I Need New Shoes

Happy Hump Day!!!! Ok so a few things.. 1. my previous post title was named American Prankster for a reason! 2. I would never get a random tattoo from people I don't know! 3. It was airbrushed on.... tee-hee!!! No one got the joke! : )
I'll let this one slide for now! lol

Well I don't have much for you all today but I wanted to give you something! I'm a giver, not a taker..
I tried these thingies a little while back and I was wondering if I should put a review up or not- well now here we go- I think I will!

They look good huh?? I loved the small ingredient list and how nothing was artifical or processed. From the sound of it they just chopped up veggies and put them in a burger press and packed them up!
Here is a look at what's in them:
Carrots, Onions, String Beans, Zucchini, Soybeans, Peas, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Spinach, Broccoli, Corn, Red Peppers, Potato Flakes, Arrowroot, Corn Meal, Corn Starch, Garlic, Salt, Parsley, Pepper
Yummy sounding right?

Here is what it really looked like out of the box.. it looks like a Spinach bruger! I was still pretty happy about trying it so I heated it up and dug in.
PHHHFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!! WTF WAS THAT?!!!!
Has anyone tried these things???? Does anyone actually eat them????
When in doubt cover it in ketchup...

Still nothing, I tossed it when it was about half gone. It made me very sad to do so. So sad, I brought one to work a few days later, had our caf chef "grill" it for me and I covered it in BBQ sauce. Something about the taste just gave me the heebie-jeebies. Maybe it was TOO veggie tasting for me??

FAIL! : ( I'm sorry Dr. Praeger's! I support your healthy eating mission, but I won't be buying these again!

I'm not quite sure what my posting will be like in the next couple of days, it is end of quarter over here at work and we are literally racing against time to get all orders processed, shipped, etc. And they have to be correct. Go figure! Ha!

Things to chew on:
1. I am still working on a routine for the Jay-Z album
2. I cry everytime I hear the song on the album "Young Forever" (anyone else??)
3. My health insurance at work is changing. Apparently, it will "greatly benefit" me.
4. Because of the above thought, I have decided my part time job will probably be an exotic dancer and not a salsa teacher like I've always dreamed about.
5. Because of the second above thought I think I should invest in some new shoes.

  1. Ah man, Young Forever--great stuff. But about that burger, uh, not so great stuff. Just the look is enough to put me off.

  3. haha, I've heard everyone raving how good these veggie burgers are. Finally someone says they aren't. Now I'm going to have to find out for myself. I've noticed around the blog world ppl do have them loaded with condiments. Maybe they are deceiving themselves form the taste! lol

  5. You know I'm going to work on my stash of singles now!

    Thank goodness on the tat... I was like woah!

    I like their TexMex burgers but I've never tried those. Too bad because they really aren't cheap. I'd suggest using them in something- like defrosting one and maybe mashing up some beans, BBQ sauce and such and turning it into two "homemade" burgers? Maybe?

  10. LOL I definitely didn't catch on that it was a joke :P But I DID think that it was crazy that it could look that nice right away and that you would just randomly decide to get it done at a fair :P

    Nice shoes :P
