  1. LOL, my mind went immediately to Dr. Seuss and his Green Eggs. I look forward to seeing the photo of the finished product, but I can certainly see why you would call it green hamburger. I’ll bet it’s flavourful if nothing else! Have a good weekend Liz, enjoying all your posts that have popped up on my screen!
