Sunday Blues

March 6, 2011

Breakfast is back 🙂

Cup of joe and a bowl of pumpkin banana oatmeal.

In the mix: rolled oats, almond milk, water, cinnamon, salt, pumpkin puree, banana.

Toppings include: fresh blueberries, shredded coconut and pecans.

At least breakfast was good today.


Other than that, today was a horrible day.  The weather was horrible. Work was horrible. Getting off of work was horrible.

I was a man down at work today, so now I’m behind schedule for tomorrow.  Due to me rushing through trimming some skirt steak, I sliced my finger.  Let me just tell you how AWESOME that was.  Of course it’s on the fingertip of my index finger.  Now I feel handicapped.

Oh then I get home from work to find that my powere charger for my Mac is dead.  FABULOUS!!  One con to owning an expensive laptop?  Expensive accessories!! Gahhhh. One power cord for $80. Really Apple?

I also bought the most expensive tank of gas today.  $34 for my little car. I feel bad for everyone with SUVS and diesel trucks!

Are you sick of my whining yet or have you already clicked on the “x” ?


At least I have dinner in the bag tonight.  Leftover lentil burgers that I made yesterday!

I got inspired by looking at 101 Cookbooks.  It’s a perfect use of leftover cooked lentils.

I had about 1 1/2 cups of cooked lentils.  I threw them in the food processor with two eggs and some salt.

I blended it all together like so.

I transferred it into a mixing bowl and stirred in some onions.

And then some breadcrumbs and a splash of worcestershire sauce.

I wanted to give these burgers a little “zest” so I threw some thai basil chiffonade into the mix.

Then I formed them into patties and pan seared them for a few minutes on each side [just until warmed through].

Cue lentil burger photo shoot…


I sauteed up some cabbage to go on the side and topped the burgers with the tzatziki “esque” sauce from the other day and some fresh avocado.


Now I am off to go hide under my covers in the fetal position, hoping nothing else bad will happen today.

Wish me luck.

Vanessa 🙂

P.S. Game night tomorrow, that means late post!

    Eeek that sounds like a rough day!! I hope it gets better!
    If it makes you feel better, my tiny car costs $60 to fill, and I fill it <1x per week… because I drive to school and back 1 hour each way… YUCK

    On a happy note… how good were those burgers? They look delish!
