Sliders are cute

I know some hardcore food people will say my mini black bean burgers are not actually sliders, but I’m sure you all get the idea. I just took my usual bean burger recipe and made them smaller. Slap them on a tiny bun and they are somehow more delicious.

This picture is also with my new camera. Sorry, it’s all I’ve taken so far for those of you demanding new camera pics.

Black Bean Burgers

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 onion chopped up
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • taco seasoning

I whirl all this in a food processor, form whatever size patties and then bake them in a 400 degree oven for about 10-15 mins a side.

New point and shoot

After a few too many grainy, blurry shots of my little nephew, I realized it was time for a camera upgrade.  Here’s one shot I managed to snag on the new model last night after the battery charged and before the sun set.

Yes, the kitty still loves to camp in his kitty tent.

Two months, two days away

The big birthday is steadily approaching.  Perhaps it’s time to consider a few lifestyle tweaks for my next decade.  You know, to fit in better with the other folks my age.

What did everybody else do (or plan to do) when they crossed the 30 line?

Sheep shearing festival

What else to do on a gorgeous spring day but go to the sheep shearing festival!

The shorn sheep were quite soft, as Laura and Katie found out.

The before picture.

I also saw some talented herding dogs and a 9 day old goat.

Faux holidays — the sucking of

Yeah, that’s an official LC Subject Heading.

Just a note on Boston and its fake stupid Patriot’s Day.

Some of us had to work today. MBTA claimed to be running a Saturday schedule, but I waited more than 30 minutes on each end of my commute.

So, Boston, you can take your holiday and shove it.  Those of us north of the river would like to just go about our business if we don’t get to stay home.

Man, I was gonna do dishes tonite in those 30 minutes.

Accidentally went to the Red Sox

Katie scored some sweet tickets to yesterday’s game late in the afternoon. With such a spontaneous trip to Fenway, I had no fan gear. What? I’m wearing a cap? Um . . . well, the tickets were free and I really needed to wear something in support of the team, so I may have also accidentally swung by the team shop on the way in.

Luckily it was a beautiful warm night. Plus, the Red Sox won!

New glasses

I haven’t gotten a new pair of glasses since moving east. So it was definitely time to get with the program.

Scarfer

The Revolution provided scarves for the home opener.

They also provided a win.

Thank you and thank you, Revs.

Two in a row

One more win for Sounders FC. I was hoping for three goals, but it was still a great game.

Today I spent some time with little Crosby. I’ve renamed him Pocket Kitty. I just tuck him under my arm and go about my business.

Walking the halls

Grandma Linda and I took Oliver for a little stroll through the hallways.
