Not My Best Idea
May 3, 2010 § Leave a Comment
Cooking on the hottest day of the year (so far) wasn’t one of my better ideas. I’m so hot right now I kind of feel like crying. And this hot laptop isn’t helping, so this shall be an unusually brief post. Hallelujah, right?
For dinner I made Heidi Swanson’s Double Broccoli Quinoa recipe. I’m just going to link to the recipe here rather than copying it. I’ve been wanting to make it for a while and tonight was the night. It was good, I enjoyed it, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it more when I’m not wiping sweat from my brow between forkfuls. I was intrigued by making a pesto with broccoli instead of basil. There’s some pesto left over and I’m looking forward to spreading it on a tomato sandwich tomorrow for lunch. Or tossing it with pasta. Or mixing it in scrambled eggs…it won’t go to waste, that’s for sure.
As Heidi suggested, I topped the dish with feta cheese, avocado and toasted sliced almonds. I skipped the fire oil since, as I may have mentioned, I was already HOT. Possibly melting. In my humble opinion, the toppings are mandatory rather than optional. They’re so good, and, of course, a nutritional boost to boot. (How many commas can I use in a sentence? I am the worst comma user in the world. My middle name should be Splice.)
Anyway, here’s a picture. I have to go now because I’m, you know…
I hope you had a nice weekend~
