Good Morning! We are halfway through the week!
Nothing new going on in my neck of the woods. Except that we toured a winery last weekend (pic above). It was beautiful and some of the best wine I've ever tasted.
On to the food stuff:
Breakfast: Egg Sandwich
I am so totally predictable, if you read last week's post...I repeated this breakfast a few times this week, actually. It is so filling and delicious!
This is 1/4 cup of Egg Beaters on a whole wheat English muffin with a little muenster cheese and strawberry preserves. 2 cups of coffee on the side!
Morning Snack: Apple
I cut up a jazz apple for snack in the morning. It was so crisp and perfectly sweet and tart at the same time.
Lunch: Quesadilla Wrap
After a short dog walk, I whipped up some turkey and spinach quesadillas on Flat Out wraps (I get the original light). A couple big ole strawberries and veggie straws on the side.
Afternoon Snack: Sad Grapes
I have been loving grapes this season. These guys were on their last leg and I had to throw the wrinkly ones away.
Before my boot camp workout I went home and made some toast with crunchy (reduced fat) peanut butter to hold me over.
Bizzy the dog watched with bated breath.
"Um, can I please have some, mum?"
It's so cute, she raises one paw off the ground when she wants something.
"Seriously? You're not going to share?!"
Dinner: Light Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Turkey Burgers & Veggies
I got home from boot camp, walked Bizzy (again), did some house chores and finally got around to making dinner. This was a winner of a dinner!!
I love adding buffalo flavor to
Here's a quick recipe of what I put in my turkey burgers:
Light Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Turkey Burgers
1 lb lean ground turkey
1/4 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
2-3 tbsp buffalo sauce
1 tsp salt
sprinkle of pepper & garlic powder
Mix all this up and portion out 4 patties. Press a thumb sized hole in the center.
Then put half of one of these cheese wedges in the center of the burgers (so you'll need 2 wedges for 4 burgers)
Fold the turkey patty in a ball around the cheese and press down.
Sprinkle some grill seasoning and grill those bad boys for a few minutes on each side until cooked.
Add a little extra buffalo sauce on top to serve.
I tried to take a picture of the cheese oozing out, but I was preoccupied with cleaning up after dinner, and the patty got a little cold, so no hot oozy cheese. Sigh.
I had my turkey burger on a lettuce bun with a side of grilled sweet potato wedges, steamed veggies and half an ear of corn.
Then my favorite frozen yogurt in a cone followed.
Um, I guess I made buffalo turkey burgers this month already. Forgive me?
Well, they were slightly different: Spinach Dip Buffalo Turkey Sliders
Have a lovely week, all!
