Tending to the Garden
Updated: Jul 21, 2020
Mommy and Daddy came over to help Talal and I get a garden going at our home. With all the time we are spending at home - now and in the near future - we thought it would be a good time to build something beautiful despite the despair in our world right now.
Talal and I stopped by Home Depot and selected a wonderful assortment of herbs - arugula, basil, oregano, parsley, cilantro, and mint. Although Talal jetted off to golf with the boys - his first social outing since early-March - we had a wonderful time in the sun, potting and planting our bounty.The fresh-squeezed lemonade didn't hurt either!
As a thank you gesture, I asked them what I could make them for lunch. Mommy ordered a turkey burger, like the way I used to make them.
In addition to the lemon-jalapeno turkey burger on a wheat bun, I went all out on the toppings - arugula, avocado, red onion, chipotle mayo, mustard. It was a beloved and hugely-missed dish of ours.
Knowing that we could all shave off a few calories, I decided to also make Katie Lee's Baked Parm Green Bean Fries. Although mommy was skeptical, she ended up loving them and has mentioned them at least 3 times since we enjoyed our gardening day.
