Now I'm looking out the window at slippery sidewalks and rock hard snowbanks. Get ready for treadmill pictures tomorrow because this is a run day!
Quinoa--do you like it? I have been super into it lately. Mostly because I made too much one night and we do not waste food in our household. My favorite quinoa concoction has been southwestern quinoa (corn + black beans + chili powder = southwestern right?). Yesterday I ventured even further south and made Mexican quinoa, which is what I call adding salsa and cheese to quinoa. I do not know why. Probably because my idea of Mexican rice is adding salsa and cheese?
We received a very wonderful package in the mail yesterday...it contained our VERY FAVORITE homemade jams! Loquat strawberry and loquat apricot. Do you know what a loquat is? It is a fruit that apparently grows very happily in southern Cal.
Thank you Rosy and Andy for the jam and the Target gift card!! Yep, a Target gift card! Yep, I went straight to Target. I seriously contemplated buying this 70% off Oscar de la Renta water dish for Lucy. Then I realized she would probably use it as a swimming pool and I would be jealous because she can swim and I cannot.
I ended up not spending (all of) the gift card because I thought since it was to both Frank and I, I should wait til he got home from work or something? Just my generous heart at work.
Do you eat quinoa? Do you have any special recipes?
What fruits grow where you live?
Have you ever heard of loquat before?
