|It got stormy when we were ready to leave.|
So we got home late Saturday and I've been in workshops for school for the last three days.
All together now - no cooking being done.
That's not entirely true, but I doubt anyone really wants recipes for hamburgers and gravy which is my dear husband's Monday staple.
But good news - this workshop I've been attending - they're giving us really good food!
I wish I'd thought to take a photo before eating yesterday, but I think the recipe is easy enough to figure out.
They had salads, including a delicious pasta salad with olives, sandwiches, and wraps. The wrap is my focus.
Quinoa, Couscous and Corn with a bit of cilantro and dried cranberries. All wrapped together.
I didn't eat much of the wrap itself, it was nothing special. But the inside was delicious. On a brutally hot day here, the chilled couscous, corn and quinoa mix was perfect. The corn gave it a little crunch, the grains were filling, and the sprinkling of dried cranberries was just the right touch of sweetness.
My only complaint was the cilantro - too strong.
I was hoping we'd get the same lunch today so I could figure out if there was any dressing, but we got a salad instead.
I did remember to take a photo.
Quinoa, Couscous, tomatoes, cucumbers, and mint on a bed of spinach.
Refreshing and light on a hot day!
And just for fun since there is corn in the first recipe - my neighborhood "corn field" is thriving.

Confession time - I'm not a huge fan of the taste of quinoa, but mixed with the couscous it was delicious.
How's your summer going?
