Where do you find Quinoa?

Silly me. I should have elaborated a little more. I was worried the post was getting too long. :-)I have browsed our local grocer's and have not found it there. How sad they don't know this great secret! :-) So, you are better off going to your local "health food" store. We are graced with the presences of E*arth Fare and Wh*le Foods in these parts. Both places carry quinoa in bulk or by the box. A small box runs under $3.00 and measures 2 cups uncooked. This stuff puffs up QUITE a bit when its cooked. It swells like crazy. Its easier than cooking rice! I hope all of you who commented will enjoy this. Since this was the most common question I thought it would be easier to just post again! Happy Wednesday to you!

Thanks for giving us further details. I'll let you know when I actually make this (I have to buy quinoa first). Also, thank your friend for passing along this recipe. I can't wait to print your version out:).
BTW - I was pronouncing quinoa, phonetically. Boy, I was way off! Thanks for letting us know the correct way to pronounce it:).

I'll have to tell Jenny that I have seen quinoa sold at Meijer. It's in box form. Of course, I have never tried the stuff and am going to have to go buy a box.

The photo of Jonas next to your ticker is so cute:). The face he is making is great! He looks like a fun little guy. I can only imagine that you and your husband laugh at all the funny things he does quite often. Adorable!

Thanks Rachel!
Jonas is becoming more and more fun as the days pass. I'm loving this opportunity to see all his development and new firsts.
