I'm Heading to Bermuda -
Vegan Memorial Day Burgers and the Future of The Bronx
I'm coming to you straight from my luscious, green backyard, soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the Spring breeze!
Are you guys psyched for the 3-Day weekend! I'm most excited about the fact that two of the three days (not counting today) are expected to be sunny and beautiful here on Long Island.
I recall that most Memorial Day weekends have a history of being rather wet and rainy.
So, what are your plans? Me and my gang are going to be pretty low-key. As you may remember from yesterday's blog, we are going to spend Saturday (tomorrow) in Garden City at the Garden City Centennial Celebration and then Monday (Memorial Day), we'll be headed into Queens for the Broadway "Astoria" Memorial Day Fair.
As for Sunday, well, rain is predicted and we will be having an open house, so me and the girls decided to take care of some food shopping and make our debut for the season at Lifetime Fitness.
I put our membership on hold for the winter, but now it's time to get back in the swing of things.
Can I share with you guys that I miss my dear cuz!! I haven't spoken with her in like a week! Going to text her now to see how her Colorado trip is going! I wish she would pop on here today to give us a written and photo update!!
Well, since today is Friday, I'm going to share a new vegan recipe with you!
This week, it's VEGAN SWEET POTATO & BLACK BEAN BURGERS
As we all know, Memorial Day has long been associated with barbeques and burgers. So, here is a great vegan alternative for us vegans!
I will be making these this weekend and whether you are a vegan or just trying to eat more healthy, I think you'll appreciate all the yummy ingredients that make up these burgers, which I found on CookieandKate.com.
Please lettuce (lol a little vegan pun) know if you try any of my posted vegan recipes!!
Lastly, if you would like to know more about The Bronx and the local economy in this NYC borough, check out my latest interview with Bronx Historical Tours founder, Alexandra Maruri in today's Weekday Magazine in TheIsTheBronx.info.

As Managing Director of Bronx Historical Tours, Ms. Maruri has and continues to educate visitors, both local and from around the world, to the hidden (and not so hidden!) gems that exist in the borough, but, moreover, that are part of her world.
Her business philosophy is quite simple – a deep dedication to promoting sustainable tourism practices in The Bronx. Her goal is to forge opportunities for local businesses by bringing tourism to the borough, with a sensitivity for economic growth, social awareness of the local culture, and environmental respect, while raising awareness of the borough’s historic preservation.
