Before I get to the recipe, the What’s Up Dig on Wednesday was a lot of fun but intense. There were so many people by the end of the night. It basically was one big party. The main objective was to vote for the best of the best local restaurants, people, events and so on. So many categories.
I’m so glad they made it simple to vote. You use your smart phone to scan a QR code and that takes you to the voting site. You enter a code that is different for each person, then start voting.
Then lots of hanging out and people watching.
I was tired before it was over. It’s a good thing we didn’t have to wait for the results. They will be revealed in What’s Up publication mid June. I’ll share the results once I hear anything; Can’t wait!
As promised, here is the recipe for my quinoa with butternut squash and mushrooms. It combines some of my favorite foods that I had on hand last weekend. It tastes great on it’s own as a side dish paired with chicken or fish. I’ve also been throwing it my salads with more vegetables and spinach.
And lastly, I’m racing again this weekend!! I seem to be in the running zone lately and I’m taking full advantage. There have also been some amazing and fairly priced races happening around here these past few months. I’ll be running The Braden Aboud Memorial Run 10k on Sunday. I already know the route will be through some gorgeous communities. I’m very excited and feeling great!
