Don't let shyness get in the way of your career.
This is the second time (first time is here) I have written about these burgers. Still haven’t quite figured them out because they remain too soft to fry. They are completely vegan and taste more like falafel than a veggie burger. They are super yummy and we had a lot of luck with them in the oven (broil is your friend).

Japanese noodles, Chinese greens, green pepper, hard-boiled egg, and big yummy pieces of shrimp. The shrimp I put in first, so that it would warm with the hot chicken soup base, and pork flavour seasoning. While this sits soaking up all the flavours, I read my morning lesson,
PL Calendar #13 There will always be a Way
“As long as you are serious, there is no reason for you to give up. Move forward one step at a time and things will always turn out for the best”
What better way to start the day, nourishment for the “tummy” and wisdom for the “soul”
If you haven’t already gotten your calendar, there are still some available at the church here in Ottawa, or any of the other churches nearer to you. They are available in Japanese, English, Portuguese and Spanish.
