Why I’m Not a Food Blogger
Did Kermit fall in the food processor?
Nope; mommy’s meddling with perfectly good recipes again! A few days ago, Karen at Mignardise posted a beautiful-looking turkey burger photo and recipe. I’ve been cooking a lot with Mooch and have been trying to get back to eating right since our cruise, so I figured this was a perfect opportunity to sneak some healthy fare onto the table in the guise of burgers.
But I think we went a little overboard processing the spinach. And maybe I shouldn’t have added that dollop of pesto, because it really looks like we made Kermitburgers for dinner.
Actually, because we are Jews, we called them Greenbergers.
Lesson learned, because yesterday I did manage to keep my addled brain from changing a recipe and made a very delicious pesto with basil from our garden. How Martha Stewart does that sound?
I had to use or lose the basil “crop” before it ran from the garden to buy teeny little sweaters from Target, because it’s suddenly Fall here, even though it’s still technically Summer. (I hate it when that happens.)
The recipe came from Susan at Farmgirl Fare, which I stumbled upon when googling for a “light” pesto recipe. The sauce is very low-calorie and light because it’s padded out with fresh tomatoes and has less oil, nuts and cheese than regulation pesto. But it was very, very tasty, as were the greenbergers, BTW. (Despite their frightening appearance in the above photo.)
I don’t have any pictures of either final dish because, well… did you read the title of this post?
