Having awakened to the call of the ‘wise owl’, I am launching into 2012 with my eyes focused on improved fitness and general health. Which for one point means that I am not consuming as many potato chips.
Quinoa is a wonderful grain added to my dietary agenda. I bought and down loaded a fantastic cook book all about Quinoa (thank you Wendy Polisi).

I have baked Quinoa cakes in muffin pan that turned out yummers! I modified my version from a combination of recipes found on an internet search. Adding curry, yellow bell peppers, onion, garlic, and shredded carrots, and Mrs. Cubbison’s herbed seasoned stuffing cubes (http://mrscubbisons.com/products/herb-seasoned-cube-stuffing.php) to the mixture resulted in a personally pleasing breakfast food.
I did toss together another Quinoa mixture to make roll-ups. The ingredients shown in the photograph below added to a package of frozen ultimate southwest blend http://www.birdseye.com/vegetable-products/cw-pure-simple-blends/ultimate-southwest-blend provided a great filling for roll-ups.
Having fun! And, as my sweet friend, Trudy says, “Enjoying the Ride”!
