Vegetarian Burger

Vegetarian Burger

I have not posted a blog for a long time, and i can assure i can give any number of excuses, but i think that it was a bit of laziness, a bit of lack of inspiration and a bit of lack of photograhic material. My helper has been on leave for the past 3 weeks and i have been preparing our dinners late and with the lack of organisation and therefore did not take any pictures. Yesterday i decided that i will plan my dinner preparion better and ensure that i take some pictures & Voila here is our “Healty Vegetarian Burger Dinner” from last night.
