I forgot to tell you that I had a really good veggie burger over the weekend at Zinburger. Do you have a Zinburger near you?
What I really liked about this veggie burger was that it was nicely well done and crispy on the outside, didn’t seem to contain filler and was loaded with veggies.
Just like when you order regular burgers at Zinburger, you can add toppings so I ordered my veggie burger with sautéed mushrooms and onion rings. My veggie burger came with two onion rings. My son snagged one of them before I could stop him. I am still angry with him. He kept saying that I would be laughing about it in six hours. It has been six days and I am not laughing, in fact, I am still yelling at him about it with a serious face. The two small French fries you see on my place are there because I grabbed them from his plate after the onion ring situation occurred.
I don’t often eat veggie burgers aside from the occasional Dr. Praeger’s Veggie Burgers which I heat up at home but now I feel like getting crafty and making my own. I went through the veggie burger recipes I have pinned to my vegetarian recipes board on pinterest so here are the pins that I narrowed down to possibly peruse for making this weekend:
In reality I will probably just browse all of the ingredients and make up my own recipe for a veggie burger but I still like the inspiration.
I needed to do a major Trader Joe’s grocery shop yesterday not just because I had my own extensive list but because my son complained that we had no food in the house.
The usual stuff including some extra snacks:
- Mini Mint Ice Cream Mouthfuls < – My son loves these, I do not like chocolate mint!
- Fig Bites < – Like a fig newton
- Chocolate Cat Cookies < – Always have a container in my pantry
- Chocolate Fiberful Granola Bars
- Jumbo Raisins
- Low Calorie Pink Lemonade < – because I had a dream the night before that I bought it so I just had to 🙂
- Mini Dark & Milk Chocolate Bars
Our weeknight meal planning recently got easier because my son decided he is now obsessed with taco bowls for dinner which I make with either ground turkey or shredded chicken. I feel like everyone makes this dish already but if you want me to share my basic recipe in a later post, please let me know and I will!
I rarely make Mexican-flavored vegetarian meals for myself, did you know that? I just don’t crave it. I know, I am weird.
Now that he requests his taco bowls for dinner a few nights a week, I am not stressing his end of the meal planning which is my most stressful end. Me? I am good with a power bowl so in combination with that and maybe making a veggie burger, dinner is loosely set for the week.
I do like the looks of a lot of the recipes I saw this week, especially the vegan sloppy joe’s below. I can definitely see myself making those as they fit my requirements – meatless, limited amount of ingredients and really easy!

And because I have six bananas about to be way too overripe, I may make my peanut butter & banana protein bites!
