Our fridge shut down and decided to break, so we had to take everything out, and put it in coolers, and bring some stuff to our neighbours house. Annoying right? So I haven't had that many options for supper, and I've had to cook everything myself.
So I saw quinoa in the pantry, and decided to make it, and promptly went to the fridge to get some sauce. Well, imagine my chagrin when I realized that it was empty. Having to forgo a dressing, I thought I'd make a fruity quinoa supper, so I went outside (in the freezing cold) and brought in some pineapple and an apple.
I figured I'd make some garlic bread while I was at it, and threw in some basil.
