Quinoa and other discoveries

Sunday, September 09, 2012

I tried quinoa today. I made a salad with quinoa, cauliflower, cucumbers, tomatoes, and black olives. I couldn't find the Italian dressing I wanted so I used a balsamic vinaigrette. Not bad. I was aiming for something similar to the Italian pasta salad and have to say it was a good try.

After a night of not being able to sleep well thanks to the ragweed and leaves I am in a surprisingly good mood. Actually, it may have something to do with the brand new inhaler I got today. Stronger than the old one since it was just opened. Got me a little buzzed up.

While at the drugstore I found some water bottles with a filter. My husband will go through two 12 packs of pop a week if I let him. That's ridiculous, so I got him one of the bottles. He already tried it out.

Thinking of what to do after this week for my walks. I know of another set of trails that seems to be quite popular. It seems that with so many people using it, it should be safe. Plus it's on my way home. Of course I have my DVDs as well, so there's no excuse. I just like the trails this time of year.

Oh, and I'm really happy the Green Bay Packers lost their first game of the season. Not a good day for most here in Packerland, but I love it! Can't wait for the game against Chicago on Thursday. And I don't know anything about football.

    I'm glad you have a few other alternatives planned for your workouts. What about walking inside somewhere when the snow falls?

    Any reason in particular you're against the Pack? I moved to MN and still will root for the Packers over the Vikings any day!

    Your salad sounds kind of tasty Ill have to try that. I wish I was able to get out on some trails, I love fall and this is the best time for hiking because its cooler. I don't know anything about football but I'm also very excited for a upcoming game my friends husband just started playing for Southern VT Storm so I'm going to go watch them play in a game in Mass later this month. Happy walking!!!
