An unlikely combination.

I am a huge fan of Morningstar Veggie Burgers, and not just their plain veggie burgers, also their black bean burgers, and their mushroom burgers.  Mr. WA and I love to have the mushroom burgers on an everything sandwich thin with a wedge of Laughing Cow swiss cheese spread, and mushrooms and onions grilled with worceshire sauce and lemon juice.  YUM.

I have been a fan of these burgers for a long time.  My mom and I used to eat the black bean ones a lot when I lived at home.  And I’ve been making them a lot recently, but I had forgotten the combination my mom and I used to make with them, until this week.  We put blue cheese dressing on a the black bean burger with some alfalfa sprouts and thinly sliced onion.

It’s so delicious.  I highly recommend it.

Do you have any unlikely food combinations that turn out to taste good, unexpectedly?

A few of my favorite things…

In the spirit of Oprah (boo hoo, I miss her so much this fall!!), I wanted to do a post of some of my favorite things.  These favorite things are a few foods that I like to eat often.  They are staples in my kitchen.  Now, there are many staples in my kitchen, so today I am just going to over four of them.

It is appropriate that my favorite things this time are food because I am insatiable this week as far as hunger goes! In fact, I am seriously contemplating going to bed right now so that I don’t eat any more today!  Oh well, tomorrow is a new day.

The first thing is these Sweet Potato Chips.  They are extremely low in sodium, and taste delicious.  Their Weight Watchers points plus value isn’t great, but it is enough to satisfy the want to crunch something that tastes salty.

My next favorite thing is Thomas’ Everything Bagel Thins.  I love everything bagels, and these are delicious.   They are 3 Points Plus on Weight Watchers, and I use them with sandwiches, or sometimes I just spread a Laughing Cow cheese wedge on them.  They are also good toasted to make an egg sandwich.

Next, something I discovered only in the last year from reading Kath Youngers blog, http://www.katheats.com/, and that is Sunbutter.  It is peanut butter made from sunflower seeds.  I love it on EVERYTHING.  It’s good in oatmeal, on bread, on bagel thins, on pancakes, with a few chocolate chips, and with apples.  If you like sunflower seeds, TRY IT!

I love graham crackers, and these graham sticks are DELICIOUS.  I like to eat them plain, or crumble a few of them in yogurt or on ice cream.

And lastly, my latest obsession that I am having a hard time resisting at any time of day… Bob Harper has been trying to get us all to eat these for months, now.  Quaker Oatmeal Squares Cereal.  YUM.  They have a lot of fiber, and not a lot of fat, and a LOT of flavor.  Sometimes I eat my smoothie in a bowl, and then I put something crunchy in it, and yesterday, it was this cereal.  Now, that is all I can think about at night…my breakfast the next morning with these Quaker Oatmeal Squares!  I go through phases with food, a LOT, and so my favorites are always changing.  It’s not like I stop liking them, they just find their way out of my daily diet.  Well, as of right now, I am so glad these little pieces of deliciousness found their way into my kitchen!!

Well, that is all for now!

What are some of your favorite foods right now?
