The all and nothing Turkey burger

Do you ever have a night when nothing and everything sounds good and you're just at a total loss to figure out the answer to the question, "So what for dinner?"? Well, this was me tonight. I just started grabbing things out of the fridge and perusing the cupboards and one thing led to another and this is what became of it all.

This humble yet delectable turkey burger is full of all sorts of goodies like zucchini, jack cheese, cilantro, bread crumbs, garlic, onion, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.



I also made up some yummy mayo using lemon, cilantro and garlic.



Lucky for me I had a tomato ready on the vine to put with my burger. Yum! There's just about nothing in this world as wonderful as a homegrown tomato. Don't you agree?!



I also had some fresh green beans ready as well. I didn't want my beans to feel left out so I threw a little dollop of my mayo on top of them too. I swear I saw one of them smile!

I chose to serve the burger up on some lightly toasted wheat sourdough bread.

This all and nothing burger turned out to be quite something! :0)

OMG. Turkey burgers are a food that I am somewhat of an expert on. MY KIDS LOVE THEM.

I kind of treat them like meatloaf and put in finely shredded carrots, a piece of bread, egg, sage, garlic, salt, and parsley. Finished with cheddar cheese they GOBBLE THEM.

I love them for a snack too. Mmmmmmm.

You probably know what I am thinking so I wont even write it...

Ha! I have those moments all the time. The Boyfriend comes in, finds me staring somewhat catatonically into an open fridge or cupboard, and knows not to ask "what's for dinner?"

I WISH I could come up with something like this when nothing sounds good. But since I can't, I'll just bookmark this for the next time it happens!

(And this is the first summer that I've experienced the bliss of homegrown tomatoes and they are so fantastic that I've started eating them like apples.)
