A Night with the “Bigstew”

My guy best friend Alex also known as The Bigstew came to pick me up to go to the gym last night. I was excited because I had turkey burgers marinating in the fridge so we can have a nice dinner when we were done. We worked out LEGS together. It’s always a pleasure to workout with The Bigstew, he is super knowledgeable, hard worker, fun to be around with and last but not least he pushes me to my limits. I got in his face a couple of times last night and pushed him as hard as he pushed me. After a long two hour workout I was pooped and very light headed, but couldn’t wait to get home to cook my turkey burgers. I put my skillet on med/high heat in order to get the pan hot. I forgot to turn down the heat after I put the burgers in. Suddenly, after a few minutes I couldn’t even see Alex’s face because of all the smoke. I thought my house was on fire. But no…it was the burgers. Of course Alex gave me crap about it, but as usual he will eat anything which I think it is awesome. At least he still thought they were yummy. He called up his mom aka Martha and told her what happened, she is a trip and we are very much a like. LOL I hope some day when I have kids, my kids grow up to eat anything and everything.

Ily said...

Wow! Look at those tasty burgers! lol

The recipe sounds great though. I never would've thought of putting oatmeal in the mix!

I agree with Ily... oatmeal in a burger? Does it make the burned ones extra crispy? (I know, I know...not

Hi. We eat a lot of turkey dinners, one way or another. This is a good way. You're an inspiration. See, I read this post on Sunday afternoon. Sunday evening I made a potato salad with most of your ingredients (cuz that's what was in the refrigerator). Then I added the diced turkey. It's good. Real good! Want some? Try it.

It looks like you'll be sending your art book to me. Looking forward to Ily's project.

Holland:I tend to cook low on oil so i think that was my problem the burgers were sticking too much to the pan

PAUL: I'm glad i was able to contribute to your cooking! I can't wait to send you my sketchbook! LOL beware...LOL
