I showed up at Trader Joe’s yesterday desperate for a good idea. A dear friend was coming over for dinner in a mere two hours, and I needed something yummy to make. But I’m not a very creative or intuitive cook.
Suddenly I remembered an old trick from my post-college days. I looked for a recipe written on the back of one of the boxes. My reasoning: the corporations really want to sell their products! So of course they are going to put the yummiest recipe on their boxes.
The Red Quinoa called me, and voilà: I found a recipe for Black Bean, Roasted Corn & Avocado Salad on a Bed of Red Quinoa.
I made it. It was delicious. My guests were impressed. And I’m now armed with a fabulous recipe for the next time I’m invited to a dreaded potluck!
If you are wondering what Red Quinoa salads have to do with academic coaching or Interplay: nothing whatsoever. I just thought my plate looked pretty and I felt proud of my new recipe. I wanted to share.
