(with green onions and mint leaves)
Something I improvised on for supper the other night and it was GOOD!!! Fits well with my Theory of Deliciousness, too! 🙂
Just wanted to share a bit of a crazy concoction I improvised on for supper tonight. Use however much or little you like in your version of the recipe.
It’s really good, but I caution against eating too much. Quinoa is potent stuff! You’ll have a lot of energy without having to eat a lot. But at least it’s not like sugar high sort of energy overload or anything like that. If you’re doing anything like marathon training or needing lots of energy in food that tastes and is good, this is for you!
Yes, bacon is good for you. Accept that and your world will be better. 🙂
Recently, I ended up with a lot of full leaf spinach (the way they’re harvested), green onions and cilantro from a grocery trip. It was my first time getting such spinach for myself, usually getting them in pre-packaged bags without long stems. Summer abundance meant the bundles I bought, along with the green onions and cilantro, were also excessive, so I had a lot of vegetable stems on my hands all of a sudden. Not being one to waste food, I thought about what I could do with all these stems, since they weren’t generally appealing to me if they would have been used like the rest of the stock. I didn’t like the crunchy nature of the stems, and the green onion stems were just a bit odd in flavour for my liking. I usually eat the green onion stalks a bit into the white where it starts to bulge into the bulbs, but this batch had a lot of white before it bulged and I was going to challenge myself to eat a good portion of it rather than waste it.
After some thinking, stem soup was what I came up with.

This second entry in 2014 for songs I heard for the first time that I like a lot is Sha La La (Makes Me Happy) by Al Green.
Why do I like it? Just the groove it has, I would say. Appropriate with it being a 70s song from 1974. And that’s about it, to be honest. But it was groovy enough for me to add it to my list. 🙂
I hope you like it, too!
I was in a St Patrick’s Day Parade with Hal-Con, the Halifax Comic Con group. For it, I created this Star Trek, the Next Generation jacket.
It is triple layered with pant weight, fleece and broadcloth on the outside. The dark green was a fourth layer. As it turned out, I needed all the layers as it was -8 C during the parade! I put jeweled shamrock in place of the Trek insignia, and had pips on during the parade with pointed ears.
