Yahoo! Today is Memorial Day! I hope y’all have had a wonderful weekend playing, having fun, doing house projects, and or relaxing! This weekend has been full of work for us. I posted on Instagram a photo of us ripping out our old carpet in our living room. We’re installing new floors, baseboards, tile, and will be painting our doors.
Today is a day that a lot of us get together with close friends and family and remember those we lost who served our country. Last year for Memorial Day my family and I visited my Grandpa’s grave site. I was really close with my Grandpa. He served in WWII and was enlisted a month after my grandparents were married. He was lucky enough to have survived lived until he was 92 and was married to my Grandma for almost 70 years. He lived a long happy and fulfilling life, but it was still was hard to say goodbye.
On this Memorial Day I’m so grateful for those brave and strong men and women who have given up their lives to serve our country so that my family and I can live with the freedoms we have. I know most of us take our freedoms for granted, I know I do. I was thinking about how lucky I am to have the freedom to write my random thoughts and opinions on this blog. That my family can practice our faith and religion, my children will be able to have an education, and that I have the opportunity to shape my future. So thank you to all of those service women and men who have served our country!
If you’re firing up the grill up today and want to make something that is easy, delicious, and healthy then you gotta make these Feta and Spinach Turkey Burgers. These are perfect if you’re watching your carb intake, or trying to eat healthy.
These burgers take minutes to make. These are the raw burgers right before I put them on the grill.
Dress up your burger with some red leaf lettuce, tzatziki sauce, red onion, cucumber, tomato, and a dash of salt, pepper, and dill.
