Chili Burgers on Whole Wheat Buns
Good weather is here! We went out to Woodside and rode our bikes today during Bicycle Sunday. We stopped at the Water Temple during our ride and had a picnic, which was a nice break. Filoli is apparently open on Sunday now, which means that if you want to ride the whole Bicycle Sunday route, you're sharing the road with cars for 1/3 of it. I didn't enjoy that--I'm still a bike wuss. It's too bad, because the ride is kind of short if you turn around at Filoli. Overall it was still a good morning. I hadn't been on my bike in over a year. Shame!
Patrick made us some good banana waffles for breakfast this morning, and for dinner I made chili burgers (topped with fontina, baby spinach and tomatoes) on homemade whole wheat hamburger buns with oven fries on the side. The burger and fry recipes were both from Moosewood Low-Fat Favorites.
The burgers were pretty good. They certainly didn't taste like meat, but I enjoyed them. I liked how the buns turned out, though they were a little smaller than I'd intended. The fries tasted good right out of the oven, but they lost their crispness pretty quickly. But still yummy!
