Today was one of those eat-what’s-in-the-house days. I dug around a bit, and came up with these:
I worked early, went to the gym…and then I really needed to eat lunch (at 10:45 this morning).
Sweet Onion Sliders with Roasted Tomatoes and Blue Cheese
For the burgers: I used a mixture of ground bison and sweet onion bison sausage, added 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, and then formed it into three small burgers. I’m not sure exactly how much meat it was, about 1/4 lb. While you’re cooking the burgers, make coconut flour flatbread, and add 1 tsp oregano and 1/2 tsp onion powder to the batter. You’ll want 6 small flatbreads (instead of 4).
To the bottom piece of flatbread, add a thin layer of cheese (I used mozzarella, but use whatever you like). Next place the burger on top of the cheese (the warm flatbread and the hot burger will melt the cheese). Top the burger with roasted tomatoes, blue cheese, and a small scoop of roasted tomato salsa. Place the flatbread lids on, squish it down a little bit, and serve!
This tasted really amazing. I wish I had had someone to share with! I’m looking forward to making more sliders with different toppings!
How was your day? Did you go to the gym or do something active? I’m going to be starting a new fitness challenge soon, and as soon as I get the stuff I ordered in the mail, I’ll fill you in. I’m finding that focusing and goal-setting for working out is working pretty well for me. If I stay aimless, I don’t work as hard and it’s way easier to take days off!
I’m also resisting my overachiever tendencies and not going to another yoga training this June. Whenever I do something new, I think I need to jump in and learn all about it, and become an expert at it. This approach has sometimes served me well, sometimes caused me to waste money, and sometimes just been fun but not productive.
I’m working on not always trying to get to the next thing or take a next step–just enjoying where I am. For now, I have already decided what to focus on, and I have to ask myself the question whenever a new “thing” comes up that I could do or learn about…
“Is this going to lead me toward my goal?”
If no, then I just don’t need to do it (so I nixed the yoga training, even though I’m sure it would be fun). I need to choose the activities that will lead me down the path to my goal and not get distracted by things that (although they may be good and/or fun) will not lead me there.
Are you good at focusing on a goal and working toward it, or do you get distracted with other things?
I was lucky today—it was so nice outside, and I was done with work early enough so I could visit Matthew after school. I made him cuddle with me, but don’t tell him I told you. I’m pretty sure cuddling is not cool anymore since he’s 8. I also visited some of my favorite people while they played on the playground. It seemed to stay daylight a little later, and it was definitely the warmest day we’ve had this year. There’s hope for spring!
