Last Friday, I was very heartbroken to see the people in Paris were attacked by ISIS. Truthfully, I did not know the whole story but the crime investigation was still in process. As if that wasn’t enough tragic news; two players from Grant Union High School, located in Sacramento, were shot, one killed and another one was alive. Both were seniors. Their playoff game was postponed until the investigation was complete. Believe me, it was not because of Friday the 13th. Many people in the world thought that Friday the 13th was evil’s favorite day. Some thought that it was superstition. For some reasons, God had the plans and He knew before the incidents occurred. Please pray for the people of Paris and for Grant Union High School family and football team.
In the kitchen, I checked some foods in the refrigerator and I felt like that I wanted to eat something delicious. I went into the pantry closet and found some nuts. I thought that I could eat the nuts but something popped in my mind. NUTBURGER! Have you eaten this before? If not, you should try this! I love nutburgers! It’s very healthy for vegans and for those who are on diets. When my husband and I were dating, he took me to a restaurant in Fair Oaks, CA called the Sunflower. This is where I tried it for the first time. Since then I’ve gotten it each time I visit my mother in law. Since I can’t drive to get one often, I made my homemade nutburger at home.
Would you like to join me and learn how to make homemade nutburger?
