And, I have discovered a new grain, healthy, high in protein, and quick cooking- quinoa. I used it in a salad last weekend, and to my amazement EVERYONE- even the picky eaters- liked it. This weekend I decided to try something a little different. I mixed white and black quinoa, then after cooking it, mixed in blanched cauliflower and asparagus, grape tomatoes, and some sweet onion. I dressed it with olive oil and white wine vinegar and minced parsely. Yummy, and heakthy!!
Lest you think I haven't been in the studio- my piece for Tangled Textiles is done. I'm considering mounting it on a canvas or stretcher frames, but that is still in the thinking stage. I've got another tee cut out and ready to sew. And I'm starting to gather all my equipment for the one workshop I'm doing this year, a week with Carol Soderlund in Heber. I can't wait- one more week of work, then a week in the dyepots. I am planning to have my dye knowledge expanded exponentially!
