It's fun when a Thursday is the end of the work week, isn't it? by 8:30am, the office was buzzing, lots of laughing could be heard, smiles all around. Everyone gets pumped for a long weekend.
A lovely breakfast of Dorset cereal, blueberries and skim milk.
Throughout the morning I had the other half of yesterday's Luna bar and an apple. Both tasty and satisfying.
Lunch was good too. Some salad, with mixed greens, carrots, red pepper, cucumber and a load of leftover couscous. I emptied the bottle of Japanese Ginger dressing...any suggestions for something new? I had one suggestion the other day, but sadly, didn't have the brand in either of the stores I went to. With the salad, I also had and Ezekiel english muffin, toasted, each half with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge. Bread to me is so much better as toast.
I was not hungry in the afternoon. All the grains filled me up!
At home cooking dinner I snacked on some raisins and a Girl Guide cookie. 1.5 boxes to go.
For dinner we had home made burgers. I'll call them...um... Jessica's Burgers. :)
For the burgers you need:
- 500g extra lean ground beef
- 500g lean ground pork
- 1 chopped onion
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- a few shakes of cumin
Add chopped onions and cilantro.
In a separate bowl, mix up ground meat, you probably want to remove your rings before doing this.
Add bread crumb mixture and mix with hands really well.
Form in to burgers. I usually get about 12, today 11 and a tester. Hey, my day job is Quality Control, so it's just in me. ;)
Then bbq to your liking and top as you wish! Voila! Home made burgers, YUM! I had to have the mini one while cooking.
I had my full size burger with 1/2 a toasted ww thin, hot peppers and zucchini relish on the side, and a nice salad with balsamic vinegar. I typically don't put anything on my burgers/hot dogs, I'm that kid that wanted everything plain. I like the condiments on the side better. Ketchup? I can't remember the last time I ate it.
Looking forward to this long, sunny, warm weekend! It's going to be great!
