*above, is a picture of Spinach burgers that were absolutely fantastic!! I'll share that recipe another day :)
But....for some reason, the last few dinners have fallen a little flat. Monday night's barley risotto was undercooked, as were the steamed broccoli and zucchini. Last night's black bean and quinoa burgers were not staying together on the pan, and just didn't want to cook right. I always get so sad face when my meal isn't just right. I really want Tony to be impressed with whatever I made that night. I want to feel a sense of accomplishment for cooking a damn fine meal- annddddd making it healthy too. I realize that not all dinners will be a home run, but goodness...it sure makes me feel bad when the meal didn't even get to first base. You know whadda mean??
*Above is a picture of the HORRIBLE mashed cauliflower that I made! (the steak was great, though.)
One time I made mashed cauliflower (which is usually amazing, by the way) and I put in far to much garlic. Holy MACARONI....it was actually uneatable. It was like eating straight Horseradish. Tony, like the good sport that he is, just said..."hmmmm...this is quite, uhhh, POTENT." I laughed for about ten minutes.
Here is the point of my post. Not all meals have to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. It's important that I keep trying to make my very best meals, and over the years- I'm sure I will perfect a bunch of yummy, healthy recipes :)
(Also, I make a pretty mean Rice Cereal dish...not a lot of flavor, but LOADS of love :)
