Awesome Veggie Burgers And A Call For Questions

I’m thrilled to announce that I have found the perfect veggie burger!  I’ve probably tried about 20 different recipes over the years (plus several kinds of packaged veggie burgers, which are way too expensive to have on a regular basis).  Earlier this week, I wrote about the excellent burger buns that I made, and how they needed to be paired with excellent veggie burgers.  I don’t know why I hadn’t already seen Angela’s fantastic veggie burgers, because I make something from her site about once a week.  But thanks to your recommendations, I whipped up a batch of burgers yesterday.  The recipe made enough for two meals for the three of us (huge bonus – I love having something in the fridge ready to go when it’s dinner time).  And it got two thumbs up from both of my guys.  I think it’s the first time in my life that I’ve actually wanted to go light on the condiments so that I can really taste the burger.  If you have a food processor, this recipe comes together pretty fast.  A lot of the ingredients need to be chopped or ground up (oats, bread, almonds, carrots), and I just did them each separately in the food processor before dumping them all together into my mixing bowl.  The flax egg did a great job of holding everything together.  I tasted the “dough” before I baked them, and could tell it was a winner.  Then I was especially thrilled halfway through baking when I flipped them over and they didn’t crack or fall apart – they held their shape perfectly.  If you’ve been looking for a great homemade veggie burger, I highly recommend them!

On to other things… I often get emails from readers asking me questions, or asking how I’ve handled various situations.  Usually I just respond directly to the reader, but I think some of those questions might be things that other readers are interested in too.  So I’m opening this up for reader questions and ideas.  Is there something you’d like to see me cover that I haven’t?  Any questions you’d like me to answer?  You can leave comments or send me an email (babe at frugalbabe dot com) and I’ll try to incorporate your thoughts into some of my future posts.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    I would like to know a little more about how you and your husband got started in your current line of work. It sounds awesome and basically I’d like ideas on how I could create a similar work environment.

    I would like to hear how to get a garden started in a really small yard with supporting items you could grow in an extremely hot climate that doesn’t take too much time. (Nevada desert kinda hot where it gets to almost 120 degrees each summer, lol). Other ideas might be like the previous commenter, how you got in the line of work you are currently in and how you came about starting your business.

    How do you line dry your clothes in winter? Our clotheslines is always buried in snow come wintertime, but are there other methods that you use? Any tips on decluttering when one spouse has a hard time letting things go? Ahem.

    Any tips on being a basically SAHP (my husband will be a SAHD once our baby is born) but also earning a little income on the side? To have a reasonable chance of surviving on just my income, I’ve told my husband if he really needs to make $500/month. It’s just an estimate at this time, since I have only SWAG as our budget will change when he no longer works out of the house (no more $500/month in gas!)

    Of course anything on frugal pregnancy/baby – but I think you covered most of that on blog posts with your first baby. Maybe a link round-up?

    Although, technically I suppose, if we need my husband to make $500/month then we aren’t really surviving on my income alone, but you get the picture.

    I have a question for you. I am an ardent fan of your blog and you have inspired me to stay healthy and I always thought that one day when I would have kids ( my husband and I have been married for 2 years now), I would go the mid-wife route like you. Unfortunately, I recently figured out that I have some cysts in my ovaries that need to be removed etc… basically stuff leading to infertility and that I need to be closely monitored and operated on soon… I was wondering what you would have done had you been in my position because today I am filled with self-doubt as to whether or not go to a big hospital in a big city that is well-equipped or a smaller one which is not so technically advanced but i share great vibes with my gynecologist…

    Could you write more on how you would tackle such a situation if you were me and what made you trust the mid-wife over big hospitals?
