Future-Wifey Of The Year

Sunday, JB got up at the butt-crack of dawn (6:45am) for god knows what reason. I continued my hibernation as most normal people would on a weekend with no plans. He came in at 8am to tell me that he was going to go to the gym, but I wasn't really feeling that well, so I decided to stay in bed for a while. As I knew he would, he called me on his way home to ask if I needed anything and I requested my grande skinny hazelnut latte for delivery. He asked if I would get the breakfast stuff out so we could get started upon his return.

I took it upon myself to not only get everything out, but time the pancakes, eggs, and sausage so perfectly that I had just finished plating our food when he walked in the door. And of course I had turned on the pregame show for football and also set both channels so all he had to do was press "last" to get to the other game. This alone provided the coveted title of "future-wifey of the year" according to him.

But I didn't stop there.

JB is not the most technologically (okay, maybe common sense) savy person and as soon as the game began, he was running back and forth from the couch to the office to check is ridiculous fantasy football stats. I reminded him that the laptop was right there on the bar and he could just use that instead of running back and forth. He then began moving back and forth between the couch and the bar. I then showed him that the laptop is actually mobile, and moved it over to the couch where he was sitting. He was in heaven!

After I got him all set up with that, I headed off to do the grocery shopping. When I have the time, I actually enjoy grocery shopping and I would rather do that than hear him yell at the tv, so off I went. I got all of the staples and then some stuff to try a couple of new recipes. I returned home and made some banana-chocolate chip muffins that I cannot recommend. They definitely tasted like they were good for you. In fact, I won't even bother posting the recipe here. But for dinner, I made a recipe one of my friends had just sent me that I can't recommend enough:

Feta Chicken Burgers
  • 1lb uncooked ground chicken or turkey breast
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 7 tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
  • 4 sandwich thins
  • Jar of roasted red peppers
  • Small can of sliced olives
  • 4 leaves of red leaf, green leaf, or romaine lettuce

Preheat grill or broiler

In medium bowl, combine meat, cheese, oregano, and garlic powder and mix well. Divide mixture into 4 balls and flatten into patties.

Grill about 7 or 8 minutes each side

Serve on bun topped with peppers, olives and lettuce.
