The best thing I ever ate.

Yesterday was stuffed full of work stuff.......and I couldn't get into the chiropractor again.  Today's the day.  It better be.  I ended up working too late to head to the FCA camp in Lakeland but Camille sent me the minute by minute updates.  One of my girls ended up bringing her guitar and led worship, so sweet.

A friend gave me a recipe recommendation and for the first time in the cooking history of my kitchen, I followed the recipe.  Almost.  I added pecans instead of walnuts and I altered the amount of rice and lentils because I wasn't adding eggs.  And I didn't pan fry them, I baked them.  So almost followed it.  But this may have been the best thing I've ever eaten.  Still reigning supreme is the Quinoa Beet burger at Cheesecake Factory (I know, just a cozy little spot) but this beet burger was so close.  It was so good.  If you have a food processor, you should make these.  Also, I know I put beets in my juicer pretty regularly, but I don't like beets.  And I was nervous.  Even after the burgers were plated I was scared.  Don't be.  Make these.

Smoky Beet Burgers from Sprouted Kitchen

Hopefully their beet-y powers will fuel the super fun weekend we have planned.  We have friends coming in for an epic slumber party, beer tastin', river floating, and belly aching laughing.  And I got a super craving for a Moscow Mule so come around these parts around midnight tomorrow and at least I'll sound like I'm having a really great time.  Cheers!
