Football Sunday

 Are you ready for some football?

We may not have won but my guy, Powers, got an interception so I'm happy!

The roof & the window was open... Perfect weather for football. :)

In the 4th quarter we headed down to the in-law's seats.
So close a football could have hit us!
But before the game we tailgated...
Burgers, fruit salad, chips, potato salad, cookies & hot cocoa!
I also lost a couple games of Euchre. :(

And before tailgating there was this delicious breakfast...
Oatmeal with carob powder, almond butter, honey & topped with dried cranberries

And for those of you who want to know how I made my QUINOA BURGERS...

1/2 C Quinoa
1 C Water
1 Onion (I like a LOT of onion, for most you'd probably only want 1/2)
1/2 T Ground Flax + 1 1/2 T water (equal to 1/2 an egg)
Big Handful of Chopped Spinach - nuked with some water to wilt it
1 1/2 T Whole Wheat Flour
Pinch of Salt
1/4 t Baking Soda
1/4 t Paprika

Bring the Quinoa & water to boil and let simmer for about 15 minutes until the water is all absorbed.
Pre-heat your oven to 400°
While that's cooking gather/prepare the rest of your ingredients.
When the Quinoa is cooled a bit mix everything together & with wet hands form patties.
Place on a non-stick mat or parchment paper on a cooking sheet.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes.  Flip and cook for another 15.
I eat mine topped with tomato & avocado. :)

Gather ingredients

Form your patties
