Some information on this award itself: “Food Stories is pleased to present the Illuminating Blogger Award, a fabulous award that anyone can bestow on their fellow bloggers for illuminating, informative blog content.” I am very touched that Fae thinks of my blog as illuminating!
I am supposed to share one random fact about myself so I must admit that I watch the show Dance Moms every week! It is about the Abby Lee Dance Company featuring crazy-good dance girls and their even crazier moms. It is drama.packed. We sit down to watch the new episode after long days to be entertained. My mom doesn’t particularly care for the show, but laughs along with it. This is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine and get many laughs out of it.
My five nominations are:
Since this is a food blog, I feel I must share SOME kind of meal with you. Mondays have been dedicated to Burgers, mostly being veggie-burgers. So far, all of them have been homemade and this week’s was no exception. We made these Red Lentil Rice-Cakes with a tomato salsa from all of the fresh produce we are overloaded with.
The cakes themselves were good, but not great. I thought they were a little too dense with both the rice and lentils. Something was missing from them, but I can’t put my finger on it. Lemon maybe?
I can’t believe I am getting to the point where I can eat raw tomatoes. Every year it seems like whatever the garden produces the most of, I start to like a lot; last year, it was zucchini and this year tomatoes. Well I guess that garden fresh produce DOES taste the best!
