Ranch Burgers and Garlic Fries


Tonight's dinner is brought to you by Wildtree! I made Turkey Ranch Burgers, Texas Corn Bread and Garlic Fries!   

Although this meal made lots of dishes to wash it was quite easy to prepare! First I made the Wildtree Texas Corn Bread, which was very fortunate since we had no buns....or bread. Then I mixed local ground turkey with a Wildtree Creamy Ranch packet. The real kicker here was the bread crumbs I also added. After the Expo on Saturday I had a TON of left over Beer Bread that I made into garlic croutons. I put a handful in the blender and made them bread crumbs for the burger. I cooked the burgers on the stove top, but I also put the lid on the pan which steamed them up. They were the best tasting and moist turkey burgers I've ever had! 


For a side dish I sliced up some potatoes and tossed them in the Garlic Grapeseed Oil and salt then baked them at 425 for 25-30 minutes. 


 I added Veganaise on the side. I know we don't eat totally vegan anymore, but one you go veganiase you never go back. Plus I love the way it tastes and it makes a good dip for fries. 


What an awesome dinner! 

While I worked diligently all day, my assistant kept our bed toasty warm! 


Isn't he the cutest thing ever?!?!



Since I worked outside of the house all day I rewarded myself with watching Ellen at 4. While I laughed my behind off (not literally my behind is still the same size), I did a Tone It Up workout. I really enjoyed this workout.
