What an amazing party it was the other night! Since then, I’ve been so busy with projects I haven’t made it back here until now. I’ve been doing some editing, knitting, crocheting, decorating and filling orders for my Etsy shop. But I’m here now to tell you all about our little burger mishap.
Literate Zombie and I successfully made black bean burgers during MoFo. You remember, right? The dinner with the homemade Chipotle ketchup and jalapeño buns? Anyhow, we tried to recreate the same meal only subbing in black eyed peas for the black beans and Yucca for the sweet potato fries.
Second go-round…not so good. The black eyed peas gave it an excellent flavor but the texture and consistency was extremely different from the black beans. They just didn’t hold together well at all. The Yucca fries were not quite done, making bits of them non-edible. We boiled and then baked them as suggested by the recipe, but it turned out to be a case of the close-but-no-cigar variety.
We didn’t finish the burgers that night so I suggested throwing the leftovers into the cast iron skillet with some Earth Balance, almost like a grilled cheeze sandwich. It was much better this way!
We’re kind of on hiatus for now as it’s the busy season for Zombie Hand Productions and our ukulele band is currently writing/recording. But, I’ll be back here and there with pics and stories and attempts at greatness in the kitchen!
