Check out my wonderful house guest!
Megan is staying with me for a few nights. And in exchange for a comfy bed, she decided to make me the most delicious dinner ever.
Actually, this dinner is a simplified version of a dish from Veganomicon, an amazing cookbook that I absolutely LOVE and recommend.
Megan posted the step-by-step instructions on her blog. This quinoa dish is basically a healthy version of sweet-and-sour.
In the mix:
Quinoa (boiled in pineapple juice)
This was very, very good. I think prepping the quinoa in the pineapple juice is key. We made a huge double batch, and I suspect it will only get better the longer it sits in the fridge.
And we actually ate dessert before dinner. We went to Trade Joeâ€™s to buy ingredients and came across the taste-test bar, where they were serving up cookies and ice cream. But alas â€“ only ONE was left!
Never fear â€“ the sweet employee made us three more samples each. Gotta love Trader Joeâ€™s.
Time for some TV with my buddy. And nail paintinâ€™. Grown-up sleepover!
