Wow, I am on a ‘cooking something healthy’ for dinner kick lately (by this I mean I made a healthy dinner once last week and once this week. A new record).
I call this Janae’s Refrigerator Quinoa and if you ever do make this I have copyrighted it so you have to use the proper name when referring to it. I cooked quinoa in the rice cooker and then added a baked sweet potato and some sautéed mushrooms, cabbage, spinach and asparagus. I let that chill for a few hours and then added walnuts, feta and cranberries right before serving it.
I was going to get all technical and make my own sauce for it but then I remember that I love dressing. Especially this dressing, on everything.
After dinner Brooke and I went on over to a baby shower for my good friend.
The below picture was taken approximately 100 minutes past Brooke’s bedtime. She fell asleep the second I buckled her in her carseat.
Oh the food. The food was really good and all homemade. The lemon meringue thing was amazing and I think I had just a few of those ‘slivers’ of chocolate mint brownies.
Hopefully those mint brownies fuel my speed workout this morning….
I have a feeling my next post will be titled: Don’t eat ridiculous amounts of brownies the night before a hard workout unless you want to be cruel to yourself.
Last ‘healthy’ dinner that you made? I need ideas if I am going to be keeping this streak up.
Speaking of streaks… who is doing a running streak right now? The Runner’s World Summer Run 2013 Streak?
Is there any type of dessert that you DON’T like?
-Pecan pie and brownies with nuts in them (I’ll still eat them but I don’t like them). Billy doesn’t like banana splits. I know, weird.
