I don't really like wheat or barley.

One might say I'm against the grain.

Big fan of wheat, barley, corn, and pretty much any other grain in fermented, distilled, and liquid form.

Quinoa is great if you like stealing food from the mouths of South Americans.

I eat grains found only in the tombs of Toltec shamans; you've probably never heard of them.

soosh: I'm quite fond of oat groats, spelt berries, rye berries, buckwheat groats, etc.  just look for the Bob's Red Mill brand display and try some out.

Millet is not one I'm fond of.  Too small and feels like birdseed.

I'm not a fan either. All those poems about harps and candles. Too sentimental.

Well, I don't have a recipe that utilizes quinoa, but I have one for making quinoa:

1 cup of instant rice
2 dirty socks, minced (hiking or gym)
1/2 cup sand
1 cup dirt
4 cups watter

mix all ingredients and boil until the house stinks.
Serve to pretentious foodie hipsters or unwanted guests.

Amaranth has the disadvantage of tasting a lot like mice smell.

I've heard that mixing it with corn meal takes away that factor, but ugh.
