veggie and quinoa bake

dear readers,
i’ve failed.

i used to be a terrible cook, like really really REALLY bad, and have made such strides since getting married.
but last night my quinoa veggie bake sent me back to square one.
^^^ is the recipe i used last night
my quinoa veggie bake looked nothing like that 😦
this was my first time cooking with quinoa and i don’t think i cooked it long enough which ultimately lead to my dish’s demise.

quinoa 2after laying down my quinoa to make a crust, i topped it with a  mix of eggs, cut up tomatoes/green peppers/onions and added salt and pepper
quinoathe end result!

like i said, i don’t think i cooked my quinoa long enough because it was still a little water-y when i poured it into the 9×13 pan so it didn’t really make a crust. that aside, the dish really didn’t have much flavor! i should have added much more salt and pepper or experienced with different spices. j is really good at that! i’ll have to ask for his help next time.

i took a few bites of this and then moved on to the ice cream sandwich that i made my dinner.
yesterday was so a monday!

what did you do for dinner last night?
was your recipe a success?
hope so!

it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
