Dinner two nights this week included a quinoa salad I’ve been experimenting with. It will be featured on a Fusion NW TV show soon. We filmed it in our kitchen on Wednesday morning and talked about three easy grains to cook. These grains are good to eat while transitioning away from white rice and white pasta. The quinoa salad has shrimp in it and makes a satisfying meal.
Having the big TV lights in my house always makes me cringe a little. When those things get turned on, they highlight all of the cobwebs that come with old houses! I suppose that’s why we haven’t added additional lighting to our kitchen.

Sunday was Easter and my son made egg salad sandwiches with the eggs we colored on Saturday. Our big meal was at brunch and we enjoyed sandwiches made with fresh eggs from our backyard chickens, ham slices, cheese, and biscuits. The biscuits are from Trader Joe’s and I love their biscuits that open the “pop” of the canister. 8 come in a package and it’s an indulgence at our house – Easter only type thing. There’s no way I can make my biscuits taste the same! We had fresh pineapple, too. My daughter made the brunch on Easter Sunday. She was scheduled to make dinner earlier in the week but was too busy to fit it in.
