Hump Day Dinner

I got home after work, had to pick up my son from school, and then took the dog to the vet. Cue adorable dog photo here.  She’s fine, by the way.  Just her annual exam.  Hee hee.

My sweet girl, Charlie.

Needless to say, it was a very busy day.  Have you ever had one of those? No?

Well, let me tell you.  I was dreading looking at the menu posted on the fridge, cause honestly I had not a clue what was for dinner, how simple it was, or how much time it would take.  Normally I allow for easy meals on days when I have stuff after work, but the vet was scheduled after my meal planning, so it was a toss up.

We were scheduled to have Chicken Curry with Ginger & Yogurt by Andie Mitchell.  Take a peek at Sweet Phi’s gorgeous blog covering that recipe from Andie. I love to try new recipes, so I was excited, until I remembered that I had not marinated the chicken last night.  Whoops.  I was too busy binge watching The Walking Dead.  Don’t judge me.

So I had to roll with it and hoped for inspiration  for an easy swap with another day.  So that’s what we are doing!  I whipped up some quick turkey feta burgers on salad that were planned for Thursday!

Quick Turkey Feta Burgers

A busy weeknight lifesaver! The flavor is reminiscent of a gyro when paired with feta dressing. Yum!

Ingredients

1 1/5 pounds ground lean turkey meat

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

dash of cayenne pepper

2-3 oz. feta cheese, crumbled

salt and pepper, to taste


Directions


Mix turkey, spices, and feta in a small bowl. I like to mix with my hands for a bit to ensure that the spices and cheese are evenly distributed. Divide the meat into four balls and flatten into patties. Grill on medium heat (we like to use our outdoor grill) for a few minutes on each side, being careful not to move them around too much on the grill. You can serve on a bun or over lettuce with homemade feta dressing and avocado!

Oh, and I did marinate the chicken, in case you are wondering.  I’ll tell you all about that recipe tomorrow!
