Could it be possible? MORE food discoveries?! YES! Another food discovery and one food rediscovery.
With all the new meal planning that Kevin and I have been doing in the last week we've been eating some really tasty meals and learning new things. Like.... I never knew what Arrowroot was before last week, where to find Lemongrass (duh!!!), and other random seasonings I never thought to add to my spice rack.
One major new thing we tried this week was Quinoa.I've been told about quinoa many many many times from many people and just never bit the bullet and bought it. We were both skeptical of it at first. I mean... after it's cooked it kinda looks like fish eggs. BUT we went through with it and mixed a little bit of the sauce we were having in with it and WOW oh WOW was it good. I mean it doesn't really have a flavor but at the same time it's great! What impressed me is I only made one cup of the dried quinoa and it cooked up to a lot of food. I just had some of it for lunch today. Quinoa and left over Asparagus from last night. Which brings me to another point in my post....
My rediscovery....Asparagus! It took me well into adulthood to try asparagus and actually like it. So when Asparagus popped up on the meal plan menu I got a little excited. I cooked them up last week with a little bit of olive oil, sea salt and pepper and.......... yummy yummy! There were no leftovers! And again... using a similar meal plan this week asparagus was on the menu again. This time we had leftovers and I mixed them in my lunch today with the quinoa as mentioned before.Add a sliced tomato with sea salt to the mix and YUMMY.
So now I'm out looking through Pinterest at all the pinteresting quinoa ideas. This could replace our boring brown rice!
