it's a bird, it's a plane. .

anybody know what this is?
it starts with a Q. . quinoa! pronounced: keen-wah.
a sweet friend gave me a bunch to cook, and after detailed instructions,
i gave it a try.
it is delicious. filled with fresh lime juice, fresh veggies,
a little spice, a little mustard. . yum.
neat things about this little grain? it is a complete protein source,
gluten-free for easy digestion, and the Incas in South America
actually referred to quinoa as 'the mother of all grains'.
how bout that.
and it's really pretty, too!
