I’ve thought a lot about this blog. Slow Cooker Quinoa has kind of had me stumped.
Quinoa was the subject of my first blog over two years ago. I didn’t want to go down that same research based path again. I’ve already told you about its origins and stellar nutritious powers. Also, I don’t do a whole lot of crock pot cooking anymore. Crock pots and slow cookers are a great appliance when preparing food for families and pot lucks. Cooking for one and crock pots don’t really go together.
I have a small 1.5 quart crock pot that is a pretty, bright yellow, so I pulled it out and set it on my kitchen counter hoping its cheery look would inspire me. It didn’t. So I left. It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday in October with temperatures hitting the low seventies, not a day to be inside making up recipes. Also it was a perfect day to work on my biggest project.
Cheese of the Month for October is il Giardino Parmigiano Reggiano and the region is comes from is Italy.
Celebrate the King of Cheese, Parmigiano Reggiano – aged 22 months. More than 700 years ago, Italian cheesemakers called “Casaros” took great pride in making Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, apprenticing for many years before being allowed to make even one wheel on their own. Today Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is still handmade with the utmost care, exactly the way it was in the 13th century. Made of partly skimmed cow’s milk, il Giardino brand’s Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is characterized by its rich flavor and compact, granular texture. High protein content, smooth digestion and natural ingredients make it not only a tasty choice, but a healthy one as well. Parmigiano Reggiano is commonly grated over pasta dishes, stirred into soups and risottos, and eaten on its own. It is often shaved or grated over other dishes like salads.
