Grandmother’s Pantry – Q

What’s for supper? I tossed the question to a dozing grandmother as I strode to the pantry.

“Nothing.” She replied from her rocker.

“Are you sure?”

“Check the book.”

I pulled her favorite cookbook from the shelf and turned to the index. Oh, my! The “Q” portion of the index was short. What’s a person to do? Time was too short to prepare a Quiche. Not a Quince in the house.

Mumble, mumble. Got it!

I prepared a new-to-me grain –Quinoa.

Following directions (almost) I cooked it similar to rice and enjoyed the texture.

Hint from the dairy farmer’s daughter: Better with Butter.
