Positively Purple

I have been busy planning my sisters bridal shower and having such a fun time doing it. She has always been a purple girl and I have always been the pink girl. So I have been pushed a little bit out of my element planning an entire party around the color purple. What I have found is that I really like it, and it may just be one of my new favorite colors...sorry pink.

I have recently been trying very hard to de clutter my life, donating clothing I no longer wear, watching less television and reading more books, making more meals and less trips to the take out place down the street, I even did the UNTHINKABLE I took myself off Facebook for a little while its time for me to worry more about what me and my family are doing and less about where my 1,000 plus " friends" are going for the evening. Im not sure how long this will all last but for now I am really enjoying it! I'm a girl that LOVES color and frankly my Husband wouldn't allow me to have an all white living room but there is something so peaceful and clutter free about all these images below

Hot not Haute...

I recently made these SPICY turkey burgers for me and my Husband and they turned out SOOO SOOO good I had to share the recipe with you!! It was my last hooray before I started a little pre summer detox which definitely does NOT include gigantic turkey burgers. Needless to say it was absolutely delicious, I tweaked the recipe a little and added guacamole to it, pure heaven!! Recipe is below.. bon appetite my sweets !!!!

Spicy Turkey Burgers
Serves 3 to 4

canola oil
1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped [see Kitchen Notes]
1/2 small onion, finely chopped, about 1/2 cup
1 pound ground turkey [see Kitchen Notes]
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder [see Kitchen Notes]
1/2 teaspoon salt

buns, lettuce, purchased salsa

Sauté jalapeño pepper and onion with a little canola oil in a medium-sized nonstick skillet over medium flame, stirring often, for 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to bowl to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, gently mix turkey. cilantro, cumin, chili powder, salt and cooled pepper/onion mixture with your hands until just combined. Form into 3 or 4 patties [I did 3—if you do 4, they will be smallish].

Heat a large nonstick skillet over a medium-high flame. Add a healthy glug of canola oil and sauté turkey patties for 3 minutes on each side; they should be nicely browned. Reduce heat to medium and cook until just cooked through, about an additional 4 minutes.

Serve on buns with lettuce and a dollop of purchased salsa, if desired.
