A couple of days ago… I cooked two different meals at suppertime. The girls wanted to eat whatever their little hearts desired. (We do that at times.) My little one wanted an omelet. Let me tell you…did I ever deliver? A three egg omelet w/pepperoni and mozzarella. Since I was in the middle of a good book I decided that I would have a ginormous bowl of air-popped popcorn after I got everyone else fed. (Okay, lest you think that I was too saintly, it did have a tad of olive oil and a smidge of real butter.) Okay…..so….what about the mister? Where does he fit into the story?
Enter: The Mr.
My husband came home a little early to mow our jungle of a yard. How precious. I have been known to mow (a lot) but at this present time the ragweed is out to get me. Soooooo… since this hard workin’ man worked all day and then came home and went straight to work again I decided that the burgers that I was going to fix him needed to be just a leetle extra special.
I must fess up now. I did cheat. These are turkey burgers and they were frozen. I love, love…..lovedy..love…love turkey burgers. Now I am sure that not all of you do. I’m okay with that. 😉 But, I saw these at the store and couldn’t resist. Anyway, lest my man have to eat a plain ol’ burger on a bun…I doctored it a tad. That is hereditary. (My dad….is a doctor-upper in the food dept.) Do you want my secret? I will share it with you and show you a picture all at the same time. (btw: you will notice that I also cooked corn for the man. He is a lover of all things corn. ;))
Happy Thursday Dirt Roaders! Celebrate Thursday…..just cause you can.
Let me know what secret weapons you use on your burgers! Mmmm….I think that I could eat burgers…….a lot!
Lands, I must try these burgers! Sadly, I think I’m in the “owe” dept still… 🙂 And wow…you’re pics are turning out really well!
Photoguy…..lol…thank you so much. I kind of doubt that you are in the “owe” department. 🙂 Don’t forget…you still have oats coming your way!
I love feta on a burger…I also love to do a stuffed burger with a pineapple ring n the middle…so yummy!
Maranda…I have never tried that. We have stuff ours with an onion before. Yum. 🙂 The avacado is always the kicker for me…and of course the garlic mayo. 🙂
I MUST tell you a secret new ingredient that I have found that is not only AMAZINGLY good for you….but tastes like cheese. You heard me. Something EXTRA healthy that TASTES LIKE CHEESE!! It’s called nutritional yeast. Sorry, the name kind-of throw you, but let me just tell you about it. You can wikipedia it and read about it, but the few details I will give are these:
It’s high in b-vitamins
It’s high in Iron
IT TASTES LIKE CHEESE!!
You can put it on popcorn to make it taste like buttered popcorn! (this was my intended purpose on telling you this)
My little daughter eats it by the spoonful because…IT TASTES LIKE CHEESE!!
And iron and b-vitamins are WAY up there on the list of must-haves for the body.
You can get it in bulk at health food stores that carry it. Mama Jeans in Springfield does.
Jodi-girl…I love all of your comments. Yes…you must come and see me. 🙂 It would be a wonderful thing. I am going to have to check out this cheese like substance of which you speak. How cool is that? Thank you for the compliments. I hope and pray that through this new little path…that someone can be touched and inspired. Much love, k.
