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.
