Quinoa Salad


Had a visit over the weekend with my friend Kevin who is the picture of health, and stole a peek at his lunch. I decided to make some version of his salad this week. So this is what I came up with:
- quinoa
- chopped tomatoes, cukes, yellow peppers
- olives and feta cheese
Mixed it with an olive oil vinaigrette and put it on a bed of baby lettuces from the garden. Another yummy summertime meal!

Dinner Planner for the Week of July 18th

We've been away and busy as often happens in the summertime. Consequently, I've not been planning out our meals, and so we haven't been eating as healthfully as I'd like. I'm trying to get back on the wagon, if only to make grocery shopping more pleasant and easy. Here's what we're planning to eat this week:

SUNDAY: Lunch - Tuna Caprese Salad (mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, tuna and basil);
Dinner - Big Salad a la Chez Gladines which means lots of lettuces, a fried egg and Roquefort cheese if you have it.
MONDAY: Stuffed Chicken breasts with asparagus and brown and wild rice on the side.
TUESDAY: Salmon on the BBQ and Greek Salad on the side.
WEDNESDAY: Quinoa salad with feta, grape tomatoes, olives and peppers and cukes.
THURSDAY: Make your Own Pizzas. We're having a choice of veggie bologna, capers, peppers, sundried tomatoes, asparagus, olives and lotsa mozzarella cheese
FRIDAY: Lamb sausages on the BBQ with warm lentil salad
SATURDAY: Lunch - Salmon or Crab Pockets;
