Quinoa Pizza Bake

Today was a busy day full of good food and great people. Once I get all the photos and my thoughts together, I will definitely share. I woke up at 5:50am, worked out, cut Max's hair for his day of being in front of the camera, got everyone showered and fed...and we were out the door. Since it was a day out, I decided on an easy dinner tonight.  It was raining this afternoon and since it was a busy day, we all wanted something hot for dinner. So, it was a pasta bake for the boys and a quinoa bake for me!

I used to love eating pasta, but I think I ate too much of it and am now kind of over it.  I LOVE quinoa!  It works so well like this too, plus I get a great dose of protein!  This bowl was loaded with cooked quinoa, peppers, onions, cauliflower, pasta sauce and covered in Daiya.  After I mixed it all together and topped it, I broiled it to melt up the cheesy topping.  Perfect!

Now, I am off to watch the illustrator's chosen movie about something post apocalyptic...should be really uplifting (note sarcasm). Don't get me wrong, I love post apocalyptic, just not in the mood tonight. Let's just say I could use something a little more "fun".

Oh, and if you are in to art or do anything in a creative field, he wrote a great post today about style. I can totally relate to it with food and cooking styles too.

Have a great weekend!
