This song has been stuck in my head all. day. long.
(watch the video. the ending is pretty cute.)
Darn you catchy song!
It got to the point where I finally had to download it, listen to it 15 times, and add it to my Flying Pig playlist. I have it set to play 3 different times. Let’s hope I don’t grow tired of it before Sunday.
I was rockin’ out to “Call Me Maybe” on repeat while preparing dinner tonight.
The star? The veggie lentil burger I whipped up.
Knowing I wanted something with lentils for dinner, I placed them on the counter this morning to stir up a little inspiration. At first I thought about “sloppy lentils” but wasn’t feeling anything too saucy. The next step was a “lentil burger,” which sounded perfect. After a quick look in the fridge, I came up with the following recipe:
Veggie Lentil Burgers
- 2 cups green lentils (cooked)
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 carrots (shredded)
- 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage
- 2 eggs
- chili powder
- garlic salt
- s & p
Mix everything in a bowl.
Divide into quarters and form into four patties.
If the mix feels a little wet (and the patties aren’t sticking) try adding a bit more flour until it sticks.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
You should be able to flip the patties halfway through.
I served my lentil burger on an english muffin with ketchup and spicy mustard.
The burgers were a smidge dry, but otherwise really flavorful. I was surprised how well they stuck together (way better than any other homemade bean burger I’ve ever attempted) and I liked how the shredded carrot and red cabbage added some great color to the burgers.
I also roasted some rutabaga fries on the side and added a pickle to my plate.
Nothing like an All American burger and fries with a pickle… right?
I had a snack bowl of trail mix this afternoon made up of Wheat Chex Cereal, walnuts, dried fruit, cashews, and peanuts.
For dessert, a serving of almond ice cream with Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Pistachio Toffee.
Derek and I are watching a show called “Million Dollar Rooms.” They just showed a house that had a dedicated ice cream room built to look like an old fashion soda shop. Me want!
If you were to have a “million dollar room,” what you choose? An ice cream room would be pretty high up there, but I think a full gym complete with a personal trainer, lap pool, and full indoor track would be great too.
