Here it is! I went Vegan for at least a day. Since I am not much for red meats, this wasn’t too hard for me. However, I am a very picky person. I was gung ho when I signed up for this campaign with BzzAgent.com and when I received the coupon packet in the mail, I started to get a little leary of actually “trying” it myself. I figured, well, maybe, just maybe, I can let my family experiment with it, and give me “their” feedback.
I headed to the store, and searched the isles for the frozen section that carried Morningstar Farms products. Hmmm. Oh no. I am getting nervous now. Darn, girl. You can do this, I said to myself. Just pick out something with turkey or chicken in it. That’s all I eat anyways. So, I grabbed a box of Grillin California Turk’y Burgers. I headed to the produce department, and nabbed a head of lettuce and a couple of juicy ripe tomatoes. Also picked up a few fruits while I was there!
In the kitchen, I popped the Grillen California Turk’y Burgers in the oven (real simple), and decided to make some Garlic mashed potatoes as our side dish. I also sliced up Granny Smith Apples and some sweet California bright Oranges. I prepared the dinner plates for the family, (while contemplating ravioli for myself…….Nahhhhhh) I made up a plate for myself. I thought to myself. Grin and bare it kid! Suck it up. Be strong. Be brave. Be…..adventurous.
I took a much hesitant, but rather large bite of this Turk’y burger on the huge Kaiser roll. Which, I might add….I do NOT like those big buns! I was (no lie), Astounded, by how much I liked it. Before my shocked husband could ask me how I liked it, I took a second bite. Just to be sure I wasn’t tricked. WoW. I really like this. I never, ever, ever would have tried this on my own. (Had I not had a free coupon and a obligation to Bzz about it 😉 I really, in all honesty, can not believe I liked it. It tastes great. Not at all what I was expecting.
On the somewhat dark side……..
I thought the patty was flat. Skinny. Lacking at first glance. My only gripe!
I expected it to taste like most “healthy” foods do…….like cardboard.
How on earth could this measly little piece of meat, deliver a satisfied meal?
Well, it did. Between the Huge bun, the lettuce, tomato, apples and orange slices and the garlic mashed potatoes……I was stuffed. After all….it was initially meant to be a “Healthy” meal. I think I did pretty good at trying something new, and keeping it a little on the lighter side.
So. Will I purchase another box of MorningStar Farms® ?
I am a BzzAgent, and am given FREE products or coupons for products, to try, in exchange for an honest opinion on them.
