ECO Lunchbox Three-in-One #49

Southwestern quinoa salad (from Plant Power), some cake I'd made to bring to a neighbor last night, dark chocolate covered blueberries, and chunks of cantaloupe.

This was a really good salad, even though I completely forgot to add the cumin. It uses pink beans, which I don't know if I've ever eaten before. They're reminiscent of pinto beans to me and worked well with these flavors. My one complaint is that I made the full recipe and it was entirely too much for me to eat, even over the course of a few days, and beans typically come in larger packaging than I need for these kinds of recipes if I want to cut them down. I need to learn to freeze beans, I guess.
