I made this quick Yogurt Parfait earlier this week for breakfast. I had bought a container of "Yoplait Source Parfait Citron Meringue" that tasted so yummy! I scooped in the yogurt, a granola cereal with pumpkin seeds, and fresh raspberries.
They were so simple and quick to make. In less than 5 minutes I had all 4 made and ready to eat. They were delicious!
I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

I now even have weekly menu boards created on Pinterest to organize my weekly meal plans. It has become a great tool. So I guess you could say that this meal, in a small way, does prove that I actually do make recipes that I find on there. :) Anyway, I was in the mood for a different kind of bbq meal so I choose to make Asian Grilled Drumsticks, Asian Cabbage Mango Slaw, Tricolor Thai Salad with Zucchini & Yellow Squash, and plain white rice. Early in the day I put the salads together and because there were so many vegetables it involved a bit of prep work. Plus l thought it would be a good idea to get the vegetables maridnad…
