Pack o’ Peppers


Hello fresh berries.  Thank you for finally fitting my grocery budget.  Please stay cheapy cheap for the rest of the Summer. K? Thanks.


Hummus + tomato + avocado.  Do it.

Loooookie here… That’s the big silver bowl.  Yes it is!


Homemade iced coffee.  Mama just saved $3 today!


Grapes were also on sale.  Pretty much perfect grapes.  What are the chances they’ll be there again next week?  hmmmm?


In keeping with the fresh, healthy, homemade theme I had going for today I whipped up a turkey burger with fresh green beans.


Since I’m lacking in the barbecue department I broke out my trusty, awesome Griddler to do the work.  Green beans tossed with olive oil and coarse salt happily grilled up right next to the burgers.


Yesterday’s grocery trip included this good deal on a pack of peppers so I decided to work them into my favourite turkey burger recipe.  Last minute I realized I had no horseradish on hand so subbed in Dijon instead.


So today’s recipe ended up being:

  • 1 pound extra lean ground turkey
  • 2 green onions
  • 1/4 orange pepper
  • handful Montreal Steak Spice
  • 1 tbsp Dijon
  • 1.5 ounces old white cheddar
  • fresh basil

Makes 4 patties.  (Don’t cook on an open grill…you’ll lose all of the cheeesey goodness!)


Evening snackypoo.


Sweet tooth calling.


Workout: 5 minutes rowing machine, 15 minutes upper body strength exercises, 5 minutes easiest ab exercises ever, C25K Day 1 on treadmill.

Yep, workout.  I went to the gym for the first time…other than 1 hot yoga class…in 6 weeks.  And I didn’t die.  If my old lady back isn’t screaming at me in the morning I’m gonna go back again.  Riiiight! ;)
