Hello, hello! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! We had a nice, low key Saturday while we did our best to savor the last of the summer. I can’t believe Fall is upon us!!!! (But I’m actually totally psyched about it, this is my favorite time of the year.)
Me and B started our Saturday with some yogurt, iced coffee, and a morning run:
Boom. 4 more miles in the books. Although B called it quits after 2. I could tell she wanted to go home because she was pulling toward our apartment every time we passed our street and I get pretty nervous about heat stroke when the sun is that intense.
After the run, we did some cleaning and I sipped on this refreshing carbonated water while I did some meal prep for lunch:
We had some ground beef in the fridge that we needed to cook, so we decided to make hamburgers for lunch, and they turned out delicious. I don’t know if we were just extra hungry, but I’m telling you they really hit the spot.
Recipe makes 4 hamburgers.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup panko (or bread crumbs)
- Montreal steak seasoning
- salt / pepper
- 4 whole wheat hamburger buns
- 1 sliced roma tomato
- baby arugula
- red onion
- 4 slices of cheese
- ketchup/mustard/other condiment
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir it up until it’s well mixed. (I used probably about a tablespoon of the Montreal steak seasoning, and a decent coating of the salt/pepper.)
Once the ingredients are well mixed, divide into 4 parts and make patties:
Grill to desired done-ness and add a slice of cheese so it gets melty and delicious. Add toppings and put that sucker on a bun – done!
We enjoyed our burgers with a side of cucumbers/hummus and some cool mint iced tea.
Mint Iced Tea
- 13 cups water (3 liters)
- Herbal mint tea (5 bags)
- Bring water to a boil
- Add tea bags
- Steep for 3-5 minutes
- Place in the fridge to cool down
Enjoy over ice!
