More Pasta, Bean Burgers, Stir-fry, Ah...tomatoes

Sorry to group so many meals together, but life with a full time job, training for a tri, swim lessons for a 4-year old, and physical therapy leaves me with little time for blogging.

First up: Pinto Bean Burgers. Had the neighbors over for dinner on Saturday. Cooked up some of the leftover tri-tip from the freezer ("reheated") and grilled some chicken. Made homemade corn tortillas, homemade refried beans, guacamole, and some veggies.

The beans were tasty but dry. Enter: the bean burger. They were perfect to just shape into patties and fry up for lunch the next day. And vegan! Until I added the cheese on top.

Next up: stir-fry from the leftover meat, with frozen mixed veggies from Costco. I think these were about $8 for 5 lbs, but I'm not exactly sure. They are quite good for frozen veggies, with carrot, red pepper, water chestnuts, sugar snap peas, green beans, snow peas, broccoli, onion, and mushrooms. Served this over a mixture of brown rice and red quinoa.

Which leads me to tomatoes: finally getting them from the CSA, this was my breakfast one morning. That's goat cheese under the 'mater.

And on to...more pasta. This with pesto, meatballs, asparagus, and zucchini. Delicious!
