Craving Summer

As I walked outside today to do errands, I was greeted by something that left a huge smile across my face.

More flowers in my favorite color purple!!!! I would have taken a picture, but by the time I recharged my battery, the flowers had closed up for bed, so sad. Maybe tomorrow?

Seeing my beautiful flowers is making me crave warmer, brighter, and happier weather. May sunny days be coming our way!

Until they do, I will remain hopeful and start to make meals that remind me that soon I will be sitting outside eating dinner by my pool. Tonight's meal: Bun-less burgers with salad. It may not be summer yet, but it's bright and cheerful in my belly!
I absolutely love making burgers. I love how you can add so many different ingredients to make various combinations. Today, I sauteed 1/2 red onion, red bell pepper, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 3 tbsp minced jalapenos, 2 pieces of chopped bacon, and added it to one pound of lean ground beef. I added salt, pepper, chili powder, ground mustard, garlic powder, parsley, cholula and worcestershire sauce. I got my hands dirty and mixed it all up, to make four patties.

When it's starts to get warmer out, I crave lighter, healthier options like so many people, so I tend to top my proteins on salads. This one was a winner!

While allowing my food to digest, I vacuumed and dusted my living room. I just love when my furniture shines! Then it was time for my workout of the day.
I did this DVD and then did intervals on my treadmill for 20 minutes. 

I bought this DVD the last time the man and I went to Costco. This is another store that we enjoy WAY too much. The last time we went we told each other we would only buy the staples. Somehow this ended up underneath our loot, oops! But I'm glad that it did, because I really like it! 

After showering, it was time for a snack.
Granny smith apple + peanut butter + two huge strawberries. So good! Refreshing and filling, the perfect snack!

Now, its time to get some wedding stuff done and read a book, my favorite part of the evening! G'nite all.


  1. I felt the exact same way this weekend. The weather was so beautiful! I am craving summer!!

  2. I eat burgers the same way a lot! My boyfriend always teases me about it but I actually think it tastes better without all that bun! I am craving summer as well...hurry up!
