Curried Quinoa with Mango

OH WHAT UP, first time on FT. I shall introduce myself as the one that sucks at cooking, but could be wined and fine dined for eternity. Today was one of those perfect weather days in the East Bay. This morning, I went to Berkeley Bowl and felt like I died and went to organic produce, yuppie heaven. I bought a bajillion fruits and vegetables, and came home and made this weird dish for lunch. I wanted to try to make quinoa, because no one in my house knows how to cook quinoa. Thus, no judgement. I sort of stuck to this recipe, but added red onions, cilantro, and lime. It resulted in this:

Laughter ensued. Today I learned that I cannot chop a mango. Who knew it could be so difficult to chop up a mango. It was a mushy, mushy (yummy) mess. Anyway, it was pretty good but it's hard to get the texture of the quinoa right.

PS New froyo opened up in Montclair. Montclair was actually lookin pretty cute today.
