May Day Flowers, Burgers, and Mopey Peanuts

First and foremost, happy May Day!

I used to love gathering flowers from my mom’s garden and putting them on the doorstep of a friend or neighbor we especially liked.  Today, I’m being lazy and e-gifting flowers on your e-doorstep.

While you’re enjoying your e-flowers, how about a new recipe, too?  We had these “Big Fat Greek Burgers” the other day (click on burger picture for recipe).  I’ve done the whole turkey-burger-with-tzatziki-sauce thing, and it’s good.  But I wanted to mix things up a bit with a new version of that, and I succeeded.  I love the internet and its endless recipes.

This version isn’t any old burger.  It’s a super simple turkey patty with stuffing.  So much delicious stuffing.  Dill and spinach and tastiness.

So what did I change from the recipe?  Well, the buns weren’t included.  That turned this recipe into a super healthy dinner option–nothing but turkey, veggies, yogurt, and a small amount of cheese.  Perfect.  I also skimped on the turkey, which was a mistake.  Don’t do it!  If anything, you should use 1.5 lbs. of meat instead of 1.25.  I went with exactly 1 lb., and my burger was tiny.  Delicious, but tiny.  Lesson learned.  That’s also why there’s a bunch of spinach/dill/onion/cheese mix on top of my burger.  There wasn’t enough stuffing space in that teeny, tiny burger.  Sigh.

What else?  It’s been raining for 3 days, so Peanut has been hungry and listless for 3 days.  Poor kid.

Can you feel the angst?  No?  Probably because he’s in his favorite sunny spot, and it’s no longer raining.  It’s a good day for the P, even if his appetite hasn’t caught up with him yet.

I think that’s just about it–flowers, food, dog.  Oh, and I reclaimed a room yesterday.  It was turning into a pile of clothes to repair, clothes to give away, unused curtain rods (wanted to put them up after I paint rooms), and stacks and stacks of paper.  Yesterday was a marathon session of filing and tidying, and the end result is beautiful.  Open floor everywhere.  I’ve never been so happy to see carpet in my life.
