jalapeno turkey burgers.

Yesterday I wanted to crash after lunch. How do people make it all day? I motivated myself to pick up B, go by the grocery store, and cook dinner as planned. I pulled this recipe from a Whole 30 meal plan I saw posted. (I added onion hamburger buns and roasted red potatoes as a side — oops.) It was good, and I’m thinking about scratching the meal I’d planned for tonight in favor of leftovers!

This isn’t my first time cooking turkey burgers. I’ve made even simpler ones with just Mrs. Dash, avocado stuffed turkey burgers,  and even chipotle bacon turkey sliders. Apparently I have a thing for them.

These were fairly simple, and I was able to fix supper while B was entertaining herself in her jumperoo thing. She pretty much rocks.
