Burgers and stir Fry's

Sloppy Veggie Burger

This was our lunch today.. I took the leftover Sloppy Joes, mixed it with oatmeal, vital wheat gluten and some breadcrumbs and cooked them for several minutes a side in my cast iron skillet. I used Vegan Gourmet jack, tomatoes, mustard, relish and iceberg lettuce. Yee-haw! On the side is a slaw I made from daikon, cabbage, red onion and carrots, leftover from the other night. The trick to eating leftover slaw is to dress it very lightly and not salting it until you're ready to eat it.

The Good Stir Fry

Here's the pic of dinner last night. I wrote about it in my last post. I'm not happy with my pictures, I'm not sure if it's my new crappy monitor, but theylook really dark and it annoys me. I guess I should figure out how to use Photoshop.

I'm not sure what we're doing for dinner tonight. We'll probably have leftovers and I'll make a big salad. I need to clear out my fridge because on Wednesday I'm making a trip to Trader Joes! I live around 70 miles from one, so I don't go often. I sooo wish they would open one up near me.

  1. "the good stir fry" - it sure looks like it fits the name!

    Yowza!!! The burgers must have been soooooo good. They look very hearty and filling, totally healthy. I love burgers made out of almost anything (non-animal of course).

    TRADER JOE'S! Sorry you have to travel so far for yours... maybe you could suggest to them that they open one closer to you??

  2. Burger looks good. I’ve been meaning to have a go at making my own burgers, but the frozen ones in the box are just so darned convenient. Stir fry looks yummy too. That really is too bad that you have to go so far to get to a TJ’s, I’m lucky to have one conveniently located on my drive home from work. BTW – those pictures of your dog and son are adorable :)

  3. Melody, your pictures look fine to me. Not dark at all. I'm a burger fan and what you did with yours sounds yum!
    I've never been to Trader Joe's. I'm pretty sure there aren't any in Canada....yet. Enjoy your trip. I'm very jealous.

  8. aaah...the good ol days where ihad to drive 20 miles to the nearest trader joes. i made that trip with great glee and anticipation too!

    now it's down the street and i hardly ever go. only becuase i always need something at a regular store which means two trips. and in 500 degree heat, who wants to do that!

    i'm making your kimchee recipe tonight. i LOVE kimchee
