Made a salad of quinoa to go with dinner tonight. Greek Quinoa Salad with Feta. I loved it. Quinoa is really easy to prepare and it is so cool looking after it is cooked. Little pellets. So cute! I forgot to add the olives :( and added ricotta salata instead of the feta cheese. I ate more to this than the boneless ribs we made on the grill. Found a site that gives a nice history of Quinoa, All About Quinoa.

For lunch today I had a wrap made from some meat my neighbor Kim made last night. It was so good. I asked her if for the recipe and she sent it over. I had it with some lettuce and American cheese.
Here is her recipe -

one really big slab of beef brisket(or 2 smaller ones)
4-5 big onions
1 jar of chili sauce(any) 1 jar barbeque sauce 1/2 cup honey

slice onions horizontally..lay on bottom of glass or nonstick pan
lay brisket on top of onions(fat side up)

mix sauce ingredients...pour on top of brisket

Cover...very tightly with foil..

cook on 350 for 4 hours

cut off fat from top..use sauce in pan

Thanks Kim!

Also yesterday I made Blueberry Sunshine
Scones from the My Little Space blog. I did not have self rising flour so I added a tablespoon of baking powder to the all purpose flour. Very nice scones.
