Dish-A-Day: 09/29/2012 - Quinoa Upma

Prologue: Go here.

09/29/2012: Quinoa Upma - After a week's sickness I finally could refresh, have shower, clean the house, change sheets and make myself feel a human. However, all that drained away the little energy that I had left. To boost it back up and also not to strain further made this Upma with Quinoa. Serves two purposes: Increases strength with a little of this Upma and also not too much strain to cook. Good thing I made a little more cause when a friend came to see me and check to see how I was doing, I didnt need to make anything else. CW did enjoy it thoroughly, more than me perhaps. :)

09292012 - Quinoa Upma - Sunil came to visit me after my sickness - cooked this for hima nd me...he enjoyed it thoroughly.
