Homemade Hamburgers


Some of the things that made me happy this week were homemade hamburgers (they almost
always do), sister time, mother, lively family conversations, the knowledge Ina May Gaskin has shared from her experiences, good books, and libraries of course!  Oh, and making more progress on the surprise present!

Sweet Fuji {Wrap #11}

-1 tortilla
-1 fuji apple (only 3-4 slices used per wrap)
-hummus (I used the one pictured)
-2 dates (I used pitted deglet dates, which I cut in half)
-2-3 slices swiss cheese (I used some delicious imported swiss, which had a stronger flavor than the swiss I'm used to)

This time I purchased all of my ingredients at Sprouts, to take advantage of all the deals they were having recently!
Same as usual, apply the hummus, followed by the cheese then the apple and dates. Serve with raw almonds on the side to add a little more crunch! 

I'm always so happy at how easy it is to throw these together!

A Morning Walk

"A portrait of family, once a week, every week, for a year."
This morning on my walk with mother she picked some flowers she's been admiring and when I asked her what she was going to do with them since she was on her way to work, she handed them to me. So I asked her what I was supposed to do with them seeing as I was on my way to work as well, and she replied with her most mischievous kiddie giggle, "practice being a mommy!" Hee hee, I love her humor :)

Tester {Wrap #10}

I didn't go to work on Monday, and started walking back and forth from it (about an hour each way) the rest of the week so I've been physically exhausted and very sleepy as of late. I hope I get use to the exercise soon and I also hope to test out this wrap next week. I am lacking very much in supplies this week so I've written down a recipe guideline that I'm planning on trying out after I go shopping this weekend. Here goes:

-1 tortilla (or replace with leaves)
-Salt & Pepper
-Beans (Great Northern or Fava)
-Cheese (Not sure yet)
-Greens (Kale or Lettuce)

As always, lay out tortilla, place the ingredients inside in whichever order you prefer and wrap it up!

Throwing this together should be pretty straightforward, especially if using canned beans, which I plan on doing!
