Group Recipe Project: Black Bean & Tomato Quinoa

Hola chicas! (if there is a chico out there hello to you too!) It's time for a new adventure!

But first...
Recap of last week's lovely recipe, the Apple Dumplings:
I made a few adjustments, I bought premade dough (gasp!) because I've been a sewing diva lately & needed to save time. I bought the "even flakier" dough from Whole Foods & it did not disappoint! I made them mini because, well, it's me. I also used walnuts instead of almonds. Chris had 5!! The dab of homemade whipped cream was the PERFECT touch!
We loved them.

I discovered this lovely recipe that I've chosen for our next group recipe!

Do you know why Quinoa is so fabulous for you? It's yummy and super duper healthy. See here for some lovely Quinoa facts.

Let's give ourselves 2 weeks for this one, hopefully you be able to try it!
Good luck! I hope it's yummy!

Also, I just tried this recipe tonight that I L.O.V.E.D.

Oh, and sad day for Mari. The buyer who bid on my lovely pillows backed out!
So, back on the market are these pretty little pillows. BRAND NEW.
18x18- set of 3. I paid $70 for them, but I'll sell them for the best offer.

K, we made the apple dumplings last week and they were delish! Ok, actually I didn't make them but Tori did and had us over. I got the best of both worlds. I'm excited for quinoa this week.
