I'm a failure!

This is where you say "No, you're not a failure!  Why would you think such a thing??"  
Then I say "My veggie burgers didn't work tonite!"  
And then you laugh at me for being such a drama queen.  

Have you ever have a dish fail on you?  Don't lie, I bet even the best chefs in the world have had a dish fail miserably on them.  But I bet they get as annoyed about it as I am.

I planned on making chili burgers tonite for dinner per Mr. Amazing's request.  Unfortunately, I forgot about the chili because of the troubles I had with my veggie burgers.  So, we just had cheeseburgers.

I tried a homemade veggie burger recipe for Kay and myself.  I used the recipe from  I used white beans, brown rice, celery, mushrooms, carrots, garlic, and an egg (I know, TOTALLY not supposed to use it according to E2 but, I couldn't figure out what else to use)

It ended up being too wet so I upped the amount of rice like the recipe suggested.  It was still a bit wet but I made it into patties anyway.  The patties fell apart on me when I tried to flip them.  Luckily I got 2 usable patties for dinner.  Now I'm brainstorming about what to do with the leftovers.  (I put the failed patties in a 9 inch round pan and baked it so it was edible.)

Prompt:  Are there any candies you just can't stomach?

Answer:  I haven't tried a truely horrible candy yet but, my least favorite is anything with caramel.  I don't know why but I really don't like it and I try to stay as far away from it as possible.  Oh!  And anything that is watermelon flavored.  

What would you do with the failed patties?  Also, what is your least favorite candy?


  1. I would turn these patties into sloppy joe! As for candies... I really hate iquiroice (and root beer too).

    1. Oops, it looks like I dropped 'l'... I hate liquiroice, really.

    2. OOOO, sloppy joes would have been a great idea! I am a sloppy joe fanatic. I actually ended up using them for soup. I just posted the recipe yesterday actually.
      Licorice and root beer are two things I can't stand either.
