    I love quinoa and eat it almost every day. I think it has a great flavor and I love the texture. But I have had it cooked by others and it's often overcooked. I think different brands can taste different too. I cook mine in a microwave rice cooker with salt, pepper, basil, and a wee bit of olive oil. I eat it plain or add it to things. 

    I had lunch at the senior center today - baked fish, broccoli, rice pilaf, a nice roll, and an orange.

    My boss just handed me a gorgeous wedge of brie so for lunch I'm going to melt some of that on some Ritz crackers with sliced pears.

    Using the 2 ingredient dough recipe that is the bomb (greek yogurt and self rising flour) I made pizza, bagels, cinnamon bread sticks, and garlic knots for the freezer. And had 1 of each for lunch. : )

    I had falafel with salad on Turkish bread. Very dry as I had no sauce.
    Jeepy - they look delish, what's the recipe for the dough?

  • jeepcurlygurljeepcurlygurl Posts: 20,727Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Virtuoso
    @Starmie ; I looked at a bunch of different versions online and put together this one. I made my own self rising flour and it worked perfectly.

    2 Ingredient Dough

    1 cup Greek Yogurt
    1 ½ cups self-rising flour (If you do not have self-rising flour, you can substitute: 1 ½ cups flour, 1 ½ tsp baking powder, and ¾ tsp salt)
    In a large bowl mix yogurt and flour.  Flip out onto a well floured surface and knead a few times, adding some flour if needed.

    Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes. Check after 10 min as dough can brown quickly.

    Pizza –Makes 2 medium or 1 large pizza.  Roll out or press and shape with hands, transfer to greased baking sheet, brush with olive oil and add toppings. 

    Garlic Bread Sticks or knots – Cut dough in 6-8 pieces, shape into bread sticks or knots, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic powder, herbs.

    Cinnamon Sugar Bread Sticks - Cut dough in 6-8 pieces, shape into bread sticks, brush with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. 

    Bagels - Cut dough in 6 pieces, shape into logs then rings, brush with beaten egg, sprinkle with choice of seasonings.

    Supper, then lunch tomorrow. Grandma's infamous chicken noodle soup. Every body has the flu except me, so I've been cooking it all afternoon. Full of fresh ingredients & herbs, it oughta get them on the mend.
  • LotsawavesLotsawaves Posts: 9,777Registered Users Curl Virtuoso
    Jeep that is a great recipe.  I know a lot of us are trying to cut carbs, but this is a great recipe when we want to do a splurge day.  I'm not a big pizza eater, but the bagels look really good.  I will definitely try this and thanks for the tip for self rising flour.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
  • jeepcurlygurljeepcurlygurl Posts: 20,727Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Virtuoso
    @Lotsawaves ; One of the great things about this recipe is that you can cut down the recipe and make just 1 bagel or a couple bread sticks at a time if you just have a hankering for some carbs but want to watch your portions.

    Thanks Jeepy. We eat a lot of pizza in our house and to my mind, the base I make is always a bit lacking in something though everyone else likes it. I like the fact that this one browns quickly, quite often mine look a bit anaemic but the toppings are well and truly cooked. Am going to try this this week.

    And I love my carbs so those cinnamon sticks look perfect!

    Went to visit my aunt in the hospital and went down to eat lunch at the coffee shop that I worked at 42 years ago. I had a delicious hamburger (even tho the giant old grill is gone).

    @Starmie Back to the cheese salad. Do you mix all that up before you put it on the bread? Or just layer the items on the bread? 
    Not sure about in Aus but in Ireland, it's just a slice of cheese (not a cheese single), a slice of onion, a slice of tomato and a leaf of lettuce. Not sure if I've ever had it w/ a slice of cucumber. Now a slice of avocado is popular with it, too.
