I’m Trying to Like You…Veggie Burger But I Can’t

I feel like we are moving too fast.

Maybe we should take it slow?

Was is something I did?

Was it something I said?

Can we try to be friends?

FUCK NO!

I’ve tried to season you. I’ve tried a different brand. I’ve tried to make us spicy.

I tried to dress you up. I’ve tried to make it work but…I simply can’t.

“It’s not you…it’s me!”

Wild Rice Vegetable Soup

I’m trying to expand my palate and make veggies sexy again. LOL! I know. Nothing like a corny ass joke to try to buy time before I express how I really feel.

The soup…second attempt to make a healthy conscious soup that may stick to my bones.

This shit wasn’t it! At least not for me! Wild rice is up on that list with Brussels sprouts. The soup was OK. I would make it again without the wild rice. The recipe called for squash, cannelloni beans, celery, bay leaves, onion, and vegetable stock all in the crock pot. Six hours later…the vegetables were still fucking hard so I left it cooking. 10 hours later…soup! Wild rice and all!

Now out of all people in my damn house, I expected to be in love with the soup and to be the only one to like it. I didn’t expect my husband to like the soup. So…I guess since he liked it I might make it again but maybe with some brown rice.

The final product.

The kale is added last and I added some fresh cracked pepper.

Eggplant Parm

Another edition of recipes that I’ve tried. I want to become a full time vegan but I can’t be selfish. This was the first time I tried eggplant and veggie spaghetti. Soooo…let’s break this down.

Eggplant is a pain in the ass to prepare. I didn’t know I had to salt it, flatten it to get the water out, etc. After I dried it, I of course wet it back up. Go figure. For a second I felt like I was living in a oxymoron moment. Any who! The eggplant didn’t taste to bad.

The veggie spaghetti started off tasty while it was piping hot but as it cooled so did it’s flavor. Needless to say, I gobbled the shit up quick.

Overall, the meal was good. I would give it a 5 out of 10. I can’t say that it will go into heavy rotation but I will eat this shit again in a month or so after I’m tired of trying new vegan shit. Sadly, I’m having eggplant again tomorrow. Wait to you see this shit I got planned for tomorrow.

If you want the recipe you got to hit me in the comments.

Vegan Burrito Bowls

I’m not on a challenge or anything but I am very interested in becoming a vegan. Overall a plant based diet might be better for me long term, however we will get to that bullshit on a different day.

I’ve made a few tasty vegan dishes that didn’t have me missing any meat. I took pictures. I may start posting the recipes if I love them.

My crazy ass thought that Spicy Garlic Brussel Sprouts would be a yummy side. 😖😣☹️. I do not like Brussel sprouts. I repeat I do not like Brussel sprouts. This is not a DRILL. Hell to the nah!!! Bad…bad…bad! (I’m not knocking those that like em, IJS)

I thought I would attempt to eat them with a grown up palate and they were an epic fail taste wise. I can however point out that I did at least try. Oven Roasted Garlic Brussel Sprouts Needless to say the meal was simple to make. I had to put a little bit of soul into it because the recipes called for no additional spices…BUT…honey, I don’t do bland!
