catchin' up

First, here's the laundry list of tasty eats we had this past week . . .

The black bean burgers from VCON, with sides of roasted sweet potatoes, coleslaw, and the obvious pickle:

Not complete without the pickle, right? :)

Simple pasta and salad:

Whole-wheat penne dressed in my homemade marinara was a huge hit with Dan, as always. I tend to think of pasta w/red sauce as kind of "boring," but it's one of Dan's favorite meals! Who knew?

Red Curry over brown rice:

MMMMMMMMMM . . . spicy delicious! Tofu and tons of veggies made our usual coconut curry extra-special. Yum!

A wheatberry, black bean, and edamame salad we're taking to a potluck tonight:

I only sampled a bite of this earlier, but I was impressed by how a few quality ingredients combined to make something so tasty! Score.

Do you like the black bean burgers from VCON? Is it a good recipe?

PS and no--no burger is complete without a pickle!
