It’s FRIDAY!!! :) Hope everyone is enjoying the start to their weekend.
My work day was pretty good – not too crazy, and I was able to get some stuff checked off my to-do list, which is always nice.
As part of my March goals, I brought a good snack today!
I packed the last of my greek yogurt (about 1/2 cup) that I mixed with some frozen mixed berries. By this afternoon, the berries had thawed and turned the yogurt this awesome ruby color!
I added a few dark chocolate chips, too. I guess those are my Friday treat today – this snack definitely kept me out of those donuts again ;)
After Nick and I got home from work, we bundled up and took Maggie to the park for a little while. We played fetch and then she made friends with a big white dog named Casper. They played and chased each other around for a while before we all headed home. She had a blast.
The plan tonight was to make some bean burgers, and I think this batch turned out pretty well!
I started with 2 cans of pinto beans that I drained, rinsed, and mashed.
Then I mixed in:
- diced red onion
- diced scallion
- smoked paprika
I formed them in to 7 patties and one little bean ball and cooked them in the pan with a little olive oil.
They tasted great, but I still have trouble with them not staying together very well.
We had our bean burgers on some whole wheat buns – just ketchup for me! Plus some broccoli and corn.
This meal totally got me in the mood for spring/summer. I’m so ready to grill again! I can’t wait.
I’ve got some fun baking plans this weekend! I was going to start one recipe tonight, but it’s too late to get going on the dough so that will happen tomorrow.
But my sourdough starter is already out and waiting…so there may be pancakes in the morning :)
Do you have a tried and true homemade veggie burger recipe? I’d love to make my own to freeze.
