Oh Congratulations!!!!!  I love little boys they are so fun.  I have two already and it will not surprise me at all if this one is a boy too.  I go for my big scan on the 8th.  I don't want to know the sex though.  I always like for it to be a surprise.  I forget if you told us or not, were you craving meat or sweets?

FUN :)

oh actually.. can't eat meat really but it is because of the smells.  I want sweets sometimes but only once in a while but I think it is only when my sugar gets low..  Fruits and veggies I love the most.. :)

Yeah I am not so good at preparing meat because of the looks and smells but apparently I have no trouble eating it these days.  Argh miss my vegetarianism though I must confess.  What are you eating for your protein mostly?  That's what I am always trying to make sure I have enough of.
1581788 tn?1340233315
I have been drinking Ensure, making protein shakes, eggs, beans, not huge on cheese but I eat some it some..  Oh and I have been drinking milk every day....    you ever make quinua?  really good....  it gets hard at times though..  I try to eat chicken if we go out or steak.. but only if some one else cooks it lol...

You know what I love quinoa and I need to make some because I recently bought some more of it because it is a pure protein.

I cook mine in vegetable stock.  I love the red quinoa best.  I saute onions and garlic and then I add it to the mix.  I use some parmesan cheese added in there to and nutritional yeast.  Now you are so making me hungry!!

Today I am craving salmon patties.

oh you know what else I like actually,,  Imitation Crab Meat..  and I will have to try your way of Quinua.  I have the black with mushrooms, leaks, eggplant, and other stuff if 'i decide lol.  but those mostly
1666434 tn?1325265950
oh that sounds awesome with the eggplant and mushrooms, you will have to post your recipe so I can try a variation of it, I never thought of that!

I always wondered if you could cook quinoa in a rice maker...
1581788 tn?1340233315
So sorry just saw this..  
here is the recipe I found and changed around. I do that a lot.  I always change recipes around according to what I have in my pantry or if I don't like something in it..

2 cups fat-free, less-sodium vegetable broth (such as Swanson Certified Organic) 1 cup water 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided 1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa, rinsed 3 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 1 tablespoon olive oil, divided 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 3 cups thinly sliced leek (about 2 large) 4 cups thinly sliced shiitake mushroom caps (about 8 ounces) 1 1/2 cups chopped red bell pepper 1/4 cup dry white wine 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts  
Combine broth, water, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Stir in quinoa. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Stir in 3 tablespoons parsley, 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Remove from heat; keep warm.
Heat remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add leek; sauté 6 minutes or until wilted. Add mushroom caps, bell pepper, and wine; cook 2 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Place 1 cup quinoa in each of 4 shallow bowls; top each with 1 1/4 cups vegetable mixture and 2 tablespoons walnuts.

as far as cooking quinua in a rice cooker.. not sure..
