinach, mushrooms, and an unholy amount of parmesan cheese. It’s pretty good and maybe I’ll make it again without (so much) cheese.
If you’re wondering how I made it: I made the quinoa, cooked the mushrooms in EVOO, and thawed the spinach, then mixed the three together with enough salt, pepper, garlic powder and cheese to make it taste unhealthy.
Also, can I please take this moment to briefly self-promote? It’s still freezing cold outside, and I think it would be a great idea for you to buy one of my scarves! Each one is knitted by yours truly.

So tonight, we made our first dish for the dip contest, Black Bean, Red Pepper, Corn and Quinoa Salad. This one can be served cold, and the instructions didn’t look too difficult, so I thought it would be a good choice to make on a weeknight and still leave enough time to watch my Thursday night Fox programming. Also, it’s healthy enough to eat for dinner.
Anyway, I didn’t even know what quinoa looked like when I was looking for it at the grocery store. I ended up having to go to the health food specialty store across the street, because the regular grocery store didn’t have it. I had never eaten it, and now I can’t get enough. This dip is great.
