Today was so FUN! A Saturday at heart. I did ZERO school-related work and will pay for that this weekend, but you know what, I probably needed the personal day today more than I will on Saturday (when it’s supposed to rain!)
I wasn’t really hungry all afternoon. So I traded my pear for pumpkin!
I’ve got about 6 pumpkin beers in the fridge with a claim on them and the husband is always bugging me to have one to clear them out (he swears they will be in there next October, but I just want to have one when I can really savor it!!) But tonight was relaxing and fun watching the Office before dinner, so we split one. His + Hers (I always get the bottle 🙂 )
For dinner we made 100% comfort foods: Homemade Black Bean Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries + Kale Chips.
The burgers (for 2) were:
- 3/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
- 2.5 tbsp whole wheat flour
- 1 sprinkle garlic powder
- 1 sprinkle cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp EVOO
- 3 glugs Worcestershire
Mash together, form into ball, split ball in half, form into patties, sear in a skillet with some cooking spray until lightly browned.
On GH “French Toast” bread, with ketchup and mustard and pickle
The fries were the best we’ve ever made!!! Cut into strips, coated with 1-2 tsp olive oil, salt, pepper, cinnamon and cayenne. Put on a heavily sprayed cookie sheet and baked at 400* for about 45 minutes, rotating 90* every 15 minutes.
Kale chips were delicious as always. They went into the 400* oven with the SP fries for the last 12 minutes or so. They were on a heavily sprayed cookie sheet and sprinkled with garlic powder and kosher salt.
All served with a ton of ketchup –
He brought home an Oatmeal Raisin cookie and gave me a generous bite for dessert
Get Your Country Bob’s!
The sauce is sweeping blog land!
We’re going to watch one more Office and then wind down. I’m planning on going to cycle class tomorrow morning, but we’ll see how slow I am when I get up 🙂 And Kelsey and I have plans for a girls day out after Food Lab!
