Good 48º cloudy morning.
It DID rain yesterday. Just a smidgen though. Mo' rain predicted for Sunday. Natch.
Yesterday I infused olive oil with onion and one with garlic.
Reconstitute freeze dried garlic and freeze dried onion in hot water. Drain, dry well. Add to olive oil in a pot and heat to 200º. Turn off heat and let sit until cool. Drain the garlic/onion in a sieve with a coffee filter. Bottle.
Then I went back to Patty and Cliff's to work on their printer again. Still no luck. Frustrating.
I came home and put together a very healthy and tasty concoction. A great side dish. Or toss some cooked cubed steak in it or chicken or.... and make it a one dish meal.
Cook the rice blend. Cook the Quinoa. Drain and add black olives, sliced mushrooms, diced carrots, peas, diced beets, black-eyed peas, navy beans, and seasoned black beans. I also added in some of the reconstituted onion and garlic and a pinch of sea salt. To serve I heated it up in the micro and drizzled on a little olive oil .
