Memorial Day we had family and friends over and officially christened the barbecue
with the first outdoor grilling of the summer. YaY!
This is one of our favorite recipes, found here.
These deliciously seasoned turkey burgers are also healthy!
The ground turkey is combined with fresh chopped parsley and mint, garlic, cumin, coriander, paprika
and a touch of cayenne.
I serve them in whole grain pocket bread with tzatziki yogurt sauce and hummus.
For a side dish I made a tabouli salad with cracked wheat, fresh chopped parsley, tomato, cucumber, and feta cheese. A little olive oil and lemon juice is all the “dressing” this needs.
Now onto the not so healthy part of our Memorial Day get together…dessert.
I made Robin’s Easy Strawberry Cake again, but this time I made it into cupcakes
and made a Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting instead of the Strawberry Buttercream in the original recipe.
(8oz. cream cheese and 1 stick butter softened then creamed together. Add 1 tsp vanilla, and 1/2 cup fresh mashed strawberries, 2 lbs powdered sugar and whip in mixer.)
I’m looking forward to a summer filled with family, friends and backyard grilling!
