quinoa or tuna fish?
I am continuing searches for my cooking skills and so far I am okay'ish in baking things
for some reasons salads are just not my thing
and I have no idea why
because how hard can it be, to chop things (and I can cut perfect cubes) and then mix it?
apparently extremely hard :)
today I tried one recipe with quinoa (why does spell checker mark this word? it is quinoa, I double checked), tuna fish, cucumber and eggs covered in dressing
and I after finishing it, I just threw that straight into trash bin
becaaaause it smelled so baaaaaaaaaaad
the products were perfectly fine
it is just the combination of quinoa and tuna fish that kills me
I still have half of the pack of quinoa that I bought, because I always wanted to try what was that fuss all about
super healthy, super super and super super super
*insert some fancy words instead of super :)
quinoa smells bad
it really does
but what is worse
it tastes awful
it is like if you chew some plastic crap with plastic aftertaste wondering "and why the hell did I spend so much money on that crap?"
I did not understand that
fish smells bad for me, because I just had not been eating meat for years and it is not that it is rotten or something, no, it is just because I am no longer associate that smell with food
it should be my favorite new thing
but it is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad
dead fish or fancy quinoa?
I think in the battle of what smells worse quinoa is a winner
*team buckwheat here :)
just found a picture of quinoa that I liked
apparently, I am not the only one, who is not a fan of quinoa :)
it was even bigger surprise, when I Googled it and understood, that outside the Baltic countries, Russia, Belarus and Ukraine buckwheat is not common
if you are living outside the countries I listed, I would recommend you looking for the buckwheat in some eco store and try eating it (just don't forget to add some salt and a tiny little bit of butter)
