Another His and Her Dinner
OOOO my goodness for some reason Windows live shut down right when I was about to publish! That is so not cool. I will do my best to re-write the post, I am sure it won’t be as good as the first, o well.
Sat at the Doctors office for two hours today, to find out that I have laryngitis and a sinus infection. I told her that I was training for a marathon and asked if it was ok to run, she said to take it off today but then after that it should be fine. YEAH! I will take it easy though, mom. I couldn’t go into work because the doctor said I should not talk for the next 24 hours, I am sure my students would have loved that!
It was nice being home to prepare dinner, I also got a lot of random things done around the house too. My inspiration for dinner came from two things, one the SUN being out, and two these beauties that I just got in the mail, THANKS AL!
I have been seeing Country Bobs all over the blogworld, and was so excited to try them tonight. The sun was an inspiration because I haven’t seen it in a while, and it made me think of GRILLING!!! Well inside anyway.
I made another His and Her meal tonight. Black Bean burgers for her, and Turkey Burgers for him.
Her Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
- 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 green bell pepper, or whatever you have on hand cut into 2 inch pieces
- 1/2 onion, cut into wedges
- 3 cloves garlic, peeled
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty.
- Stir together finely chopped bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Then stir into mashed beans.
- In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, and pepper.
- Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties. ( I am going to have yummy leftovers)
For him Rachel Ray’s Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers
I also made his and her fries. I used this video to make them, wow what a great recipe.
Hers: A bun less black bean veggie burgers, a mixed green salad, sweet potato fries, and I topped my patties with avocado and tomatoes. Of course I had some Country Bobs for dipping on the side! I have to say that this BBQ sauce is the perfect mixture of spicy and sweet, I am not big on HOT things so I loved it, I can’t wait to try it on other things.
His: Two open faced medium turkey burgers with light cheese, and his baked fries. I forgot to give him some greens!!!
It was hard not to snack today just for the sake of snacking, being at home on my first day of Lent was hard, but I didn’t give in. Can’t wait to share with you all my lunch tomorrow!
Ok I am kinda of confused, is biggest loser on two times this week! I am watching it right now, but I am LOST!!! Isn’t it normally on Tuesdays, they have switched trainers, there weighing in as a team??? WHAT! I am confused. Someone fill me in?! Can I just say that I love BOB!
Alright I am feeling good, just still no voice, but plan on hitting the gym at 6am tomorrow for my speed workout!
P.S.Oh by the way is there anyone in southern California that would like to run a long with me this weekend???? I am so missing having running buddies!
