Since I have recently turned vegetarian, wonder if it would be good with out the burger. Maybe soy meat crumbles??

Patti, our one daughter is vegetarian, sh does use eggs, milk, cheese and butter, but she gets some kind of soy meat (fake meat) and uses in place of the ground beef.

Made me hungry. I guess I will go grab a Fiber bar. A Congress. LOL That post was priceless just as the bird photo with the male holding the beak of the female.Been catching up around the house and going to the Y. Boy it sure takes more effort to take it off than to pack it on. Whew. The diet and exercise change are for my health nothing can help the outer appearance of a fur ball kitty. Have a wonderful weekend.

You just ruined my dinner plans for tonight..."Shame on you Patty" ha ha ha

Now I am no longer in the mood for my lemon Chicken Salad with a side of a Baked potatoe and peaches.

Sure looks really good though.
