Well you’ll be happy to know that my car was in fact, not stolen, although I feel as though I’ve been robbed… The cost to fix a busted alternator was more than our Vegas Vacation! UGH. This is the reason why we save though, so the one glimmer of goodness out of this whole thing is that it shouldn’t affect our day to day lives that much. But still – knowing that I could have gone on vacation for the cost of a stinking car repair makes me really consider taking the bus from now on. Who needs a car anyways?!
Another glimmer of goodness = the Geisha prints from my birthday were ready today! I got them framed and they look just terrific 🙂 Here’s a shot of one on the wall. There was an existing hook there from the previous owners (yes, I’m gangster and haven’t taken it out in the year and a half I’ve lived here) which actually worked out perfectly. Ben’s going to hang the other print underneath it tonight, and then my Lisa Kristine dreams will be complete 🙂
So a couple of weeks ago, packages of Jennie-O 99% fat-free lean ground turkey breast were on sale at the store for $2.99. STEAL! Those babies usually go for $5.99! I snatched up a couple packages with tonight’s dinner in mind: Greek Turkey Burgers.
I made these the same way as last time, except I didn’t have any frozen spinach on hand, so I chopped up a couple handfuls of baby spinach and sautéed them with ~1.4 diced red onion in a little non-stick spray.
I served my burgers over some more baby spinach and drizzled them with Bisignano’s Italian Dressing. A perfect Mediterranean combo 🙂
The Greeks know their stuff… Oregano, Thyme, Garlic, Sun-dried Tomatoes – OPA! (That’s Greek for yeehaw!)
I made four patties out of my Greek burger mixture, so each patty was 1/4lbs of guiltless, gourmet, goodness. 99% fat-free, lean ground turkey is dope.
Here’s a cross section. Look at those chewy sun-dried tomatoes… MMMM!!
I have a fabulous baking project to work on tonight…I’ll share in the morning – it’s going to be a good one (crossing my fingers, because I’ve never made it!!)
Have a supah Tuesday evening and don’t forget to enter up to three times in the Food Should Taste Good Chip Giveaway!
