Burgers & Beer: Guy Fieri’s Loaded Veggie Burger

Color and crunch and a whole lotta nutrition in one burger.

Guy Fieri’s Veggie Patties

Host of Food Network’s extremely popular show, Diner’s Drive-In’s and Dives, Guy Fieri is a television sensation. I’m fascinated by a show that glamorizes food that can kill you. Not a quick “kick the bucket” either. But a slow, disease ridden, artery clogging, gasping for breath because you’re morbidly obese kind of death. These producers are masters at making you salivate over poison.

The good news is Guy Fieri isn’t always about mile high hamburgers or chicken fried steak. He’s just as charismatic about his damn good veggie burger!

Love Notes

A love note is the perfect way to communicate affection.

My first love note was in 5th grade. I can remember the thrill of reading a few words on wide-lined notebook paper. As good as it gets.

Have love notes been replaced with texting (sexting)? Hopefully not. Love notes can send a powerful message to those you love because they meet a basic human need.

The need to be appreciated.
