my sister brought back this shirt from her recent new york travels. it fit the bill for being perfectly lightweight and breezy, and i gladly welcome anything with animal prints. the zebras made me think of other animals, which made me think of safari, which made me think of cargo pants. so along with today's zebras and deer [antlers], i'll be dedicating the
week to wearing...animals.
a while ago i bought a box of quinoa because i heard it was a healthy alternative to say, rice. anyone who has cooked quinoa knows that the germ ring becomes visible as it separates from the seed. well, my
phobia weirdness about holes got the best of me when i saw all those rings in the pot. that was the first and last time i cooked quinoa...till this weekend. quinoa has been all the rage lately with the neighborhood moms, and after trying some of their salads recently, i decided to give it another go. my first batch included cucumbers, red pepers, red onions, olives, and feta cheese tossed with a dressing made of olive oil, red wine vinegar and dried oregano. the oregano was a bit strong for me, so i modified the second batch using just olive oil, red wine vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
have you tried quinoa? do you have any phobias?
