Went to bootcamp, went to CT Humane to walk dogs, came home, showered, went to lunch w/ hubby and our accountant, went grocery shopping, went home, got Nolie and brought her to the vet, got warning that one of my brand new tires was low on air, went to tire store and waited an hour for them to fix the hole that a nail made, got gas b/c I was running on fumes and finally went home for the FINAL time to make: BLACK BEAN BURGERS!!!!!!!
If you made it through all that.........now you can hear about my black bean burgers!!!! I came across Iowa Girl Eats blog this week and YUM!!!!!! She's got some GREAT recipes on her blog. AND......she takes step by step pictures for non-cooks like myself. The BBB's sounded so yummy (I don't eat meat) so I decided to make them. (I'm the type of person that bookmarks and prints out a TON of recipes and never makes them - so I'm trying to change that!!)
Now warning......I'm not a food blogger!! And....I took these pictures with my iPhone! But......here's how they were coming together:
Added some pepper jack cheese
And...........THE FINISHED PRODUCT!!!
And.........look at her finished product!! Pretty close right?

Cindy, Jill and Frank all said they liked them, although I'm sure Frank wanted to kill me. WAY to many nutritional things in one dinner seating!!! We had these with tomato salad, grilled peppers and corn on the cob. (I even snuck in flax seed into the burgers!!)
And if THAT wasn't enough........I made a version of these overnight oat's for breakfast from Oh My Veggies:

I used raspberries instead of mango's and I didn't have coconut (which probably wouldn't be good with the raspberries anyway). I'll let you know what I think of them tomorrow!!
Hopefully I can take some pictures of the FOUR cards sitting on my desk and get them blogged!
Do you have any really great food blogs that you follow? Here's another one that I do: Oh She Glows
Thanks for your visit!
