I recently started doing most of our grocery shopping at Aldi, and while I love how inexpensive it is, sometimes I’m not always happy with “how they do things.” For starters, the store is set up a little strangely – the aisles are narrow and a lot of the items don’t really go together. For example, the salad dressings are right next to the bread, and across from the produce. I just find it odd.

It’s been a tough week on the home-front…I haven’t been feeling my best – mostly just anxious, overwhelmed and achy. My legs and feet are so swollen that I can barely fit into my shoes (thankfully we live in Florida, where shoes are not always a requirement).
On top of that, Buddy had surgery Tuesday and I was a mess! Nothing big, he just had his teeth cleaned and a few moles/masses removed, but the last time he was under anesthesia it didn’t go very well, so I was one worried momma. I contemplated all day whether or not I had made the right decision by putting him under again, but his mouth has been very painful for awhile now, and the guilt I felt as I watched him suffer everyday outweighed my fears of another anesthesia. Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck all morning…

I still don’t understand where the time goes. I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 days since my last post and almost 8 weeks since my last Pregnancy Post!
Speaking of time, I’ve been busy getting stuff ready for the arrival of our sweet baby girl – hard to believe she will be here in less than 6 weeks (unless she decides to arrive late of course). Who knew having a baby took such preparation?! I mean, I know when they arrive it’s a lot of work, but man, there has already been so much preparation and she’s still in my belly!

Do y’all ever have a craving for a big, juicy burger?
I do. ALL OF THE TIME.
Only my burger cravings are of the meatless kind. 🙂 This might be boring for some, but nothing beats a good Veggie Burger IMO. In fact, some of the best burgers I can remember eating have been meatless.
Don’t believe me? Well, I’m here to change your mind.

CAUTION: The photographs for this post are terrible. I mean absolutely terrible. Please forgive me, I was famished when I made this recipe. On top of that, I’ve been super tired lately – soooo tired that the thought of dumping a smoothie into a pretty, glass mason jar seemed almost impossible. Forgive me? This baby is sucking the life out of me…
I know, I know, it’s only going to get worse…

I know a lot of people aren’t huge fans of eggplant – its bland flavor and spongy texture make it difficult to fall in love with it.
But one way to make this vegetable more lovable is by glamming it up – something that’s super easy to do with eggplant because of its versatility.
Come on, give eggplant a chance…
