The Hubster seems to go back and forth with these burgers. Sometimes, they are in his good graces. And sometimes, they are not.
Which is okay, I suppose. The man knows what he likes (lentil burgers), and will be faithful to them until the day he dies.
I like these burgers because they help me eat more greens like spinach without really trying.
The Hubster doesn’t care, since he eats greens with breakfast every morning.
The Hubster doesn’t care, and in fact prefers those two.
I like these burgers, because…I do.
Good thing I’m the cook.
