I’m not a vegetarian. I have an aversion to red meat, or anything that has pink in it, but I eat chicken… and pork, and a good ham, or lunch meat. I eat a ton of eggs too. Definitely not Vegan.
So why am I talking about veggie burgers? Duuuude… do you know how many calories are in a burger? Me either, but I know there were only 60 calories in this burger patty.
So, we pulled out the George Foreman. Let me tell you, if I have more than 2 square feet of counter space, I would use this thing EVERY DAY! But… I don’t, in fact, I might have less than two feet of counter space. Regardless… I forgot to spray the thing before putting my veggie patties down, so I got this:
But they turned out okay.
I say okay because I may have cooked them too long, and they were a little bit tough, but now I know how to cook them. So, it should be better in the future. And now, onto what I REALLY wanted to share with you. I was so excited when I accidentally did this the first time, but now I think it’s awesome.
You will need: A cold beverage (I like to do this in Mountain Dew, but if you have something against caffine it can be done in water or sprite or what ever liquid you want to use (probably not pulpy orange juice though. Just warning you). You will also need frozen, no sugar added, whole strawberries.
Poor your drink, and add the strawberries. I tend to drink my whole drink before I head in on the strawberries because I like to use a fork on them.
And there are two options really, let it sit for a while until your drink it strawberry flavored, or drink up the liquid and get these beauties! Yup, mountain dew covered strawberries. (Oh… I drink Diet Mountain Dew… the caffine keeps me awake for my homework, and it’s no calores!).
Any way, I think they are just so pretty. Have the little shell on them some how softens the frozen berries really quickly too. They are ready for consumption!
So, I know, it’s not a real recipe, but I think it is pretty cool… or at least it looks cool! (PS: The class this is in, with the pretty red sticker on them… we only have four left – because B-man has managed to break a few of them. So… it may be time to buy new cups.)
And tastes good.
ALSO!!!! B-man said it’s ok for me to start my eclectic dishes collection, and buy some appetizer plates (since he’s broken a bunch of ours). Any suggestions?
