Whenever I have an upset stomach, I make this dish. It’s easy to make, as all ingredients are boiled and then tossed together.
I dread dinners. We usually have a salad in the evening, but I get bored with them after a few evenings. The other day, I had this fantastic idea of making a sandwich with chicken leftovers from a roasted chicken and fresh veggies. We had them for dinner for three or four evenings in the row, until I got bored. Again. But they’re still tasty!
I am trying to warm up to quinoa (with little success, so far). I got this recipe from the President’s Choice mobile app and used a bit less cheese than recommended. The recipe is fairly simple, and since the link is above, I won’t summarize it here. Suffice it to say you need quinoa, leeks, bell peppers, eggs and some cheese.
It’s been really difficult to update the blog lately. Way too much work, no time to sit down and write. Such is life… But tonight’s different and we’re having nachos with home made salsa and sour cream.
There’s not much to share, really. You need some really good tortilla chips – I like the organic (i.e, expensive…) ones from the organic aisle in Superstore. You’ll also need Mozzarella cheese – I buy the cheap, no name bar from Superstore. You’ll need sour cream, and the ingredients for the salsa: tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado, green onion, salt, pepper, fresh or dried cilantro, lemon.
Another easy to make side dish: peel, cut, throw into the oven and eat. It takes 10 minutes to prepare the veggies and around 45 minutes to bake in the oven. You can add pretty much whatever veggies are in season and you can play with the herbs. For extra flavor, add Feta cheese (here’s another version of this recipe).
I am not a big fan of quinoa, but I give it a try every now and then. It’s relatively easy to make and I like the cumin scented veggies. President’s Choice quinoa boxes come with the full recipe – worth giving it a try when you feel like eating healthy (and you ran out of ideas). I am not going to reproduce the recipe here since it’s photographed below.
