I found out the most glorious new on Thursday when I got my foot casted.
Introducing my new waterproof cast! I can take showers (baths), go swimming in the pool and basically get my cast sopping wet and it doesn’t matter one bit! This makes being in a cast slightly more bearable. This cast is much harder than the splint I was wearing before, so it’s kind of uncomfortable. It comes off September 27th though, so I won’t have to wear it for as long as I thought! I took some pictures of my scar, but I’ll spare you. That doesn’t sound like the most appetizing thing to put on a blog about food.
Speaking of food, I made some great veggie burgers this week. Their main ingredient is red potatoes, which was much different than any other veggie burger I’ve had before. I made Emily’s Vegetable Masala Burgers, which are a recreation of Trader Joes’ frozen ones. I’ve never had the famous TJ’s frozen burgers, but apparently they are a hit with a few of the vegetarian bloggers I read. There’s not a TJ’s in Colorado, although that might be changing soon! I think there’s one coming to Boulder soon, and you can bet I’ll be shopping there.
The veggie burger in on top, slathered with ketchup and mustard. I’m not usually a huge fan of ketchup, but it sounded good this week. The potatoes were a great way to hold the burgers together and I also enjoyed the spices. I added a little curry when I made mine and next time I think I will add cumin too. The rest of my plate has bulgur wheat and spaghetti squash on it.
Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. It’s not over yet!
