You always nail it so well! If you don't know how to pronounce "quinoa", well then, just go eat at Subway.

Doris

I know how to pronounce it--keen' wah. That doesn't mean I want to eat it. And I LIKE Subway (we do here in Outer Snoburbia)!

Everyone knows how to pronounce "quinoa" from watching the Whole Foods parking lot video:

Actually I learned to pronounce it watching Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels! She may eat it; I won't.

But quinoa tastes so good! And it is a seed, not a grain, so it is high protein. That makes it a good carb side dish substitute for diabetics and other people who limit their carbs. Win-win!

I am so not snoburbian in many ways, but on food I fall right in line. I can slum it at Subway, but a quinoa, spinach, and pesto wrap sounds much better.

Ha ha! So accurate! Would that we had such wraps here in Wheaton.

Aren't grains seeds?

Quinoa tastes good if it's prepared well, you can find many recipes to make a fantastic dish.

Your blog starts "It is August." Well, now it is October. Time for a new blog. How about the Nationals going to the playoffs as a topic? Not Snoburban enough? Of the 30,000 plus fans at each game, surely some were from Snoburbia. Ryan Zimmerman lives in Snoburbia!

Missing your blogs! Need it to keep my sanity while living in a *gasp!* 2br condo in Bethesda.
I am so tired of the cell-phone yacking, big ass SUV driving snoburban moms. And yet, I live on their turf.
Pleeeeease more blogs, merci!

Quinoa catching on with gringos has had both good and bad results. The good results: the price goes up, and farmers are getting more for their crops. The bad:


"Yet the higher prices quinoa is fetching have had an unanticipated impact where the grain is grown. Some local children are showing signs of malnutrition because their parents have substituted rice and noodles for quinoa in the family diet, said Walter Severo, president of a quinoa producer's group in southwest Bolivia."
