You can now make this Copycat Costco Quinoa Salad recipe at home. You need minimal ingredients to put together this simple yet flavorful salad.
I’m a little too late to the beach scene. School has started back up and vacations for “most” people are over. Not the case for our family. I’m packing us up and we are headed to Charleston this weekend for a little R & R.
Can we talk about faux tans for a minute?
Sure… I guess I’ll be having it with myself.
I’m WHITE and I don’t tan well. In fact, I burn, peel, and then go back to being extremely white with no color change at all. Tanning salons are not my thing since I’ve had skin cancer on my face. The next best idea is spray tans. I love them when I can find a decent person to do it. The last one I had was three years ago for my wedding.
My problem is once you step in the pool, the tan comes off immediately. It’s like going in all pretty and stuff, and then you come out, and people are like what just happened to that chick.
So the big questions remains spray tan or go pale?
I’m also behind on getting “beach body ready.” This quinoa salad should have been eaten all summer long with some fresh fruits and veggies. Nothing like cramming a summer salad diet one week before the beach, I guess the pizza that I ate with it also doesn’t help.
