They are so darn addicting. I dunk them in coffee, and they melt in the mouth.
Tina says." Yeah! They melt right into your hips and thighs!
and wont let go!"

This batch was vanilla. I like the anisette ones.
I need to order the anisette oil someplace.
Tina bought the flavoring, but it is not as tasty as with the oil.
I like the old way, with the anise seeds, but the kids and tina don't like the flavor. Son Jimmy likes the flavor, but not the seeds. Mad

That looks super good. I would love to make that. I looked on your blogspot, but I didn't find if you posted the recipe! I love beans, and so does Tina.

I remember, when I was in the hospital to see Tina when the baby was born (Maria )... they are Seventh Day Adventist religion, and they made meatless ( they eat no meat ) salisberry steak in gravy, and with potatoes. I loved it! I think it was made with soy beans. Tina made them once, but they were not tight enough!
They were loose and fell apart. Good though!
They sell soy burgers frozen, but not good as making yourself!

I haven't posted it yet.. I thought about sharing the recipe on my blog.. but as you know I'm still using my laptop and I'm so not familiar with uploading pictures and Window 8.. I'll wait until my desktop arrives, maybe next week, and need a few days for learning the new stuff. that's why I did not want to replace mine if I did not have to..

back to the bean burger, I used 1 can of black beans and 1 can of kidney beans, pulsed in FP, not too fine.. I chopped 1/2 medium onion + 2 red jalapeno + 2 cloves of garlic using my FP too.. I mixed with 1 jumbo egg, beat lightly with 2 tbsp of worchestershire sauce, black pepper, mixed all ingredients, added some panko, chopped parsley and green onion, formed 6 patties, I let them chilled in my fridge for 30 minutes before pan fried them with butter and olive oil..
I mixed mayo + mustard + lemon juice + a bit of wasabi ( horseradish ), salt and sugar for the sauce

I toasted the buns, brushed with butter, placed 1 patty on top, added 1 sliced cheese and toasted them to melt the cheese.. brushed the other side of the bun with the sauce, add lettuce then pressed them together.. Dirk love them.. he ate 4 burgers, 2 for lunch and 2 for supper.. we had to go for 3 miles walk to night in order to get rid of the gas caused by beans   lol!

[size=16]Thank You so much for the recipe for the beanburgers.

Whew! I would caution others not to walk behind you and Dirk, and don't light any matches or sparks!

BTW... always remember, Even the Queen passes gas! hahahahahahaha
My grandmother told me that! I said,"And what does the King Do Gram?
She said,"He shoots back at her!...LOL...

When I was last year to get inspected with the scope, the nurse said, How do you feel Jimmy?
I said,"OK, but I feel all puffed up!" She said,"That's normal, because we filled you up with air!"
She said,"Now feel free to pass out the air, and don't worry we encourage it!"

I looked around, and thought to myself, "How can I make this gas pass funny?"
I had the answer! .... I gave a big squeeze, and with my hand and finger, I pointed at the nurse like shooting at the pistol range, and at the same time, she looked at me, and I wen't POW! and a big noise came out!
The nurse was Mad; because I used her as a target! She said,"Jimmy That's uncalled for!
Oh!, I said,"I am so sorry!" "I thought You Were My Wife!" .... "I shoot at her all the time when I have gas!"
She said,"Do I look like your wife?... I said," Not Now You Don't, but the drugs you gave to me to put me to sleep made me see funny!" ....
She said," For a minute, I was going to put the hose back in you, and pump air till you float like a Balloon!" ...... LOL[size]

We had a storm blow through so there was no grilling tonight ~ baked a chicken breast and it came out really tasty. I put some thinly sliced onion under the bone-in breast and baked it (in the toaster oven-less heat in the kitchen). After an hour (give or take) I noticed lots of rich broth and decided to make a bit of gravy....but got it too thick. So, I thinned it out with some half & half.....instant tasty onion sauce to spoon over the sliced chicken. It almost made it taste like a really good pot pie. I made panko coated potato cakes from leftover mashed potatoes. Green beans with some carrot for color finished off our meal.

I made Halushkies today with fried cabbage and onions.



Tina was in Bethlehem, PA; at the Sands Casino. She went with son and DIL and with the church on the bus.
She pulled out her big $45.00 all at the end! No Winners today.

She brought me home a pastrami on rye from the Carnegie Deli restaurant. It was enough pastrami in there for 4 sammiches! I saved some for tomorrow!...

Ah, is there anything so wonderful as 'real' pastrami from a deli where it's been made for a century? Looks like you were a happy camper, my friend!

Yeah! It was good, but a little stringy and fat slap on the lips when eating it. Tina would not like that.
Another thing was...the pastrami was good, but not as good as the one I made with the corned beef.
Mine was more tender.

BTW... I made another batch of the KFC coleslaw that I got the recipe on this forum, and it was different.
We found out the first bag of slaw was from ShopRite and the second bag / batch was from Walmart.
It was god awefull and it was like cabbage scraps. It had red cabbage too, and they chopped up the cores too. Pays to get a better brand of slaw.

It's amazing how much water is produced frm just a small amount of liquid when iy's first made.
I like the juice though. I drink it when the slaw is all gone from my plate. cheers

I used to buy those bags of slaw.Dole I think.Then just decided to use cabbage in stead.Takes no time to slice it then chop.I did the same thing with broccoli slaw.

I buy very few things at WM.

I do the same with slaw....always use a wedge cut from a head of cabbage. It's easy. It's cheap. I don't get the core. Plus, I think it's sweeter when it's fresh cut. I've got Grandma's stand vegetable slicer and it takes about 30 seconds to cut the wedge into angel hair strands.

I buy a lot of things from Walmart but not much produce. Really quite inferior to the other stores. The potatoes are usually soft and shriveled.

The reason buying the bagged....is it is already with the carrots and uniformly thin sliced.
Then there's the ( what to do with the rest of a cabbage. )?

But like Beth said....the lemon really tops off the flavor of the recipe.
I reduced the amount of sugar ( per Tina's request ) and it threw the taste off a bit.

If you are going to make cabbage rolls, blanch and peel off the bigger leaves before you dice up some for slaw.

Supper started off by me frying some kind of new Johnsonvile Patties with cheddar chunks inside! ... Blahhh!! Like rubber soles and Salty as heck!
Ptew! Couldn't chew them... so out they went to the animals.

I thawed some burger ground round and made myself (Tina was not in the mood to eat after the brat burgers) a burger with cheese and thick sliced onion.
Had the coleslaw with it!

1 hour later...Tina put together a Blue tube crust pizza. It was good so I ate three small square slices.

I will have something sweet later on.

It rained here all day, and is still raining.
