The Musical Fruit

Okay, so I fibbed.  Training plan to be shared tomorrow.  I got a little carried away with a ridiculous movie last night.  The hubster and I had 4 days of free HBO and Cinemax, so I loaded up with DVR with whatever sounded good or had good actors in it.  Bridesmaids?  Yes, please! A Knight's Tale?  Can't see that one enough.  And about a dozen others.  Last night we watched Adaptation, a Nicolas Cage movie where he plays a total psycho screen writer with a twin.  So not his usual genre.  And really effed up.  But entertaining.
But.  I need this plan :-P  So, tonight will be the finishing of the plan.  Tomorrow, the unveiling!
Today, we eat.  Well, okay, we can do that tomorrow.  But I have a fun recipe to add to your summer repertoire....economical, easy to prep and very summery.  Is that a word?  It is now.  It's also, of course, healthy.  And contains  ingredients you probably already have in your cupboards.  Including, of course, the musical fruit :-P (What the eff is up with the last poem?1?) That was probably a bit too far. Ahem.  Anyways....Check it out!

Black Bean Burgers

1 15 oz can black beans, drained
1/4 cup salsa
1 egg
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup quick oats
Dash hot sauce (optional)
1 tsp. Adobo seasoning
AP flour (for forming the patties)

Super easy prep.  Throw it all into a food processor. sprinkle flour on your counter top to help meld the ingredients.  Form 4 patties and stick them on a plate.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours in order to let the patties form well.  Since the hubster was out and I'm a girly girl (har) who is scurred of lighting a grill, I decided to bake them, but you can grill them as well!  Spray a casserole dish with a bit of cooking spray, set patties in the pan and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees, flipping halfway through.
Serve in a tortilla or your choice of bun....they were delicious with a bit of mexican cheese and a squirt of BBQ sauce, sweet and white fry wedges alongside for that burger joint feel :-)
Yum, yum yum.  If it's gotta be Monday, at least the eats are good!
And now, onto that SB plan.  And the Bachelorette.
Excuse the profanity during the unveling tomorrow, in case I get side tracked :-P
