I’m not gonna lie, cutting this red onion was pretty brutal…I looked like I had been crying for days, but I powered through :)

Once my herbs grow a little bit more, I would like to incorporate fresh oregano and basil, but for now this will do.

I just hand squeeze the lemon…one of my friends used her citrus press and she said it was a bit too lemony.

When I get home I cook the quinoa, which takes about 10 minutes and then it’s ready to go!  Such an easy recipe that is packed full of flavor…and makes my hectic life a little easier :)
