Just a quickie to reassure you that I am still here and still doing well. I am just tired as hell and lack the imagination to come up with an entry today. I have this big list of Things To Write About On Dietgirl but I cannae be arsed today!
I went to the gym three times last week and ate very well so it's all going very well. Feeling very motivated in that department. It's just the rest of my life I'm ever so slightly stressed about. The Future and other family thingies. It's just over four tiny wee months now til I get booted out of Britain. I am starting to get antsy. Tearful goodbyes or trying to organise a wedding in a week? Who knows?
So, anyway. Until I feel more energetic here's a small list of Things To Do With Quinoa.
Cook half a cup or so in water or vegetable stock according to the packet directions then toss with any of these combinations:
- Diced cucumber, diced spanish (red) onion and crumbled feta cheese
- Oven-roasted mushrooms, chunks of butternut squash (pumpkin) and zucchini (courgette), topping with a tiny sprinkle of parmesan if you're game
- Steamed broccoli florets, chopped cooked chicken breast, dollop of green pesto and juice of half a lemon
- Oven-roasted onions, green and red peppers and cherry tomatoes plus a handful of black olives
All good served hot or cold, always add heaps of freshly ground black pepper.
Oh! Almost forgot. A few people asked if the Scottish Companion discovered the site after I just about flashed it in his face. It seems he has not, bless his daydreamy unobservant soul!
