I am eating a popsicle and trying to decide whether I should clean and reorganize my closet after 6 pm on a Sunday. It would be the productive thing to do. But being productive isn't always the most fun choice. I could eat more popsicles and finish watching Arrested Development. We'll see where this post takes me.
I am not about eating bread-less burgers. I love me a bun. I never consider my carb intake. I do however consider my laziness. Sometime, often, I get home and I don't want to ever leave again. And that's what happened on this particular evening. I formed my patties, I looked around, I thought about running to the market, then I decided to just eat the spinach in the fridge. Who says laziness is a bad quality? It can lead to healthy dinner choices. (Yesterday, I ate tofu over beans because I didn't want to change out of pajamas after 7 pm. Boo-yah.)
I knew a burger salad needed additional jazzing up, so I caramelized onions, fennel and bell peppers for a tasty topping that brought the dish together. To my ground turkey I added chopped celery, bell pepper, green onion, garlic chives, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika and cumin. My salad base consisted of baby spinach, goat cheese, tomatoes and avocado.
We were both surprised at how delicious and satisfying this quick meal turned out to be. I might be trying other versions of burger salads soon. Next time intentionally.
