We have enjoyed this Kale & Quinoa salad so many times…it is savory & filling…PERFECT for a Friday night during Lent.  I add the sun-dried tomatoes, on-the-side, because my family LOVES sun-dried tomatoes.

So…this afternoon, I started prepping the ingredients, {check out the recipe by clicking on:  One-Pot Kale & Quinoa Salad }…

Michael phoned in the afternoon that he was, most likely, NOT going to make the ferry at 5:45pm in Tiburon…he would be on the 6:45pm arriving ferry.  No problem!  I had all of the prep done & so I grabbed Duke {our Black Lab} and headed out for a late afternoon hike around the Island.  Temperatures must have reached 70°F today…it was so warm and bright!  Duke & I enjoyed a beautiful walk this evening, catching glimpses of early spring blooms (I would have taken pictures but Duke had other plans).  Michael texted me 30 minutes into the walk to let me know he was on the earlier ferry {surprise!} with a college friend & his wife …dinner guests!  CHANGE OF PLANS…dinner tonight turned into sushi at our favorite place in town and we had SO MUCH fun reminiscing!!!!

We returned home to all of my little “soldier” bowls of waiting ingredients for the pilaf…

Speaking of friends…tonight’s Friday Sunset comes from KP in Healdsburg, CA…

KP Sunset

“These are the Geysers, in a rare steam blowing evening, Feb 8.  I was looking out the kitchen window, and grabbed my i phone to snap this photo.”

THANK YOU SO MUCH KP!  I so love seeing the beauty from your corner of the world…

Please, send me a snapshot of your sunset to share!

Wishing you all a Wonderful Weekend & Happy Dining!
