Happy Fall!!

It's a shame we don't have pretty leaves in our yard. Thank goodness for a daddy who steals leaves from the neighbor's yard so we can have some fun fall pictures;)

Backwards Chicken Burgers

In my Paleo searching, I came across this inspiration. When we eat burgers at home, we always leave the bun out. This is such an easy way for us to cut carbs. I usually just top a turkey burger with lettuce, tomato, avocado, mushrooms, bbq sauce, etc. I thought this was a fun way to change it up a little.

Backwards Chicken Burgers

2 lbs ground chicken
2 eggs
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
paprika, salt, and pepper
fresh lettuce
sliced tomato
slice avocado

Mix your ground chicken, eggs, onion, tomato paste, and seasonings. Form into patties and cook on a griddle until done. Once slightly cooled, slice chicken patties in half. Fill with tomato, lettuce, avocado, and anything else that tickles your fancy.

And there you have it! Backwards Chicken Burgers!!

Turkey Zucchini Chili

This meal is perfect for the colder temps we've had lately. It's easy to throw in the crockpot and makes heaps of leftovers! We usually get three nights worth of meals from this dish. This recipe is inspired by my mom's famous chili recipe...

3 lbs ground turkey
2 onions, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 large cans diced tomatoes
3 medium zucchini, chopped
chili powder, salt and pepper

Brown the turkey. Add in the onion, bell pepper, and zucchini and cook until softened. Add meat mixture with tomatoes and zucchini in crock pot. Season as desired and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
