quinoa loaf for thanksgiving

quinoa loaf and mushroom gravy!

We had a nice thanksgiving. As per our custom, we made a loaf. This time I cobbled a new one from assorted recipes. It was a good first effort, but a bit crumbly. Mom and dad said they liked it but I think the dude and the girl preferred the heavier cheese and lentil one.

1 cup mushrooms chopped fine
1 cup onion chopped
1 cup celery chopped
2 cups cooked red lentils
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup walnuts toasted and chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
rosemary
salt and pepper
red pepper flakes.

Assemble the loaf in a parchment lined loaf pan. Bake 45 minutes at 350.

During his visit, dad got a hankering to do something fun. What constitutes fun at the Acres? Why, how about we cut down a tree?
Dad and the dude cut down the hammock tree. It was seriously rotten and had some squirrel nests in it! Those little squirrels were evicted, poor little guys.

shredded bark made a nice soft nest inside

dude and the hammock tree--unfair matchup!!
