Before I share a couple recipes, I'll let you know how my RAGBRAI training is going. Yesterday morning I went for my longest ride so far - a 24 mile bike ride starting at 6am... and it went beautifully! I love early rides as the sun is just coming up over the horizon :-). I even saw some wildlife including baby ducks, bright blue birds, and a deer. I wasn't even that sore afterwards, partly thanks to the fact that I chose a VERY flat course - my next long ride will be more hilly ;-).
My first recipe is for black bean burgers... which I'll admit weren't the best... or the worst... they were just all right. Here's a picture of one I had on a salad topped with salsa and ketchup. The ketchup was the better topping of the two ;-).
