Lately I have been in a recipe rut.
I either don't have the time, energy, or resources to cook something new.
But I really do love trying new recipes, so this week I was determined to make time, save my energy, and stock my fridge / pantry with the necessary ingredients.
First - these cinnamon quinoa bars.
Perfect for the leftover quinoa about to perish in my fridge.
These aren't for the faint of heart. Or should I say, if you don't like quinoa, you won't like these. However, if you do like quinoa, they are a perfectly portable healthy snack - that still need a little sweetening with fruit or the like.
I made this for dinner last night and everyone was a fan. Dan even added raisins to his.
Third - I made Ina peas (2 C peas and 1/2 C water pureed to oblivion)
I know that really doesn't count, but I take it where I can get it.
At 6.5 months she has now had (in this order) brown rice cereal, sweet potatoes, carrots, avocados, zucchini, squash, and peas.
And a taste of Blue Bell ice cream.
And a taste of tuna salad.
And a taste of pineapple, cashew, and shrimp fried rice.
Don't judge - it is very hard to say no to that face.
Have a blessed day! <3
