Girl’s Nights.  I’m a girl’s girl.  I love reality tv, pink champagne, shopping, and especially a fun night in with my ladies.  I’m not gonna lie, usually on girl’s nights I eat (and sip) way too many calories.  I enjoy a good cheese dip and can’t say no to ice cream! When I was approached to try some of the new great varieties of burgers from MorningStar Farms, a lightbulb went off.  Why can’t a night with friends be a bit healthier, without sacrificing flavor or fun??   How to dress up Morningstar Veggie Burgers!

And no, I’m not as hip and cool as them.  As if I even have to say that.  I work with Kelly (right) and she is truly one of the best people I know.  She is my constant cheerleader and has listened to more of my venting, about every subject on the planet, than I care to admit.  Her daughter Courtney (left) was by my side at wedding dress fittings.  Clearly I’m smart enough to include the effortlessly beautiful and stylish people in big decisions like that! Almira (center) is Kelly’s son’s girlfriend, and I have had such a good time getting to know her.  These three are the perfect girl’s night attendees.  They were ready to mix the Margarita Punch and get to grilling!! Scout was VERY excited to be one of the girls.   How to dress up Morningstar Veggie Burgers! Fun recipes for a burger bar with Morningstar! How to dress up Morningstar Veggie Burgers!

What is talked about at girl’s night, stays at girl’s night. :)   Pat grilled up three different types of MorningStar Farms Burgers for us: Buffalo Chik Patties, Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers, and Chicken Veggie Burgers.  I had never had any type of frozen veggie burger, and had no idea what to expect.  I was blown away!

      Hey Natalie- I’m so sorry to see you go, truly. Sometimes I work with brands in order to show some of my favorite things to readers, and also to support the blog. Working with brands is one of the ways I pay for the expenses of the blog, as well as my bills. I do understand where you’re coming from, but this post was more about life than about a recipe. I only work with brands I personally love, and the opinions are always 100% my own. I’m not told what to write. I hope you reconsider, but completely understand! Thanks for your honesty.
