A Feast!

I LOVE cooking, and not just throwing some cans and boxes together (although there is a place for that, too!). Monday night I whipped up some turkey burgers:

Turkey Prep

Yes, I use a scale for accuracy! Mixed in chopped red peppers and white onion. Spices...I think this time was garlic powder, black pepper, salt, dry mustard and some red pepper. Then a squirt of yellow mustard and one of caesar dressing. Yeah, that's how I roll!

Whipped up some sweet potato fries (peeled, 'chipped' as Yorkie would say, then olive oil, kosher salt and fresh black pepper, then paprika) and brewed some decaf iced tea.


YUM! We had some new 'cheese' from Borden - Cheddar with Applewood Bacon and you could really taste the bacon! I mixed mayo and ketchup on one side, then the cheese and lettuce on the other, toasted bun. Matt likes just cheese and ketchup.

One of the blogs I have started reading is Smitten Kitchen and she just has the BEST most gorgeous recipes, and she also hung out with The Pioneer Woman lately, another of my faves. But yesterday Deb posted a recipe for Raspberry Buttermilk Cake so I threw some lemon juice in my milk and got going!

What a great end to the evening!

And because we all want to be more like Bezzie, here's my own kitty thermometer:

Kitty Thermometer!

It's over 80 here today (and yesterday, and tomorrow) and poor Jack is home without AC. Last year they didn't turn it on until sometime in June.... :(

Ha ha! Love the scale! Looks yummy!!

And yes, your cat thermometer looks properly calibrated--I'd expect that temp based on that posture!
