Holy Cheeseburger!

I found this recipe in a Rachael Ray magazine and I thought I would give it a whirl. However, I changed a few ingredients. Instead of ground beef I used ground turkey and I swapped out regular cream cheese for low-fat cream cheese. I also used Ginger-Wasabi dressing as the main condiment and a dab of Dijon mustard. The results: AMAZING!

Inside-Out Cheeseburgers

Ingredients:
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (2 to 3 ounces)
2 ounces low-fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
Salt, pepper and crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Condiments of choice, for serving

something strange

If you have never have used http://www.futureme.org/ I would highly recommend it! The premise is that you send a letter to yourself into the future. It is really fun, especially if some time has passed and you find yourself in a different place then you were before. Such is the case of a FutureMe e-mail I received today! And today of all days! All my friends know why today is significant so I won't get into it... Anyway, I am in utter shock over this e-mail from the past! Almost everything in my life is different then where i was a year ago! I really challenged myself to hopefully to be living a better and more fulfilling life. And really, I am! I am not who I was, and I am in a much better place then before. Overall this has been a pretty good year, with one really crappy thing that happened. But if that crappy event didn't happen, I wouldn't be where I am at now. So everything worked out as it was supposed to. Now I will go send myself another future e-mail to this time …
