Earth Day Everyday

It was a nice earth day yesterday. I wish I could have had a day off to give something back such as beach clean up or plant a tree. We always contribute though such as keeping the lights low , recycling, we tried composting a few times (kinda hard in a apartment). Since we practice staying green throughout the year we celebrated in another way...we Ate green!
We are big meat eaters in our house but for a "Green" day we had Garden Burgers for dinner.
See I like Garden burgers..I love the taste. I eat them from time to time but trying to get the Hubby and the Kids to eat it..meh..that's another story. I cooked the patty and sauteed some mushrooms with the patty. I used whole Wheat buns and sliced avocado,romaine lettuce, tomatoes, onions and sliced American cheese.
Gabe was Skeptical but he savored every bite. He said it was much better then he expected it to be. In fact he had 2!!
Parker on the other hand..he did not care for it at all. Gabe ended up making him a regular meat hamburger. We gave Ava Parker's garden burger and she loved it. She was eating it so fast though she started choking and spit up a bunch of it that was chewed and stuck in her throat on to the floor.
The cats were really quick to act though ..needless to say they had garden burgers too for dinner.

Great idea for earth day. We did some recycling earlier in the week.

Poor Ava! Cambria does that all the time and it drives me NUTS!!! Why do they feel they need to eat so fast! I Love Garden burgers not Bucca burgers.
