Quinoa Cooking Trick

Happy Weekend, everyone! I am massively busy with homework this weekend, but I wanted to check in and let you in on my latest discovery.

Yes, it looks like your typical throw together meal. And it is. BUT. The preparation was a liiiiittle bit different this time. And guess what? It’s a time saver!

Typically, directions for quinoa have you put the quinoa and water in a pot, bring to a boil, then put on low heat (covered) for about 15 minutes. Well- here’s what I did. I tossed the quinoa and water in the pot. While I was waiting for it to come to a boil, I diced up some yellow pepper and zucchini. As soon as it was time to cover the pot and bring to low heat- I tossed the veggies in the pot. That way, the veggies would steam while the quinoa was still cooking. 

Seriously, I’m a genius.

About a minute before it was ready, I threw in some pasta sauce my dad made from scratch last week.


Meal= delicious.

At some point in the day, I also took Layla for a walk. And in typical fashion, these are the photos I got:




Oh, and this also happened last night:


We had a party. A party of 2. I also got obsessed with Sons of Anarchy. Booze and bikers. Good Friday night.
