*i’ve been making stews on sunday to eat during my busy week

*yesterday, i decided to just throw whatever i found into the pot and see what happened

*i think it turned out pretty tasty

*recipe below: feel free to adjust to whatever you have in your kitchen. i usually use quinoa but decided to use a black rice i bought that comes from canada–nutty and high and protein.
