I made this really good Quinoa pasta salad. I added a little olive oil some chopped olives, tomatoes, Italian parsley and salt and pepper. Then I had some extra caramelized onions and added that in for good measure. Boy was is good. I am already thinking of all the neat flavor combos I can do with this pasta.

My friend Lisa is also going gf and shared this wonderful harvest muffin recipe. I made the muffins this weekend and my kids and hubby raved about them. They were really moist and tender and the recipe made a lot. I think this would also be good with some raisins or cranberries added in or even some chopped candied ginger. This would make a great after school snack.
