This “awsome face” is here for you, man. It’s here. On a Friday.

This week, I’m kind of obsessed with veggie burgers. I (Mary Kate) love veggie burgers, so long as you don’t expect them to be like meat burgers. Veggie burgers, for their own sake, and in their own right, are kind of awesome. I enjoyed V8Mile’s review of veggie burgers, but none of these brands are things I’ve seen here in New Hampshire. I’ll definitely look again if it’s cool enough next time I make it to Whole Foods. But The Kitchn posted a recipe today that I think could be easily enough adapted for allergy-friendliness: Sweet Potato Veggie burger. This one has seeds (pumpkin or sunflower) and an egg, but I might try messing with it to see what I can manage. Do you have a favorite veggie burger recipe or brand? If so, share it in the comments.

Many of you know that I (Denise) do a fair bit of fermenting so I can have things like homemade Sriracha, other hot sauces, sauerkraut, dill pickles and so on. I also do it because there are no safe probiotics for me, and there’s some vitamins that are made more bio-available by fermentation, since there really aren’t any safe options for multi-vitamin supplements for me.  If you’re in the Northeast, and you’re into fermenting, check out the Boston Ferments’ third annual Fermentation Festival which will be held on Sunday, October 4th from 10am-4pm at the Boston Public Market

And since it’s summer, and there’s lots of salads out there, here’s a Creamy Avocado Lime Salad Dressing that sounds pretty awesome. Bet it’d be great as a dipping sauce for fried stuff too. 

Hope you all have a great week!
