That's great, SB! Even if the quinoa says that it is "rinsed," I still rinse it well. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare quinoa (I substitute quinoa for the bulgur). I've made it with sweet potatoes, carrots, or winter squash. It is very filling and it is good warm, cold as a salad with a bit of EVOO added right before serving, or hot. I often make it for lunch on the weekends. I often eat the leftovers as a salad for lunch, but there is no reason why you couldn't nuke it and then put it in a thermos to eat it warm.

Had a good spaghetti sauce last night, one with lots of veggies in it, and bite-sized chunks of ground beef. Had it for breakfast this morning, on a slice of whole wheat toast, chased by a small glass of milk. I love left-over spaghetti sauce.

I'm waiting for the whole-wheat pasta to finish. I'm having a side of that this morning with my poached eggs and steamed green beans. I still have shoveling to do and figured some carbs probably are a good idea.

I changed my mind--did a light version of pasta carbonara, tossed the steamed beans in at the end. Whole wheat pasta takes less time to cook, but one could cook the pasta the evening before and just reheat it.

I want some of that, especially if they're yeast risen waffles!
