A beautiful day in the neighborhood

The weather in Kentucky is gorgeous right now! Okay, Monday we had sleet but the past few days 70+ degree weather. Today is cooler at 64 but sunny just the same.

It's weather that makes you want to get out and get moving. Today I promised my daughter she could ride her scooter so we are taking the dogs for a walk a little later on. Then I plan on grilling out and enjoy the day.

Turkey burgers are on the menu tonight. These are the most moist scrumptious burgers. I will just have mine on a bed of lettuce and I will slather on a wedge of laughing cow lite.

1tbsp poultry seasoning

2 tbsp Maple syrup

Serve immediately without bread for banders, with usual burger toppings or lite mayo. Another option is to mix some cranberry relish with mayo and serve as a sauce.

I make turkey burgers all the time and would NEVER have thought of putting in apple sauce! Can't wait to try it.

The applesauce keeps it moist and the apples seem to take on the texture of fat. Sounds crazy I know.
