Quinoa & Sweet Potato Mashed together to form the perfect base for Caramelized Onions, Mushrooms, and a drizzle of BBQ Sauce!
When we left Maine, it was starting to feel like Fall…crisp cool air, leaves changing, jeans and scarves (scarfs?), PSL…then we got to Missouri, and its been hot, high 80’s, SO humid my hair can’t even handle it, sticky, and buggy. I mean, I guess I should be happy that it still feels like Summer. But I’m not. Fall is my favorite and I was so ready for it. When we got here I had to break out the shorts and tanks again. What a drag. (dramatic much?) Word on the street (the weather channel), is that the heat and humidity is supposed to break this weekend and we’ll get to enjoy some dry air and weather in the 70’s. Here’s to hoping.
I’m sure it’s really annoying that I’m complaining about the weather, there are much bigger issues going on. Government shutdown anyone? But I don’t have much TV to talk about because where we are has NO DVR! gasp! So I haven’t been able to catch up on much! I did watch Nashville though, next to Revenge its my favorite, because seriously, what happened to Greys?! Snooze Fest. All I have to say about Nashville so far, is wth deacon? you’re pissing me off, I hate pity parties.
Quinoa Sweet Potato Patties. Yes! Do this. Wonderful healthy, flavorful, lunch or dinner. You could definitely put these on buns too and make them a sandwich, I opted out of that this time. Next time for sure. The Caramelized onions and mushrooms with BBQ sauce take it up another level. Don’t like mushrooms? Leave them out. But definitely add the caramelized onions. Yes. The quinoa helps add a little texture, since sweet potatoes are soft, you don’t want it to be all mush. They’re fantastic.
