Back again with another recipe. I know I’ve missed two weeks of content but I have a valid excuse and it’s called life. Being an adult had taken over. Errands, stresses, work, stresses, lack of sleep, sparadic bounds of energy which seem to last five minutes before I feel wiped out. Adulting at its finest. I think I’m going to do a few get to know me posts on here so that you guys can get to know me a little better, Make blog a bit more personal. I’m not going to set a deadline for it because sadly im not sure I’d be able to stick to it right now. But I will have it up as soon as I can. I rarely write like this on here mainly because I feel like I’m babbling. Talking about irrelacant things that I doubt anyone is actually interest in. Never the less time to make changes. time to break habits. Time to babble I guess.
Last week was a busy week, so the only time I’ve had free to any recipe testing was on weekend. Which to be honest I didn’t mind. Im a home body. As much as I love going out, exploring London and enjoying what is has to offer. I LOVE being at home! Nothing makes me happier than catching up on shows and eat good food. One of the recipe I came up with are these black bean burgers that can alternatively be made into little bites. They taste great both hot or cold. In a salad, burger bun or sandwich. Making them perfect for meal prepping. Pairs lovely with some houmus, Tatziki or Avocado
