A recipe from food columnist Bob Leo that centers on the grain like seed quinoa.
Quinoa, pronounced Kee-nwa , is not a the guteral sound eminated by karate enthusiasts. Although I guess it could be, KEEEE-NWAAA ! Okay I'm getting a little carried away now. What quinoa actually is, is a grain like seed in the true grass family. It is related to plants like beets and spinach . Weird how that works, a beet you eat the root, spinach the leaves and quinoa the seeds. Quinoa leaves are edible but very bitter . It's the seed most people are after. Quinoa was originally cultivated some 3 of 4 thousand years ago by the Andean peoples of South America. The Incas held it sacred.

Recap and analysis of the week in state government.
Like pieces of a puzzle that don't quite fit together yet, the Big Three may have been separated at birth, but with each incremental step their destinies seem to grow more intertwined. No, we're not talking about those Big Three - Gov. Deval Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray and Speaker Robert DeLeo - though they play major character roles in this thickening plot. Instead, three bills have come to define the early months of the 2013 legislative agenda and resolutions on tax hikes, local road funding and the annual state budget continue to be elusive and dependent on one another. Patrick spent the early part of his week welcoming British Prime Minister David Cameron to Boston for a few quick meetings and a visit to the Copley …
