One Year Down…​Thank You For Giving Me A Chance

It has officially been 1 year since I started this particular blog and I have been welcomed into the blog world with open arms. I have to admit that every time I write something I second guess myself. I wonder if it’s interesting enough to get you to come back and view another post. I always try to just be myself and that alone is scary.

I remember when I first started my blog I was approached by a well known public figure and he gave me THE BEST pointer. He told me if I wanted my blog to be successive then I had to remain truthful to myself. Choose topics that hit me deep in my core and then just go. Talk the way I do every day, and make sure my personality is present at all times. When he told me this I said well what if people don’t like me or what I have to say?

He responded, “Do you have friends”? “Do they like to engage with you”? “After 17 years does your husband still like you and engage with you”? But most importantly “Do you like you and find yourself interesting”? I thought fair enough!

So here we go! My content is going to be bananas this year, filled with food, diets, crafts, workouts, real talk, and my Life. I am elated to welcome you all to my world.

I know that there are thousands and thousands of blogs that you could have joined or read but you chose mine and I’m honored!

Rae’s Veggie 🍔

Oh my do I have a treat for all of you. Let me begin by saying this, my daughter decided that she no longer wanted chicken beef pork or anything else besides seafood. So I had to step out of my comfort zone and learn how to make vegetarian meals and this one is a winner.

I have mixed and matched all types of ingredients together to make my veggie burger and I haven’t been satisfied until now. I mean you know I want to eat a veggie burger without knowing its a veggie burger. My daughter really enjoyed eating a good beef burger but she hated the way it made her feel. So, with me being the best mom ever (self-proclaimed)I had to try to make this veggie taste like beef.

Since there are three other people in my household that would prefer beef, this meal worked out perfect.

As I prepared my veggie burgers the beef burgers were cooking on a low to medium heat. That’s trick number one!

Trick number two is to cook your veggie burgers in the same pan that you cooked your beef burgers. Let the oil from the beef sink into your veggie burger.

Please watch the video below and let’s get started.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can black beans
  • 2 cups corn
  • 2 cups of veggie mix
  • Black pepper
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • Guacamole
  • Hawaiian rolls
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Pickles

Makes 6 burgers

In your food processor mix black beans and veggie mix.In a large bowl mix ingredients from the food processor, corn, egg, and seasonings. Form your patties and place on a medium temperature. Cook each side for 10-15 minutes. Add a little barbecue sauce and flip one more time. Then add guacamole on top and of course a few pickles!
