Turkey Burgers on a Saturday

A Recipe post is long overdue here on the blog...
Just tried out this recipe yesterday and froze a few in preparation for the summer grilling season. They are delicious, and a healthier option when compared to most other burgers. At first I was hesitant to try making these...but I had substituted ground turkey in spaghetti and meatballs quite awhile ago, and both my husband and I loved them. Give it a try and you might be surprised how good they truly are.

Homemade Turkey Burgers

  • 3 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, seasoned bread crumbs, onion, egg whites, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper. Form into 12 patties.
  2. Grill the patties until the internal temperature is 180 degrees, or do like I did and just cut one in half to make sure it's cooked all the way through.
  3. OR you could cook the patties in a skillet over medium heat.

P.S. The recipe cards shown above are now up at the shop :)


A well photographed weekend.

Our weekend was filled with many things: good friends, good food, afternoon walks, melting snow, a trip to the cities, a trip up north, iced coffee, a big fish, visiting both families, a walk with our nephew and sister-in-law, a basketball game, afternoons spent driving to nowhere in particular, warm sunshine, wind & rain, lazy days, popcorn mixed with m&ms, zumba workouts, early birthday celebrations, swimming, playing a little blackjack, long car rides, good conversations, naps, staying up late, sleeping in... oh I could go on and on. The photos below depict a few of these things, but many were too busy being enjoyed to take out my camera. 

A weekend overflowing with blessings. I hope each one of you were able to enjoy your own little adventure this past weekend too...


What to do on your day off.

It is spring break for the school district I sub in, so I have been attempting to fill the last few days with the perfect combination of relaxation and productivity. I think I may have the balance just about right.
This morning I slept in ( while feeling a little guilty when the husband's alarm went off at five)...
And then woke up to some quiet time reading and sipping my drug of choice. Quiet mornings like this are quite truly food my for soul. 

Now the rest of my morning, as it slips into the afternoon, is going to be spent preparing for our weekend away. I tend to stretch out my packing so that it takes up however much time I have to do it in. First I'll pack the important things such as my books, knitting, and warm sweaters. Then I'll remember that it's probably a good idea to have socks, jeans, pajamas, etc. It's a slow process...trying to remember what I may need over the next five days.  

I will also try and attempt to leave our apartment clean for our homecoming. It is wonderful to return home to no laundry to be done (besides what's in our bags), no dishes to clean, no beds to make, etc. Sometimes we leave home so frantically that we can' help but leave a trail of packing destruction, but since I have the day off I hope to ensure a restful return. 

This weekend I hope to bring my camera out of it's long hiatus from the world. As ridiculous as it sounds the battery died weeks ago, and I kept forgetting to charge it (out of laziness) and so I slipped into a habit of not taking pictures. I've missed it. 
Well there you have it...my thoughts this morning. 

If you get in the baking mood this weekend, you need to make these Chocolate Cream Cheese Cupcakes. Trust me, they are absolutely delicious. I made some for Ben to take to work the other day, but of course I had to keep a few at home since they didn't all fit in the container...oh well. haha
I kept the leftovers in the fridge, and trust me it is hard not to eat one every time I open the door. The recipe is from the blog Table for Two. There are wonderful recipes on this woman's blog, as well as beautiful photographs of all her final results.
