The cold weather had me making lots of different soups. Making and trying out different soups is a fun experience during the cold months of winter; face it there's nothing better to do. Soup is a great meal that is really good for stretching the dollar; you usually get more than one meal out of a pot of soup.
For February club I made some red velvet cupcakes with creamy vanilla frosting. The recipe came from my Magnolia Bakery book. It was a lengthy and detailed process but I was very happy with the results.
If you don't what Quinoa is you're missing out. Quinoa is pronounced KEEN-wah. It's a grain that is full of protein. It can be used as an alternative to rice in any meal.
Tonight I roasted asparagus, red potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, & parsnips at 400 degrees for 40-50 mins. I coated the vegetables with olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme. I cooked the quinoa as directed on the package. After the vegetables and quinoa were cooked I tossed and coated with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
