Hi there! Happy Thursday! Like I keep saying this week, it’s really flying by! I feel like I was just saying it’s Monday. Crazy how everything is flying by so quickly. It’s not just this week that is going by fast. I feel like everything is going by so fast and I’m not able to take in each moment and appreciate things. I mean we are almost 4 months away from getting married! That is just beyond crazy to me. I can’t believe it’s going to be here before we know it. That is insane. Although, I am more than ready. I do have a decent amount of things to still get done but I know after this weekend, the majority of my questions will be answered and I will be able to proceed. Exciting!
Since I posted about Wedding Talk Wednesday yesterday, I promised you a delicious recipe that I made for dinner on Tuesday night. I promised and I didn’t forget. I am going to discuss this recipe today. It is absolutely delicious and I highly recommend you try it!
Kraft Foods has come out with a new line of seasoning packets called Fresh Take. These packets contain a seasoning packet and shredded cheese. They come in a variety of flavors and have several recipe ideas attached to the packaging. The flavors that they come in are: Southwest Three Cheese, Italian Parmesan, Rosemary and Roasted Garlic, Cheddar Jack and Bacon, Chili Lime and Panko, and Savory Four Cheese. My supermarket didn’t have a lot of these flavors. They only had maybe 2 or 3. I think it was closer to 3. I really want to try all of them except for the Cheddar Jack and Bacon. I am not a bacon fan unless it’s turkey bacon. I really would like to try the Chili Lime and Panko. That sounds delicious and I’m sure it would taste great with chicken. I’m definitely going to be on a search to find that flavor for sure! Which one would you most like to try?
I decided to go with the Savory Four Cheese especially since the recipe on the packaging called for Ground Beef and we ended up buying a package of organic ground beef because we wanted hamburgers.
To put everything together is really simple and easy! All you do is place the ground beef in a large bowl. Empty the contents of the cheese packet and the breadcrumb seasoning packet on top of the ground beef. Then add 2 tsp of water. Mix everything until it’s well combined.
In the recipe, they tell you to grill the hamburgers. I am not the grillmaster in my house and since I was preparing these, I decided to just bake them in a 425 degree oven for about 20 minutes or so until it was well done. I prefer my burgers well done with no pink.
This was by far one of the best hamburgers I ever had in my entire life! Mike said the same exact thing! I knew my stomach was going to enjoy it after eating it but I sure did! It was worth the pain that I felt afterwards. I would totally use these seasoning packets again! It made preparing dinner so quick and simple. It was flavorful and I really enjoyed it. I cannot wait to try some of the seasonings on chicken. I need to find that Chili Lime and Panko one. That just sounds so good to me! Do you like hamburgers? What kind of burgers do you like? What restaurant is your favorite place to get a burger?
Last night, I decided to keep things simple because my stomach was feeling rather off. So I decided to go with Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Soup and toast with Earth Balance butter on it.
I thought the soup was actually pretty good! I am a fan of butternut squash soup. I love the pumpkin type flavor of it and the hints of cinnamon. It’s so comforting. It would have been really good with a dollop of sour cream or greek yogurt. Sadly, I didn’t think my stomach could handle that so I passed. It was still good though regardless. Sometimes a bowl of soup is just so comforting.
Alright, that is all I have for today. One more day till the weekend! Have a great Thursday!
