Morning! How are y’all doing today?
Last night was a delicious and simple dinner: turkey burgers and sweet potato fries!
For the fries I took 2 sweet potatoes, cut them into a fry-like formation, and coated with 1 tbsp olive oil, salt + pepper, and garlic powder. Bake in one layer at 425 for 20 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes. YUM! Salty, garlicky, yum 🙂
The burgers were easy too: 1 lb 96/4 ground turkey, a bunch of Mrs. Dash (original kind), 1/2 tsp salt, fresh ground pepper, 1 egg. Mix well (with your hands!!!) and form into patties. I grilled them about 5-6 minutes on each side since the meat was still a little frozen, and they came out perfectly done. I did 3 patties and we had them on whole wheat buns with a little shredded cheddar.
Breakfast this morning was the leftover turkey burger (that’s right, you read it correctly!)
When I last left y’all I was feeling really down and out about not having any clear direction for my life. Well, last night I took some great advice: stop feeling down about yourself, get out and serve someone. I needed a swift kick in the tail to understand that my life isn’t actually about ME. I was letting one of our friend’s dogs out for her, and saw that she needed a little help with the dishes. While my pups and her dog were running around the back yard, I did her dishes for her (which wasn’t really all that much, but I know how much having dishes to do can stress you out). I immediately felt better, not because I needed that praise to make myself feel good, but because I knew that this would really help her out a lot. I forgot all about my “work woes” and just delighted in the fact that she was going to have a better night now.
I’m still worried/freaking out about what I want to do with my life, but the urgency is somewhat smaller. I know that what I’m doing now is not a forever career, and I’m just anxious to get to whatever that forever career is. However, I am slowly understanding that everything happens for a reason, and there must be a really good one as to why I’m going through this moment right now!
On a lighter note, what’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten for breakfast? I wanna know! 🙂
