Black bean burger

In recipe on January 4, 2011 at 6:50 pm

One of the best things about living in 2011 (as compared to 2001, let’s say) is the lack of email forwards and chain mail. Remember when every other email you received had pink sparkles and told you to send it on within 24 hours under pain of your crush finding out you liked him/her? Remember?!?!

So, blast from the past: I recently received an email chain letter for recipes, which I thought was worth the effort. The gig was you had to send on a recipe to the person listed in the email, add yourself to the second spot on the list and send on to your friends.

Looks like nobody else believes in chain letters anymore, because I have yet to receive a single recipe. I did, however, get one person (who shall remain nameless) who just responded to me instead of the name on the chain. She claims this is the “best freaking veggie burger of your life,” and I admit, it’s pretty freaking good.
