I bought a box of red quinoa from Wegmans a few months ago and had been searching for recipe ideas. I found a few I was thinking of trying, and then I was like SCREW IT! I'm going to experiment! ...which is what I did.
YUM! I made a Blueberry Quinoa Bake. I posted the recipe on Fit Foodie:
(I also have another new post below that one - Weight Loss Myths & Truths)
Boyfriend requested Vegetable Lasagna for dinner last night, to which I replied, "Sure, why not!" I had never made lasagna, so I had NO IDEA that it would take FOR-FREAKING-EVER between boiling the noodles, prepping the veggies and assembling the entire thing, AND make a million dishes. The entire time, I kept telling him, "YOU BETTER LIKE THIS LASAGNA, OR ELSE I'M NEVER MAKING DINNER FOR YOU AGAIN." But it was worth all of the work because it was ahhhhhh-mazing. Boyfriend inhaled it, had seconds and kept saying, "THIS IS SO GOOD" so I gave myself a well-deserved pat on the back.
No recipe for this one, although I could one together if y'all want me to. I used whole wheat lasagna noodles, I made my own homemade sauce (nothing better than homemade marinara), I used broccoli, kale, mushrooms and red and green bell peppers, and of course (whole milk) mozzarella and (reduced fat) ricotta cheese.
All in all, yesterday was a good day for new attempts at cooking!
