Good evening everyone! Was your Monday ok? Mine was good – didn’t crawl, didn’t fly…BUT a co-worker brought cupcakes for my birthday, which was a special, un-expected treat! :D Man I love me some cupcakes!!
After work I came right home to make some dinner because I’ve got three items on my agenda this evening:
- 4 mile run/walk
- Go to my parent’s house to give my opinion on some fabric my Mom wants to re-upholster the couch with
- Dig into Rosetta Stone!!
Gosh I’m excited!! I wonder how in-depth Level 1 will go (which is what I got)…I guess we’ll see!!!
Ok – first things first – you guys have GOT to try what I made for dinner tonight: Greek Turkey Burgers!
I took 1 package (~1.2 lbs) of 99% fat-free, ground turkey breast and mixed in the following items:
- ~1/4 cup feta cheese
- ~2/3 package frozen spinach (thawed and excess water squeezed out)
- 2 T minced red onion
- 2 T chopped sun-dried tomatoes
- dash of dried thyme, oregano, garlic powder and S&P
The moment these burgers hit the heat, my whole kitchen was filled with the most amazing smell and my stomach started growling!
I served the burger over a bed of baby spinach (seriously – spinach for breakfast and two types of spinach for dinner??? I am POPEYE!!!) and drizzled the whole dish with some delicious, olive oil based Italian dressing. Ughhhhhhh this was amazing!!!
99% fat-free turkey breast is definitely more expensive than it’s beefier counterpart, but I really do feel a lot better about eating it – and I think that’s worth a couple extra bucks sometimes. And I mean, come on – this is a five ingredient meal (plus spices) which made 4 jumbo-sized patties that clocked in at just under 200 cals each!! You just can’t beat that kind of dinner!
I’m heading out on my run/walk now and I’m going to daydream about what I want for my nightly snack. Hmmm…HMMM…eek I don’t know what to have!!
What’s your favorite evening snack?!
