The Lighter Side of JzB

From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Six Word Saturday

Keen, wow, tasty - good for you.

We just discovered Quinoa (pronounced keenwah) a South American plant with grain-like seeds.  It has a delicate flavor, with a nut-like overtone that isn't too bland, and it seems pretty versatile.  It's high in both protein and fiber.



  1. I've heard it's yummy but I've never actually had it. Thanks for playing 6WS!

  2. Hello from Oklahoma! So good to meet you!

  3. It really is good. Try it on your taco's with black beans, lettuce, cheese and salsa (no meat needed). Delicious!

  4. I love Quinoa!! And I'm with Melissa, perfect for tacos!
    Happy 6WS,

  5. I have never tried it...but I think I will!

    I like things that are good for us!

    Happy Saturday!

  6. I've not tried it but your accounting of it has sold me!

  7.      Quinoa sounds a dream,
       Nut-like overtones and all...
         Can one bake with it?

  8. Steve -

    Interesting thought

    I really don't know.

    You'd have to pick your spots, I'd think.
