Memorial Day weekend is the time we honor all those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of the U.S. and for the cause of freedom.
The long weekend is also an occasion to get together with family and friends and enjoy a cookout and all the food that comes with it. The Associated Press took a break from pushing the importance of eating bugs to save the planet but still served up a suggestion for a meatless meal at your cookout:
Black beans and quinoa form the basis of vegetarian burgers that make a nice addition to a Memorial Day barbecue. https://t.co/0vAubrLKrT

It’s billed as “a veggie burger even meat-eaters will love,” but we’re guessing that meat-eaters will be eating meat at the Memorial Day barbeque. The AP earned another ratio.

This really has become a parody account… https://t.co/djK86sI7Os

I would never besmirch the memory of our heroic patriots in such a way https://t.co/5MYkLO6GwJ

There's lettuce, tomatos, and onions to go on the burgers, if they really want vegetables.

Yes, we’re willing to compromise on the veggie thing, provided they are toppings for the all-beef burgers.
I love black beans, but they belong with rice not in a fake burger. https://t.co/v7H3Mb94Cn

Horrible. Black beans belong with white rice and a lot of lechón asado, not made into a fake burger. https://t.co/OhsEkwRT0H

Or you could knock out a steak, grill some brats, maybe smoke a nice brisket, and there’s always the good ole fashioned smashed beef patty. Your guests will be much happier. https://t.co/4dJZIvO801

I actually like those TRUE veggie burgers rather than that chemical swill that passes as faux meat.
But real beef is the best tasting and the only thing I serve unless someone tells me they’re vegetarians.

At least the AP story didn’t mention climate change as the reason to go meatless, which frankly is a little surprising.
