Strawberries... my favorite part of summer

I forgot how yummy a Summer Strawberry can be. I just ate an entire
ziplock of strawberries dipped in fat-free sourcream and sugar. Shhh...

Turkey is not just for Thanksgiving Folks!!!

Okay, I must confess that since I tivoed Oprah when Sex and the City was on
I have been taping it daily. And for good reasons... I am convinced that Oprah
knows all... she certainly knows her turkey!

On Thursday's show she had a chef from Donald Trump's resteraunt and share
his recipe for what she calls the BEST BURGER she has ever eaten.

Well... I made it on Sunday night and I think I must agree. The main ingredient is
extra lean ground turkey (which can sometimes be dry) and the secret ingredient is
granny smith apples. It makes it SO MOIST and SO YUMMY! I served mine with avocado
and melted Havarti cheese.

Stuffed with Stuffed Peppers!

Tonight for dinner I tried my hand at Stuffed Peppers!
I sauteed 97% fat free beef with onion, garlic, tomatoes, bulgar, oregano, shedded
zuchinni and a can of tomatoes. I added salt, pepper, cumin and red pepper. Later I stuffed green and red peppers with the combination and baked for 20 minutes at 350. I then topped 1/2 with provolone and the other 1/2 with Blue Cheese. (I think I preferred the provolone and Scott the blue cheese... tomato/ tomato!)

Either way so yummy! Will definitely do it again. Plus, Ellie from the food network says Bulgar has 65% off your daily fiber! No wonder why I feel so full. Perfect to veg while watching GREY'S ANATOMY :)
