I whipped up a batch of quinoa today in hopes of eating it over the next couple days. I already used it twice today!
First, I made a quinoa-egg-scramble.
Non-Recipe: I basically did a sloppy scramble (click for info) on 2 local, cage-free eggs (1 for me, 1 for hubby) and added some cooked organic, red quinoa (an estimated amount for 2 people) at the end of cooking. I also mixed in salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and fresh parsley, plus a wee bit of EVOO.
It was really so simple and very tasty! It reminded me of a messier version of my quinoa egg bowl.
The quinoa-egg-scramble went well with some more of that quick cinnamon streusel coffeecake.
Even though I was home, I was really busy with work today. I didn’t get much of a lunch break, so I threw some quick things together – a TJ’s frozen corn dog, frozen organic peas, and a quick hot quinoa salad.
This is why I love quinoa – it’s so versatile! With a tweak of the mixins and seasonings, quinoa can take on a whole new form. For my quinoa salad, I mixed in salt, pepper, fresh parsley, EVOO and lemon juice. Not much different from breakfast, but totally new flavor profile thanks to the lemon!
After lunch, I was back hard at work. Phew! Then, it was time for Mexican out and then to a friend’s place to look at furniture.
I had a couple people tell me on Facebook (click to view) that they are DONE with Christmas shopping already. Whoa! How is your holiday shopping coming?

It must feel nice being able to work from home though I’m not sure I would have the motivation to complete work and instead do stuff around my house. I know you work in an office, but have you ever shared what it is that you actually do or what type of company you work for? Just curious. As for Christmas shopping, not near done only have a few gifts for nieces/nephews so far.
I’m an IT Consultant 🙂

You are seriously on top of things. Nice work! When did you wrap your presents?
I have everything, except for something for my dog, purchased and wrapped! I just finished up the bulk of it all last night.
That’s awesome Jessie! I can’t believe you wrapped it too…nice job! 🙂
I love the light fluffy texture of quinoa! I use it all the time instead of rice and just eat it by itself as well.
I’m all done with my Christmas shopping! I love getting everything done ahead of time!
Another early shopper. I think you guys are on to something! 😉
I just point and clicked and finished my shopping today. I love Amazon.com. 🙂
I think I need to do more internet shopping next year. 🙂
Done Christmas shopping? I haven’t even started! :/
The scramble looks delicious!
Wow, people impress me with how quickly they get through Christmas shopping.
I am about half way through, but saving most of my purchases until I fly home from SoCal to Minnesota.
Done and wrapped weeks ago!
You go girl! 🙂
