I was mad that the plan for dinner was ruined. I was mad that I wasted food. This week, tonight, was my redemption day.
I think they sound delicious. After much assurance from me that the burgers would taste good last week to Mr. J, I still think he did a little secret dance when the potatoes went bad. He later saw a copy of the recipe and said he thought they sounded good.
Comments like these make me so mad – clearly I like to plan gross sounding meals right? Anyway, I think this remark was to make me feel a bit better after being a failure for dinner.
Fast forward to this week, Mr. J and I are eating lunch.
Mr. J: What’s for dinner tonight?
Me: The white bean burgers from last week.
Mr. J: Oh? (Crestfallen look on his face)
Me: Yes, they will be good.
Mr. J: So will they taste like meat?
Me: I don’t think so, it would be pretty hard to make white beans and potatoes taste like ground beef.
Mr. J: You better really season those suckers up though. (He said this laughing so at least he was in good spirits.)
Disclaimer: This is my interpretation of the conversation and I am 100% sure of it word for word accuracy, although I am sure I will be informed shortly of misquoting. )
The results: They were good. Mr. J decided after adding a fried egg on his that this would be the perfect side dish for breakfast, a mini potato pancake if you will.
