Even though we cooked,
and even though it was a typical meal,
and even though we cleaned up afterwards…
…There’s just something nice about cooking in someone else’s kitchen!
We’re cooking at Karen’s again –
Homemade bean burgers a la this recipe. We added egg and panko this time – the inside and out – and they turned out great.
Beautiful, beautiful collards, steamed in some of the discarded bean broth
Topped with guac + ketchup – who needs a burger bun!? (We have ZERO bread in this house!)
Pickles to complete the burger theme!
And lastly, leftover rice spruced up with some sundried tomato pesto (this stuff is amazing and I’m going to make it up and I will put up the recipe when I do!) Pesto rice is the easiest way to jazz it up I can imagine.
For dessert, I drank Karen’s colon cleansing liquid. For real! She had to take it before her surgery and wanted me to taste how horrid it is. Spiked with a little Crystal Light, I didn’t think it was that bad – so long as you’re ready to down salt water!
Straight no chaser:
We are all curled up watching Sex & The City 2, which I have avoided watching since it came out due to bad reviews, but it’s pretty good so far! Those women are just so fun to watch.
OH, and guess who finished 98% of her article today!! Having the house to myself helped, but I really am a believer in tough love and just got it done. Close Gmail and Twitter helped too : )
