Fresh Fridays : Quinoa Mix Sandwich

Happy Friday. It has been a few weeks since I have shared some sealaura attempts at "cooking".
Well dolls, I have a new friend and her name is Quinoa. Apparently "she" is a staple in South America, I did not know this but in my defense I am from Central America! I wanted to try it because of it's high protein value and because my diet of brown rice and whatever protein was getting very aburrido/boring! Good news : It is awesome!! You must try it.
It is easy to make, pretty much boil water and pour and let it poof ( do check your box for directions) and one thing I do know how to do is boil water so it is a perfect sealaura ingredient. Now, thanks to simpledaisy I have learned to be a little more creative en la cocina so what I did was add some salmon, a teeny tiny bit of mayo and avocado and mixed it in a bowl.
I used some TJ sourdough bread and I was surprised how yummy this concoction was. To tell you the truth I really wanted to run to Chipotle and eat a burrito but in an effort to save dinero and eat what I have, I actually made something edible.

Never tried it but since you were brave enough to give it a go then I'll try it too! Always looking for healthy options.

Have a beachy weekend!

It looks good to me.
PS. Did you know I want to be from Central America? Panama in particular.

Laura, I am so glad you are blogging every day now! Not that teaching isn't important, too!

I had forgotten about quinoa. Back on the shopping list it goes!
