I was feeling very uninspired this morning for breakfast. So I took the easy way out.
Cinnamon Harvest Kashi, almond milk and banana.
Oh, and let me tell you how if it weren’t for the self timed coffee this morning, I am certain I would not have gotten up.
I had felt SO achey when I woke up. I guess that’s what happens when you work in the industry. The long hours and lack of breaks get to you after a while.
I was super busy at work today. I got there a little early to type of my prep sheet [that I had forgotten to do yesterday!]. Then I just gathered my food product until the rock stars came in. We had lots of prep to do, so I didn’t take any pictures. [Sorry!]
I did have to pull out the camera for this picture though.
I was peeling pears to poach and saw this tattoo of sorts on one of the pears! It looks like a heart.
It’s the little things in life..
I finally left work around 2:45 pm and made my way back home. Time for a late lunch! Starting with some yogurt and a clementine!
Topping were the usual, peanut butter, almonds, blackberry jam, and butterscotch chips.
I heated up the spaghetti from the other day and to change it up a bit put a fried egg on top.
Mmh. It was good.
Love me some runny egg yolk. [Yes, I realize how weird that sounded].
I have been the epitome of laziness today. After a full tummy of food, I napped for about a half hour. Then I just watched some tv, looked at some blogs, checked emails, etc [in sweatpants!].
Finally around 6ish I decided to start thinking about dinner. I had some ground beef in the fridge so I decided to make a burger!!
I am a huge fan of caramelized onions on burgers.
So I julienned some white onions and popped them in the pan.
I just sauteed them with a little olive oil until they start to caramelize. Then I added a few tiny pinches of sugar and a very generous splash of balsamic vinegar.
I wanted to doctor this burger up so it would not be just any ordinary burger.
I took the meat and mixed it with a couple cloves of garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and worsteshire sauce.
Then it got crazy.
I turned the burger purple. How you may ask? Olive tapenade. Duh.
It became super moist once I added the tapenade, so I added some breadcrumbs to it.
Then it got CRAZIER!!!!
I decided I wanted to stuff the burger. And what better to stuff it with?
Goat cheese!! MMh..
I stuffed it, sealed it’s edges and popped it on my George Foreman lean grilling machineeeee.
It took only a few minutes to cook. I popped a small batch of kale chips in the oven and toasted a slice of bread.
Wallah, a crazy dinner!
I topped the burger with the caramelized balsamic onions. So good.
Yes, this burger was outrageous. Yes, it looks slightly offsetting. Yes, it was delicious, and I ate every last bite.
I mean really, who can resist ooey gooey cheese??
I can’t. I’m a sucker.
Now I am staring at my disaster of a kitchen. Where’s a dishwasher when you need one? That’s what I want to know!!
What’s bad is after I clean it, I’m contemplating making a mess of it again. By making these girl scout knockoffs!
Maybe I’ll just make the dough. Or not. Don’t judge me.
Game tomorrow night so expect a late post! Hope everyone has a great night!
