For the next 10 days I am joining my daughter in the goal of eating more fruits and vegetables and less animal products.
(Not eliminating. Just decreasing)
I tried a recipe for black bean burgers yesterday. They were very good. But the leftovers were even better!
The recipe makes 6 burgers and they are very filling. While Dad and Son were eating grilled kielbasa on Labor Day. Mom and Daughter had black bean burgers instead. With cumin and cilantro, there was a definite Tex Mex flavor.
Here is the link to the recipe. It's a "keeper."

~definitely not "a veggie tale"~
Do you ever watch Food Network's Cupcake Wars? I saw the episode in which this very cupcake was a winner. A young vegan chef, Chloe Coscarelli, won against bakers of traditional egg and butter cupcakes. I took a look at Coscarelli's food blog and I will be trying some of her recipes. In fact, I can't wait!
I'll share my ups and downs over the next 10 days of "vegging out."

One more thing ~ All of us in our house have complained about a lack of energy and overall fatigue lately. While it could be a part of the grieving process, we are all sick and tired of being tired and having low energy. (I'm still running however!) Hopefully I can find a quick fix for our energy ebb!
As Family Manager, this falls to me. Got any ideas for us? Help a mother out!
