    A tattoo. Interesting.

    We had a dream of a boat. And finally got one. Love sailing. Lucky to be able to do it with your whole family.

      The dream lives…

      I used to sail with my grandfather as a child and I miss that feeling of being on the open ocean, wind in your hair. I want that…

    I’m too big of a wimp for a tattoo. Ouch!
    I love the salad though, but I cannot find quinoa anywhere around here. Is there anything I could use instead?

    Yum! I love quinoa.

    Tattoo…hmmm. What about a picture of a stick of butter or duck legs. That would be inspiring :–)

    lovely salad.

    and…homeschooling: yes, yes. In the hands of a loving, intelligent, responsible parent (or two), it’s awesome. I can’t imagine school any other way. I’m in graduate school now, and it still surprises professors when they realize I started my education at home.

    ah, tatoos! I think about them often. They’re, most often, beautiful. I wish I knew I could keep my mind made up, though. That’s another thing…homeschooling is great for kids with ADD enthusiasms, like me. :)

    just a great post!

    I really like quinoa and limes and avocado too. ;) This looks like a great summery salad, can’t wait to try it!

    Nice one! Enjoyed your meandering thought provoking blog and great reminder of setting ones goals, I was a homeschooled kid many moons ago and have fabulous memories of that times (the things we saw and did) – I really believe having a ‘schooling’ like mine sets you up to believe anything is possible – all you have to do is name it. Cheers Anna

    I’ve had Quinoa in a soup (sausage quinoa soup) but I’ve never cooked with it. Your recipe looks great!

    Great post Mrs. Guilty. Goals are so important that while at a conference a couple of weeks ago I got fired up about our life and came home with this crazy idea for Mrs. Guilty to specifically target our goals both together and separately. I am so glad to have them down on paper now and checking on them every day. We will sail/pilot that boat through the Panama Canal.. and the 12′ aluminium boat we have now just wont do.

    What a beautiful dream to have. Keep reaching for it and make it a reality. I love quinoa and this is just how I like to eat it. Fabulous recipe. xx

    Not only am I hopelessly un-trendy in the tattoo department (don’t have one, don’t want one, and can’t understand the allure…), but even more embarrassing is the fact that I have never eaten quinoa. Probably because I don’t know how to pronounce it. Is there any hope for me?? GREG

      Keen-wah. Not so hard once you know how to say it greg! And don’t worry, my husband feels the same way about tattoos…;)

    My dream involves all the friends I’ve made in my life, all in one place at the same time for a large party involving food I cooked, dancing and a beach. With them spread out all over the world, this is a near impossible dream, but still I hope. Here I sit, raising my glass of breakfast OJ to your dream and mine and wishing hard that they come true.

    Looks like such a good salad. I have to tell you that I miss Vancouver Island a lot. We live in Ottawa now. Hope to go back some day.

    Great collection of quinoa recipes, thanks! I’ve been making lots of salads with the grain lately too… my favorite right now isn’t a salad at all but breakfast quinoa with blueberries.

    A perfect way to start the day: http://ow.ly/2mhm5

    This looks really good. I love quinoa. I just bought a box of red quinoa at Trader Joe’s and I think I will make this with it. Mmmm…
