One of the best things about these burgers? It was our first time using our little grill! Terry's grandpa gave us a small grill in July, and we finally used it today! Look at my proud husband.
|What a stud!|
- 1 pound ground beef or turkey (we used organic, grass fed beef)
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
- 1 poblano pepper, finely chopped (I put half in the beef and half in the guac)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Terry's awesome seasoning (or taco seasoning of your choice)
Mix up the beef, onion, pepper, and seasoning and form into burgers. Grill 3 minutes on each side on a grill or in a grill pan (for turkey, cook longer).
|The onion and peppers in the beef made for fantastic flavor!|
- Whole wheat buns
- Manchego, pepper jack, jack, or cheddar cheese
- Sour cream
Honestly, Terry and I were thrilled these turned out as delicious as they did! We loved them. And we're already super excited to grill more!
In other news, thank you so much for the feedback on last night's post. My dad, a phenomenal leader and team player, had this tidbit to add to the conversation:
When people make comments directed at me, I do take the time to listen and self-evaluate. No one is perfect, so listening for "positive criticism", can be healthy for self-improvement. For other negative comments, sometimes its important to have a follow-up discussion so the other person has an opportunity to change their impression or perspective.Well said, Pops.Team building is something I really enjoyed as a leader. For most of my life, I have fallen into, volunteered for, or successfully tested for leadership positions. One of the great roles I found in team building was finding the strengths and weaknesses of each member, including the "leader", then building upon those. Every member gets to contribute to the team through projects or events. Sometimes a leader has to help a team member get out of their comfort zone, by tactfully placing that person in a carefully orchestrated lead role. More often than not, each member better understands what "team" means and how everyone has a value to that team.
Also, in honor of the day and in the spirit of recognizing heroes in our country, I wanted to share an article about a young CHP officer who was recently killed and then saved four lives. Have you considered becoming a donor? To read the article about CHP Officer Kenyon Youngstrom, click here.

My family has been touched by organ donation, and on today in particular I'd like to share what a wonderful gift it is.
