{Tumbleweeds...It's What's for Dinner}

Oh heeeeeeeeey Quinoa! Delicious little rice errr oat ummm bean? Well, what are you? I know I'm allowed to eat you but seriously what am I eating? Thank you Wikipedia for informing that I am eating a relative to the tumbleweed. Pppphffff! Bahaha! 

Quinoa (play /ˈknwɑː/ or /kɨˈn.ə/, Spanish: quinua, from Quechua: kinwa), a species of goosefoot (Chenopodium), is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds. It is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal, or grain, as it is not a member of the grass family. As a chenopod, quinoa is closely related to species such as beets, spinach, and tumbleweeds.

Really...come on now, REALLY?! OK I seriously love my kids for this cray cray diet. I'll tell Fletch when he is older that I loved him so much that I ate a tumbleweed for him. 

But yeah goodbye ice cream hello tumbleweeds. SHEESH!

And a shout out to the Mr. Mr. for making some awesome grub last night that had no diary, wheat, eggs, nuts or fish!
