It’s fall…

See that?  Beer and football.  It’s now fall.

My fiance is the first guy I’ve ever dated who’s truly a sports fan.  It’s a little different, and I think especially now that we live together football season is going to take some adjustments.

We had a very all-American meal last night.  Burgers and corn, plus of course the beer and football.  Except mine was a veggie burger, and the corn was in it, with a salad on the side.

I love the homemade veggie burgers.  If you haven’t made one, try it.  They make my tummy feel happy.  All I did was take part of a can of black beans, some spices (garlic, cumin, black pepper), crushed up crackers (they were out, you could do bread crumbs or flour too), and some egg.  I put raw corn in mine, and it gives it a yummy crunch.

Mixed all up (I mashed the beans before I added the rest), and fried in a pan. This was somewhere under 2/3 of a can of beans, and it make about 2 burgers worth.

Since Andrea brought up how blogging affects your eating/people around you I should add that my fiance is seriously really scared that at some point I am going to stop eating meat.  He’s ok with the bean burgers because it means he gets a normal one, but I think he’s fearful of the day he comes home from work to find tofu for dinner.  (Which won’t happen-I have a texture thing and I can’t do tofu-no matter how it’s prepared the texture just weirds me out)

We had crack cake for dessert.  I really think it needs more crack.

But the nectarines made it look so pretty on the sides.

A few people have asked how the Dave’s bread is-my fiance (who doesn’t always like good for you foods as much as I do) loves it, but is disappointing that Dave didn’t kill anyone.  He said the name is misleading.  But he’s a fan-and he was quite impressed with the nutrition stats on the bread.   Annnnnd if you’re in PDX check out what’s in the Tribune
