Veggie + Turkey Burgers

August 2, 2015

Morning!  Happy Sunday!

Yesterday, we woke up with a beautiful day and the whole day open, so we decided to take advantage of the weather and head out for a hike.  Well, more like a “hike” really– we went to the Green Mountain Nature Trail, which is about ten minutes from our house– it’s a pretty little hiking trail that works itself around a lake, but it’s only about a mile long, which is actually the perfect distance for Lila to do on her own.  Otherwise, she starts complaining about not wanting to walk anymore– oh wait; she did that anyway. It was still a fun hike.  🙂

  Lila’s new favorite thing is to pretend she is a tiger…or a dog…

It was the perfect morning outing!  On the way back, we stopped at the farmers market and got some veggies for our dinner plans, which were…turkey burgers.  Fresh Market sells some *really* tasty turkey burgers– I hate this word as much as the next person, but really the only way to describe them is:

They have tons of veggies in them, which I figured was part of the solution.  So, for our turkey burgers last night, we cooked up some diced onion, pepper, and zucchini to mix in with the ground turkey (along with garlic salt and worcestershire sauce for flavor) before grilling:

   Final verdict?  It was good, but not Fresh Market good.  I’d guess that they use a fattier turkey meat, except that the burgers are billed as “low-fat.”  Sigh.  Some day we’ll figure it out.

Not sure what’s on our agenda today, but I hope you have a great Sunday!

    One way to find out what they put in the turkey burger is to call them up and (lie) tell them you had a curious food allergy and your doctor is asking for the ingredient list. I did this for the recipe to a chicken salad from Met Market once and it worked! 🙂

      That’s a good idea…you know, now that I’m thinking about it, I think they might have the ingredients listed on the packing sticker…
