Popped Quinoa (WHAT?)

Good morning and Happy Tuesday! The best kind of Mondays are Mondays that are actually Tuesdays….Four day week, here I come! I had a great weekend filled with lots of food and friends. On Saturday night, three of my friends who are moving out of DC had a going away party. Prior to the party,…
