Quinoa “Fried Rice”

Quinoa-Fried-Rice

PROCRASTINATORS UNITE … tomorrow.

I am a master at finding other things to do when it comes to household chores. I usually go for the typical procrastination toolbox involving browsing the web and pinning. I also watch YouTube like it’s a sport. read novels at lightning speed, and can plow through a series on Netflix like nobody’s business. (Three seasons of Walking Dead in like 5 days!) But this week in particular I have been so lazy. Going on four days without going to get dishwasher detergent with a very full and dirty dishwasher -and sink for that matter- lazy. I guess my mantra lately is “it will get done” when it really needs to be “just do it”. I think a new goal should be define specific days to get chores done.

There are a few routine goals that I try and accomplish. Replace the cat litter, wash the sheets, fluff and fold the laundry that has inevitably been wrinkling in the dryer for days. One of the tasks that I actually enjoy is further messing up the kitchen making a big batch of Quinoa “Fried Rice”. I’m a pasta and rice loving girl and quinoa is my healthful go-to “grain” swap. (Grain Nutrition Comparison Here) It’s so perfect to have as a light lunch, snack, or side through out the week. Fried rice is one of the foods that I’ve always enjoyed and seen as a sort of takeout comfort food. But, by making it at home with quinoa, the update much healthier. Kind of a takeout done light … at home, I guess? It also gives me the ability to use up nearly any and all leftover meats and veggies before they go bad. (Cleaning out the fridge is another one to add to the list of chores I don’t make enough of a priority.)
