bake it til you make it
i tried to make the black bean burgers from veganomicon today. they didn't turn out as well as i had hoped so far as density and shape, but the taste was still okay. i will probably crumble them into nachos or burritos. i can't remember ever making a burger of any sort, so that's my consolation for now. next time will be better.
i did make another pan cookie and another dozen carrot cake cupcakes. i am pleased to say, neither of those operations were a bust and i used all but a tablespoon of the frosting. so one recipe frosting is for about 2 dozen cupcakes, heavy on the icing. you probably could get three dozen going lighter.
tomorrow i am going to make spinach lasagne for dinner. i haven't made it in years, so it will be nice to have back in rotation. we are also having a taco tuesday and grilled tofutti sammiches and soup this week. thursday and friday are usually free for alls.
i totally have to go to bed soon but i am too hyped up. i do this every sunday.
