I wasn’t kidding about being tired last night. I was fast asleep by 9:30. It was pretty awesome. My legs were feeling a little sore this morning (a 9:15 pace 10K is pretty fast for me), so I opted to do some triceps and biceps at the gym instead of running or leg strength training. And then I took a nap. You know, the one that I didn’t get to take yesterday.
And then I cooked, finally. I don’t know what happened, but cooking went completely out the window for the past few weeks. But I’m back! Back with sweet potato burgers and brussels sprouts.
This sweet potato burger recipe seems to have taken Pinterest by storm. I have seen it everywhere. I changed the recipe a good bit though. I only used one can of beans, hummus instead of tahini (because I didn’t have any), doubled the flour and didn’t use panko. Oh and I baked them for about 25 minutes at 350 instead of pan frying them. So yeah, I pretty much completely changed the recipe.
The burgers were good, but they fell apart pretty easily (as the recipe said they would). Still pretty tasty though. I served them with brussels sprouts. The secret to good brussels, in my opinion, is to get them really seared, almost burnt.
Get them looking like this…
..and then cook them another 5 minutes or even more. But take a better picture of your dinner plate than I did.
So, I did the 11 things blog post a few weeks ago, but Stephanie tagged me in her recent post, so I figured that I’d answer her questions.
1. What is your all time favorite cartoon?
Does a Pixar movie count as a cartoon? UP! If not, Beauty and the Beast.
2.What did you want to be when you grew up?
An animator for Disney. That went well with the first question.
3.What is one house hold item you could not live without?
4.What is your least favorite (or most hated) food?
5. What is you favorite sports team?
I’m not a big sports person. I’ll route for the Falcons or Redskins for football and the Braves or Orioles for baseball. Or the South Carolina Gamecocks because that’s where Jason went to college. (My school didn’t have a football team.)
6.Are you a Dog or Cat person?
7. Do you have a favorite quote?
It’s a song lyric, but I’ve always liked:
“I will go in this way and find my own way out.” – Dave Matthews Band #41
8. What do you never leave home without?
9.Harry Potter or Twilight? (Or neither?)
10. Do you have a pet peeve? If so, what is it?
I hate it when people add an “s” to store names that aren’t plural. The name of the store is not Barnes & Nobles.
11. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, famous or not, who would it be?
I have to get back to you on that one. Not sure.
