i have a confession. i didn’t go on a run today… i could not bring myself to get out of bed. so, no 4.5miles for me. there is always tomorrow, right? i was, however, able to cook and now blog, so yay me!
on the menu tonight was, as promised yesterday, southwestern turkey burgers (at least one promise was upheld!). i followed the recipe relatively closely and it was really very easy. something that was very much appreciated after a day like today.
for the burger (my version):1 1/3lbs of lean ground turkey 1 fresh poblano pepper, roasted, skinned and diced pinch of salt drizzle of olive oil whole wheat bun (i used mrs. baird’s 100% whole wheat gillin’ thins) spinach tomato, sliced red onion, sliced avocado, sliced in a large bowl, combine ground turkey, diced pepper, salt, mix well. divide meat mixture (meat mixture doesn’t sound all that too appealing, does it? it was though. i promise) in 4, shape into patties. hear a large pan on medium heat and drizzle the olive oil into the pan. add the patties and cook until browned on one side, flip and reduce the heat to low. cook until the juices run clear. assemble burgers with handful of spinach, tomato slices, onion and avocado slices. enjoy!
the burgers were easy, quick and tasty and i will definitely be making them again. i think next time though, i will use a spicier pepper to pack in a little bit more punch.
and one last note… it felt so good cooking a meal. i can’t wait for tomorrow.your turkey-dude-ette, faith
