We do not eat enough quinoa. Tonight we decided to correct this. Often we are guilty of planning a meal around a particular animal protein putting the veggies and grains on the side. While we always choose lean proteins (when we are not trying to impress dinner guests), we decided to spend this week putting quinoa and veggies on center stage. Whenever I am unsure of how to prepare an ingredient my go to online resource is the Whole Foods site. I stumbled across this recipe: Zesty Quinoa with Broccoli and Cashews. They are not kidding when they say this meal is “zesty!” It was quite delicious and we are going to put it into our regular “rotation” for quick and nutritious week night meals.

What has happened here in four years? Well, you can check out the blog but for a speed-up review: two kids, two houses, a few cars, the same career but lots of new knowledge from practice and failure, some adventures to distant places, some fantastic stay-cations, and a bit of dabbling in new hobbies. As my Instagram handle notes: Coffee is my spirit animal. Mama covered in boys. Wife covered in kisses. Teacher covered under grading. Potter in the making. That sums it up for the most part! I hope you enjoy your visit and come back soon and often and share yourself too here in the comments. View all posts by Melissa
