Tipsy Twist

10 comments

Greetings on this Fabulous Valentine’s Day Eve! :D

Ok, I have probably completely alienated those readers who despise Valentine’s Day because I can’t shut up about it! I just love holidays….all of them. I even get excited for St. Patty’s Day (oh just wait to see all the green monsters then!!).

I have barely left the kitchen all day today (my kind of day!), except for a beautiful stroll outside in the sunshine (video to come!). We had such a beautiful day today and it felt so good to get outside for some fresh air.

Do you see who I see??

I could not stop laughing when I turned around and saw Sketchie watching me from inside the house!! This cat doesn’t miss a beat I tell you. He is too cute. He sat there the whole time I was outside. LOL.

There is a ravine behind our house…it sounds gorgeous in the spring when the water is moving fast:

My afternoon snacks:

A serving of Amy’s Organic Crackers:

A small scoop of homemade hummus (I made another batch- this one was even better. I will post recipe soon)

YUM!

Dinner:

After seeing Kath’s Black Bean Burgers last night, I finally found an awesome way to use the can of black bean that has been sitting in my lazy ‘suz, leaving me scratching my head wondering how the heck I was going to use it up.

And boy, did this recipe deliver! I still can’t get over how easy it was!

I didn’t have a couple of the ingredients, so I gave mine a Tipsy Twist :D

I doubled Kath’s recipe to make 4 burgers so I could eat them all weekend!

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • fresh black pepper
  • sprinkle of salt
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tsp. EVOO
  • 2 Tbsp Tipsy Whiskey BBQ Sauce

This was my first time having this BBQ sauce and it was AH-mazing! It gave these burgers such a sweet kick!

My plate:

tomato slice + 1/2 avocado + 2 piece whole wheat bread + bean patty =

I also snacked on another 1/3 of a patty after dinner. They were that good!

DELICIOUS!

I cannot emphasize enough how awesome this black bean burger was- and how easy! Thanks Kath. :D

For dessert:

A tiny slice of my Brown Sugar Banana Bread:

I made the boys M&M Meats BBQ Wings and Garlic Pan Fries:

I had 4-5 pan fries and no wings (not my thing)

They gobbled it all up!

Those black bean burgers look so delish! I always order black bean burgers at Chili’s because I don’t eat ground beef, but I can never find anything like it at the grocery store. Now I can make my own and I can’t wait to try it. Keep up the good work posting, love it!
