Meatless Monday: Greek Quinoa

R has just a few more days of school left, so we're counting the days until summer officially begins.'s coming fast.

In the summer, I love whipping up main dish salads early in the day that we can have for dinner.  That way, dinner is done and ready to go, if we choose to head to the park, playground or pool.  Also, who wants to cook in the heat of the afternoon?

For this coming week's Meatless Monday, try Greek Quinoa, the perfect make-ahead dinner salad.  This quinoa dish is fresh like early summer.  Bright, tart lemon flavors combine with the earthy Greek seasonings to create a beautiful marriage of tastes.

It looks beautiful, too:

Here's this week's Meatless Monday Grocery List:

1/2 cup packed fresh baby spinach
1 small cucumber
1 small red onion
1 bell pepper
1 lemon
1 clove garlic

1/2 cup pitted olives
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
quinoa (you will need about 3/4 cup to yield 2 cups cooked)

olive oil
dried oregano

Have a great rest of your weekend,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
