Julie's test recipe is the star this week

I am so blessed to be able to be one of Julie's testers from Everyday Dish. This week I made one of her new burger recipes. Probably one of the best veggie burgers I have ever had. Easy to make, incredible taste, texture, and versatile! DH said they were very tasty! They are great for leftovers and just look below at what else we did with them!

Just out of the frying pan resting!

No this is not a burger, but wanted you to see the size of the tomato we got from our CSA! Huge! It is bigger than the large veganaise jar. They are so good!

Here is a perfect veggie burger, thanks to Julie, on a whole wheat bun, lettuce, veganaise, mustard, and rice cheese with a scoop of baked beans. MMMM GOOD!

So, I started back to college today, which meant packing a lunch. I love my laptop lunch system. Sure beats school cafeteria lunches. CSA grape tomatoes, carrots, red grapes, and one of Julie's burgers with mustard in the little blue container. Just what the doctor ordered after going
to my nutrition class. :o)

Remember I said that the burgers were versatile? Well, here they are rolled in little "meetballs" lightly fried and served along some of DH's extra spicy vegan chili. He made a 19 cup pot of this chili today while I was at school. What a guy. We served it over baked potatoes, with corn, and a dollop of vegan sour cream. Thanks Babe!!!

Ok, I promised a birthday picture and here it is!
Happy Birthday to me!!!!

Happy 51st Birthday to me! Brandie took me to Stephanie's Pizza. It is a vegan bakery in Ocean Beach, which is in the San Diego area. Words can not describe how delicious there pizza's are. Maybe telling you that the 2 of us ate the whole thing is proof enough. Well, we couldn't just leave leftovers in the car while we went to the movies. Gross! And you don't waste this pizza! Thank you, Brandie for making my day so special!

The server at the restaurant took our picture together. Brandie you are the best! She gave me vegan fruit sweetened cookies, zevia (rootbeer flavor), and made me a bunch of family cloth with an accompanying wet bag! I love it all!
