Fall Into Yummies

I don’t have a new recipe of my own to post today. Instead I want to share y’all some super yumminess I have seen all over bloggyland. With temperatures reaching 106 today, I really wanted to FOCUS on wonderful fall recipes. Hopefully that and the AC will distract me from the heat outside. 

Curry is warm, it makes me think of fall. I think growing up there were so many parties that we went to during the fall and winter months and being half Pakistani, there was a lot of delicious warm curried food. My sweet blogging friend Bella with Bella Before and After shared several recipes in this one post. Inexpensive Curried Fish Dinners 
Just look at this deliciousness!

Gift Bag Art

I did a feature on my sister in law Teresa with Nestled in Rosenberg not too long ago. It was about her Art from a $store gift bag. She made these 

How awesome are they!?! I LOVED her idea! I decided to start hunting for my own $store gift bags and frames to decorate our pretty plain apartment. I found these CUTE girls gift bags at Dollar Tree. My hubby found the colorful frame packs at Target for $2.50 ea. 
See the raised pieces? I removed those and put them into the frames. These are the finished pictures. I used scrap book paper behind the images.
The green dragonfly on the floral paper is my favorite!! Alie came to check them out when I was finished. 
See, she liked that one best too! This is how I hung them up in her room. 
This is a view of the whole wall. 

Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Don’t forget about Terrifically Tasteful Thursdays!! I have also posted pictures of our recent vacation in San Diego for y’all to enjoy. It was a first for our family and the first time our sweet Alie had been to the beach. You can view the pictures HERE!

Fantastically Delicious Turkey Burgers

I made these burgers for my family a few weeks ago.  David told me they were “fantastic” and then proceeded to ask me where his second burger was!  They really were DELICIOUS!  So I made them again and decided I just HAD to share them with y’all.  I bought this seasoning from Big Lots.

If you can find it, BUY IT!!!!  It’s AWESOME!!  I think it’s the little kick that takes these burgers up to the FANTASTIC level.  If you can’t find it use your favorite BBQ seasoning.

You will need
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • hamburger buns
  • sliced sandwich cheese
  • lite mayo
  • salt
  • pepper
  • BBQ seasoning
This makes about 4 medium sized (aka NOT Red Robbin sized) burgers.  Season your ground turkey with BBQ seasoning. I used about 2 tbsp.  Then I formed my meat into patties slightly larger than the buns.  This way as they shrink from cooking you don’t end up with a lil silver dollar sized patty inside your buns!  Cook them in a skillet over med-high heat for about 5 minutes per side.  Add a few sprinkles of salt and pepper to each side of the burgers as they cook.  After they are cooked place cheese slices over the patties cover your skillet and remove from heat.  While your cheese is turning into oooey goooey goodness, toast and lightly butter the buns.  I also spread some lite mayo on mine.  Place your cheesy covered turkey patty into the buns and serve!  I served mine with a salad.  I’m a bit proud of myself for doing that…..I wanted to fry up some salty hot fries SO BAD! Enjoy!!! I have posted to pictures of our San Diego trip for y’all! You can see them HERE!!!


Our San Diego Adventure

I’m ready to head back to San Diego right now!  I can not wait to go back.  It is such a beautiful city.  It is full of hills and mountains.  It’s just amazing!  The beach……WOW!  BEAUTIFUL!  Soft sand, clear blue water, the perfect amount of clouds to block the sun.  AMAZING!  The drive wasn’t so bad either.  I would do it again in a heartbeat!  The San Diego Zoo was INCREDIBLE!  Now I understand why it’s so highly rated and famous.  It is beautifully laid out.  There are many levels and hills to walk up.  Many of the exhibits have multiple animals instead of just the “monkeys”.  Like, the chimpanzees share an area with ducks and otters.  Alice had a wonderful time at the zoo.  She was so happy.  She was so happy the whole stay in San Diego.  I can’t wait to take her again.  This time we will have to visit Sea World!  She just loved the beach.  She keeps seeing her beach pictures cycle on the screen saver and she excitedly starts singing “beach beach beach”.  Speaking of pictures, these here are a few of my favorites.
