Dance, My Pretties!

There are few more rousing ways to start Sunday than with brunch and a Yiddish dance workshop. I think I've learned the choreography of Steve's slow hora by heart now. Next time he offers his workshop CDs for sale, I'll get one, and then I'll have that in my "teaching Intro to World Music" stash.

Fun fact of the day: Quinoa is kosher for Passover.

Your Intro class is going to be the coolest. I'm glad you had fun!

Somehow, I'm really looking forward to being given my very own section of 102. Of course, I say this now, and I'll probably bitch about it when the time comes, but right now, the idea of taking a class of undergrads on a whirlwind tour of world music sounds like lots of fun.

And I have some! I have never cooked quinoa before.

This was served cold, with pieces of cucumber and cherry tomato and snipped dill. Very tasty. I also have a recipe for lemon quinoa if you're interested.

Quinoa is kosher for Passover. Good to know.

I love quinoa. It's high in protein, low in carbohydrates and lots of vitamins and minerals. Somedays I have it for breakfast instead of cornflakes! Also they sell it here as energetic cookies, with honey and amaranth seeds. A wonderful snack.

So how's your voice?

The voice is doing just fine. It was a little raggedy yesterday after its workout on Saturday, but I should be able to sing at gamelan rehearsal with no problems tomorrow night.

What's your breakfast quinoa recipe? I just bought a big bag in preparation for Passover, and I'm eager to use it in new and interesting ways.

Sorry, I buy it prepared in the oen air market! I think it is roasted, and then I mix it with milk and fruit and just eat it up as cornflakes...

I can roast quinoa in my oven, I think. A little milk, a little dried fruit -- should be kind of granola-like. Thanks!

Okay, that's a start. I think I'm going to do two test batches, one roasted straight, and one boiled first and then roasted, see which one comes out more edible.
