following up.. and quinoa.

A fellow Clevey posted this link about plastic bags to a website called Unclutterer. There are many great comments there, and great information. I thought this was particularly interesting -

Incorporating at least one reuseable bag into your lifestyle for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags.

Depending on the size, the average reuseable bag can hold the contents of 2 to 3 plastic grocery bags.

So... quinoa.

I was looking around for recipes to use up the quinoa I bought at Trader Joe's a while back, and found this one for Bacon Wrapped Scallops with Jalapeno Papaya Sauce. Sounds indulgent, right? I'm not quite brave enough to try it just yet, but will keep it on the back burner for future reference. In the mean time, I'll keep looking. I remember seeing one once involving honey and soy milk as a breakfast belly warming treat, so I'm going to have to find that! To be continued...

OK, so you've convinced me to keep an eye out for a decent reusable bag. :) I've never cooked with quinoa. The grocery stores down here in the south are a bit lacking in things other than your basics. Makes it hard to cook fun things.
