|Tuesday Night Dinner - Ground Beef and Zucchini Burgers
Usually, when I buy ground beef and cook it to add to spaghetti sauce or for the filling for curry puffs, etc., I add some vegetables to it; usually, onions, celery, and carrots. Partly to extend the amount of ground beef and partly, to get more vegetables into me!
Last night, when I made my ground beef burgers, I added some minced onion (about 1/4 of an onion) and one grated zucchini! I squeezed out as much water as I could out of the grated zucchini before I added it to the ground beef, added the minced onion, some garlic salt, a little regular salt and pepper, and some soy sauce, mixed it all well to combine, and made the burgers.
This was the first time I have added zucchini to the burgers, and wasn't quite sure how it would turn out, but, it turned out really well! The burgers were very flavorful and best part of it (to me) was that I couldn't taste the zucchini in it! Which is a good thing! LOL! The more vegetables I can
I cooked some broccoli and 1/3 cup frozen corn to accompany my burgers and it was a very filling dinner for me. Much later, when I got the midnight munchies, I ate another small burger, by itself, and the papaya I had planned to have for dessert, which I didn't have, earlier, and some almonds. Since I didn't go to sleep until after 4:00 a.m., I had plenty of time to digest my midnight meal! As I told my daughter, I have my breakfast before I go to sleep!
I woke up to the sound of rain, this morning, and strong gusts of wind rattling the windows. I am planning to stay home, today, do another load of laundry (I did one load, last night - the cushion covers of one of the sofas in the family room; will do the covers of the other sofa, today), maybe knit (I unraveled what I had done on the grey sweater sleeve, and started over, again, last night), wait for the new trash cans to be delivered, and maybe sew. I need to cook the chicken drumsticks, too. Yes, I am procrastinating doing housework and paperwork!
Have you tried adding zucchini to your burgers? Do you think you might try it?
