About Today

Do you ever loop a song over and over again? I think my neighbors may want to throw a brick at my record player. The song is that good. So I will loop once more…and then again…and again.

As I listen, I am enjoying a glass of Firesteed Pinot Noir. It is a perfect wine for the concluding days of July. As we embark into August, I will enjoy many more glasses of this wine. As for a meal, I would like to share my new favorite recipe. (See below)

Now you can loop The National, let them serenade you, sip your favorite summer red, and enjoy a nourishing meal. My favorite place to enjoy is on my patio. My antique red table was once my grandmother’s. The scene is rustic, simple, and elegant.¬†Divertiti!

Pesto Quinoa with Avocado and Mixed Greens



1/4 Cup Quinoa

2 Tablespoons Pesto

1 Avocado

Mixed Greens

Salt & Pepper


Wash and drain the quinoa. Add 1/2 Cup water to the pot. Bring to a boil, cover with lid, and simmer until translucent. About 10-12 minutes. Add pesto. Mix thoroughly. Plate over mixed greens. Add sliced avocado. Garnish with salt and pepper.

Note: The measurements are forgiving. May increase or decrease ingredient amounts to suit individual tastes and appetites. Try adding sliced almonds for an added crunch or shredded chicken breast for a heartier plate.
