This morning I took Olivia to play at the creek. We haven't had enough rain lately, so there's only a few inches of water. But she was perfectly content to splash around and shovel some sand into a bucket.
For dinner I made Thai quinoa salad. The recipe called for red quinoa, which I had not used before. I think it's slightly chewier and more substantial than regular quinoa. I loved this salad. The coconut, cashews and kale gave it a great variety of textures and the gingery dressing was to die for. Jackson the kale lover was also a big fan of this salad.
Along with the salad, I made spicy tamarind potatoes. So awesome. We all loved these potatoes, and they were so easy to prepare on the stovetop. The recipe calls for some rather exotic ingredients, but I subbed regular soy sauce for the Indonesian soy sauce, and brown sugar for the palm sugar, and it was still absolutely wonderful.
