Yes, I Ate 2 Burgers, What Of It?

I have been a busy bee the past few days. Not only have I been busy at work, I had a very full weekend. I posted pictures below of my visit with my friend Rosemary (which was AMAZING), a couple pictures from the heart walk that Mom and I did (I got my picture made with Big Al), a picture of Jordan and I at his mom’s surprise 50th birthday party, and a picture of me with a golf club. Dad, David and I went out to the driving range Sunday afternoon and I did OK. I have a problem keeping my head down and eye on the ball. I had a really good time though and definitely want to go back this weekend. I am SO SORE on the right side of my body. I could definitely feel it working muscles I never get to. I had a great weekend hanging out with good friends and enjoying yummy food. Here are some pics…








It was a full weekend but I really enjoyed it. Last night was recipe night…



I made Blue Cheese Stuffed Turkey Burgers. The recipe was ACTUALLY Feta Stuffed Chicken Burgers but they didn’t have ground chicken at the store and I plan on making Blue Cheese dressing soon so I changed it all up. The burgers were delicious. All you do is mix up the ground turkey, blue cheese, oregano & garlic powder and cook it a few minutes on each side in a skillet (you can also grill or broil them). I stuck mine in the oven a few minutes after I browned them on both sides to make sure they got done all the way through. I put them on a reduced calorie wheat bun and added lettuce and sliced black olives to the top of the burger. They were quite tasty and pretty low in calories (which is why I had 2). If you aren’t big on blue cheese, I would definitely go with Feta since it’s less potent. Turkey has a tendency to dry out but I left these alone in the skillet and they stayed nice and moist.

I watched “How to Train Your Dragon” last night which is nominated for Best Animated Film at the Oscars. It was pretty great. It made me cry of course which I think is a prerequisite to children’s movies now…the viewer must be weeping by the end. It was a cute movie. It got me even more excited about the upcoming Oscars. I will definitely be sharing some picks on Friday.

I am going to see Grace Potter and the Nocturnals tomorrow in Birmingham. This is my second time to see her and I’m excited! I’m also happy to spend some time with Nish & Jordan…I haven’t seen Nish in FOREVER. Should be a good time!

Enjoy the rest of your week! Bye!

“And he said
He said it's crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
Cause I don't wanna fight this war
It's amazing to see me reading through this scene
Of love and fear and apologies
He said it's crazy
How love stays with me
You know it hurts me
That I didn't figure it out before
And now it's too late for a soliloquy
It's way too late for dignity
It's time for apologies.” Apologies-Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
