Snow Day #4

Wahoo! We are on our 4th snow day of the season! Even though I miss out on a day of work, since I work at school, it all works out because of the nearly $4/gal gas prices. Today's snow day was brought to us by the letter I for ice! 40 degrees at 2am and then BAM 30 degrees just 2 hours later. All the rain that fell instantly froze. I am curious to see if all the doors of my van are frozen like last week's bout of freezing rain. On the agenda for later today are chiseling my van and heading up to parent/teacher conferences which so far are still on.

Veggie Burgers, anyone?

BzzAgent invited me to join their campaign for Morningstar Farms Veggie Burgers. Since we are eating healthier, and Jeff is wanting to incorporate a more plant based diet, I gladly joined. This week we tried the Spicy Black Bean burger and it was delicious. It has a different texture than regular burgers. There were pieces of black beans, corn, and onion. The only think I didn't like were the onion pieces, but that is because I don't care for onion. Everyone else loved them, and I did like the flavor, just not the few onion bits in it. The flavor reminded me of some organic refried black beans we have had in the past. We cooked them on the George Foreman grill and served them on whole wheat sandwich thins. I do recommend trying them, and if you don't like spicy (they weren't burn your mouth spicy though), they have several other flavors to try. I found them on sale for 3/$10 this week, and each box has 4 burgers in it. Otherwise the regular price at my local store was $3.99.
