Friends, I need help. I am sick and tired of my standard lunch and snacks for my days at school. I need food that does not have to be refrigerated or heated up in a microwave and can last a few hours in my bag. I have 7 hour stretches of classes, so I need foods that can hold up. My standard day of food has been peanut butter sandwiches, homemade granola bars, nuts, and carrots. After a month of classes, I feel like if I see one more peanut butter sandwich, I might throw up. Does anyone have any suggestions for meals and snacks on the go? For next week, I’m thinking I’ll do a veggie wrap of some sort and probably a small salad, but I would really love some suggestions!
I had some pesto and whole grain spaghetti that I was going to make for dinner tonight, but earlier in the day I kept craving tastes of summer, one of those being Jeremy’s turkey burgers. Last summer we would have his homemade turkey burgers all the time. IT WAS AWESOME! I happened to mention to him that I was craving one and he readily offered to make them for dinner. I said that I had been planning on making the pesto spaghetti (which, lets be honest, wasn’t really doing it for me) for dinner and for him to take to work the next day. That’s when he broke out the big guns. He suggested that we make the burgers, freeze a bunch for dinners next week and also make sweet potato fries on the side. Obviously I cant say no to sweet potatoes, especially when they are french fried (although I bake mine). So there you have it. Turkey burgers and sweet potato fries. I was sold. Yum.times.a.million!
These turkey burgers definitely hit the spot!
