Running Forward

A Busy Break

on November 23, 2011

Turns out my seasonal AG job is keeping me busier than expected. I was put on the schedule for 5 days this week. Today they called me, so I ended up working from 12 to 4:30. I didn’t get as much done today as I originally hoped, but at least I made some $. For dinner I made veggie burgers, sauteed zucchini and squash, and a cucumber salad. It was my first attempt at veggie burgers and it turned out pretty darn good. I need to tweak it a bit, but here’s a rough draft of the ingredients. Of course, I forgot to take pictures, but at least now you can imagine beautiful dishes instead of my pitiful photography skills.

Mushroom Veggie Burgers

1 can pinto beans

2 portobello caps

1 small red bell pepper

worcestershire sauce

various burger seasonings



bread crumbs



For the cucumber salad I chopped up some mini cucumbers and tossed them in a dill dressing.

Dill Dressing

1/4 regular cucumber

plain nonfat Greek yogurt

dried dill

red wine vinegar



It was a delicious, healthy dinner that pleased everyone. Actually, I made a separate dinner for my brother because that’s how it works in my house.  :/   Anyway, I made some homemade mac ‘n cheese and it was definitely the best I’ve ever created. The secret is to start with a roux. I finished the night by baking my key lime meringue pie for tomorrow. It’s so beautiful! In the morning I just have to go running, make my pumpkin cornbread, and get dressed up. I think I can handle it.
