Garden Black Bean Burger $2.92

Ok, top ten of our recipes is definitely our black bean burger, infact, Kim and I like it so much, this is the third time it has made an appearence. True to our word, though it is a "no repeat" year, therefore, we bring you Black Bean Burger, but a different variety then the previous two recipes. This burger cant get fresher then produce from my garden, and that is exactly where our produce came from, My lovely, massive garden. My dad was the huge gardner in our family, infact he died on Earth day, which was very apropos because he LOVED to garden. He never thought of it as work, and looked forward to spending a few hours in his garden everynight, even after a 12 hour work day. This year my brother planted 80 tomato plants in my garden, so tomatos are starting to be part of every meal for us. I also have a huge basil plant that is growing like a weed. I took a handful for our burgers, and a large tomato. I havent found a black bean burger I havent liked, so I am sure I am not going to start now. This one is going to be oh so good, I just know it.
