Quinoa with Peas, onion, and Parmesan Cheese

So I made this with dinner last night.. it was really good, but as I'm sure you noticed, the peas and onions are crossed out- that's because I wound up not having peas OR onions and sheer laziness prevented me from going to the store that I live right up the block from... oh well, it was still really good!

1 Cup Quinoa
2 Cups low/no sodium Chicken Broth
1/2 Tsp. Butter (you really don't even need that much!)
1 Medium onion, diced (what I would've used, had I went out and gotten an onion)
1 Small Can of NO-SALT ADDED Peas (or about 3/4 cup of frozen peas)
2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
Pepper to taste
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
Parsley as garnish

1. Melt butter in pan
2. Add Quinoa and toast until browned
3. Add Broth, garlic, and onion and bring to a boil
4. Reduce to medium heat- at this point if you are using frozen peas add them now (if using canned peas wait 5 minutes then add otherwise they'll get too soft)
5. Once all of the broth has been absorbed (about 15-20 minutes) remove from heat and add parmesan cheese
6. Sprinkle a little parsley on top as a nice presentation
7. Serve as a side dish and ENJOY!

Another great thing to add to this would be ground chicken (as a main course, of course- hehe). Cook them both separately and combine at the end. I've also made a similar dish with chopped up low sodium ham (but I'll save that for another post ;) )

If at first you don't succeed...

Boyfriend asked me if I wanted to go out last night- of course i said yes- but that also meant that I quickly had to put together an outfit. I tried this outfit with the pink belt and after taking a few pictures, I realized that the shoes didn't look right. Next i tried the cognac belt and shoes... I liked this one much better! I lost a lot of sunlight switching outfits though.

My ONLY drawback to this shirt is that it gets very staticy.. I'll just have to wear it on a humid day (hehe).

What do you guys do if your clothing is very static prone?

 Maybe with different shoes this would look better but they're more dressy.. stay tuned, you may see this again! ;)
