We had a fun, relaxing weekend. If you follow me on Twitter, you may already know that my weekend included two long hikes. I also spent some time recuperating from them… :-) But there is truly nothing better than spending the early morning hiking to the top of a mountain. I loved every second of it.
On Friday, I saw a tweet from Whole Foods that announced that their Friday deal was grassfeed ground beef for $3.99/pound. I decided to make hubby happy and got some.
As I mentioned in my last post, last week’s CSA box included some hot peppers, and I asked for suggestions what to do with them in my last post. Several of you suggested using the peppers in a sauce for meat or chicken. And that’s exactly what I did. I actually only used two of the peppers so far. I plan on using the others in a salsa (which several of you suggested).
Mini Burgers with Mushroom Pepper Cheese Sauce
The sauce was super easy but tasty. Here are the ingredients:
Mushroom Pepper Cheese Sauce
- 1 onion
- 6 mushrooms
- 2 hot peppers (I’m going to use the other two in a salsa)
- 2 Blue Cheese Laughing Cow wedges
I mixed the ground beef with the following:
- 1 egg
- 6 ground whole wheat crackers
- Dijon mustard
- Worcestershire Sauce
The toddler felt the need to attack them for some reason…
Questions: How was your weekend? What was the best thing you did or ate? I loved my hikes and my mini burgers…
