Quinoa Tabbouleh-esque Salad

I saw a quinoa tabbouleh salad posted on a website Ava visits and was inspired to create my own recipe, because I love tweaking recipes...

1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 large carrots
1 medium onion
1 large cucumber
2-3 small cloves of garlic
1 jar marinated artichoke hearts
The juice of one large lemon
olive oil (I free poured it but I'd guess 1/3 cup)
Black pepper to taste.

Cook the quinoa in 3 cups of water until it's tender and the water is absorbed. Let it cool.
Shred the carrots and garlic in your food processor.
Chop up the cucumber into small bite size pieces.
Chop the onion and drain the artichoke hearts and then either chop them or do like i do and break them into pieces using your fingers.
Squeeze the lemon juice into the veggies and add the oil.
Once the quinoa is cooled mix it all together and let it marinate overnight.

Yellow Squash, Red Potato and Onion Pancakes!

I love those nights when you make a meal that has everyone coming back for third helpings, this is one of them.
Ingredients are:
3 medium yellow squash
2 small onions
4 medium red potatoes

They are super easy and SUPER delicious! I grate everything together in my food processor and then put it in a big mixing bowl and add flour slowly until it's a pancake consistency.

Then fry them up in a little oil.

Then dig in!

This Week's Haul

I was running way behind picking up our share this week so by the time I got home I had no time to take a photo, sorry... I know it's boring without a photo.
This week we got: Swiss chard, red potatoes, onions, Italian parsley, a head of lettuce, cucumbers, yellow squash and patty pan squash, and French radishes.
Edited: I forgot to mention the sweet yellow plums, juicy ripe peaches, marinated mozzarella cheese (with basil and sundried tomatoes) and quart of blueberry smoothie!

Last night when I got home from picking up our share I made the swiss chard and red potato recipe I posted earlier in the blog for dinner. It was delicious as always.
