I know you guys must have seen

It’s the weekend! So naturally I’m happy, I love my weekends. Weekends are what I live for.

Now as I sit here and write to you, trying to pour my heart out to you, I am basically forced to listen to Geddy Lee. The hand model’s birthday was a couple weeks ago and being the awesome wife that I am, I got him what he wanted, cause I’m just great that way. He wanted a turntable, so I got him a pretty good one. Well of course this was not the end of it. We did not have any records anymore, so he did his research and found out this big store in Calgary called Record Land and on his birthday we went there and got some records. This place is huge, and you have rows of records from floor to ceiling. I was almost claustrophobic in there, but I patiently waited while he looked around and picked out some records Video.

Again that was not the end of that. Now on weekends and sometimes at night, he’ll go to his man cave, a.k.a. the basement and play some records. He even went as far as building a crate to store the records in. I have to admit the crate looks pretty good. But this is not the problem. The problem is the music. It’s all 80’s music. Now I’m an 80’s child (sort of) and I love 80’s music as well, but Geddy Lee? Or Depeche Mode? I mean I loved Depeche Mode in the 80’s, but I’m over it. Or heavy metal music, OMG! I’m such an awesome wife that I once even went to an Iron Maiden concert with him. Well that was an experience I’ll never forget.

But here’s the deal, you guys. Let’s forget about music and focus on potatoes. I love my potatoes. Any kind of potatoes, baked, roasted, fried, smashed, mashed, any way you can think of cooking potatoes, I’m there. So as you can imagine whenever I find another new way of cooking potatoes, I’m all over it YOOX hk.

Now I know you guys must have seen these potatoes all over the world wide web, so maybe I’m a little slow here, but I’ve never made these puppies before until now. I’ve been meaning to, don’t get me wrong, but just never made them. So while looking around the web and trying to figure out which version to make, I decided to go with the blogging queen’s version, the pioneer woman.

As usual, I have not met a potato I haven’t liked before, and these potatoes were fabulous and we loved them. They were gone as fast as I was done taking pictures. So if you love your starchy potatoes, then you might want to add this to your repertoire of recipes YOOX hk.


I bet red quinoa would look really pretty

So here I am with another salad recipe again and you might be wondering what’s wrong with me. Where are all the baked goods and desserts? But bear with me here and hear me out. This salad is fabulous! It’s Ah-Mazing!!! It’s out of this world, it’s that good!

And being on my forever quest to get my husband to eat more quinoa, I thought this salad was very appropriate for our dinner tonight. To him, just the thought of quinoa puts him off and would rather not eat a thing. So, as usual, I try and find creative and delicious ways to hide/camouflage quinoa in salads, casseroles, or whatever.

But sometimes I’m not too successful in hiding the quinoa and as he was putzing around the kitchen tonight and saw me cooking quinoa, I saw his face change and the color in his face fade away. And with a very disappointed face he mumbled “I know I said I wanted to eat healthier food, but I meant eat one sausage instead of 2.” And off to his man cave he disappeared.

Luckily, I don’t always listen to him, so I continued on with my mission to make this salad super delicious contrary to the mumbles and grumbles I was receiving.

But let’s be real here. How can this salad not be delicious. Let’s check out some of the ingredients. Mangos! I love a good mango. And I had the perfect ripe mango. Shredded coconut, raisins, slivered almonds, edamame!

Now I used parsley here, mostly because I’m not a huge fan of cilantro, and secondly because I didn’t have any cilantro. But I’m pretty sure cilantro would be great in this salad, so if you have it, please use it. I also used gold and black quinoa here, but any kind of quinoa would work. I bet red quinoa would look really pretty too.

Look at all those gorgeous colors. I for one am in love with this salad and am super excited that I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

And by the way, even the grumpy hubs had some and said that, while it was good, he felt his arteries clear up as he was eating it, that’s how healthy it was. You know what? I’ll take that as a compliment!
