[032] Christmas is coming

Christmas is Saturday. I'm excited! I'll be celebrating at my apartment, with Shawno. :D Later that day we'll join his Mom and family. I'm a little bummed I won't be seeing my own family this year, but it's understandable. Why?

BECAUSE I'M FLYING HOME ON JANUARY 22ND!!! It's official. I've scheduled my (free) round-trip flight for January 22 - February 5. Two weeks in Wichita Falls, Texas to visit the family. My sister's baby shower is January 29th, so I'm planning on helping her sort through the items she receives while also setting up the nursery.

In addition to this fun post about Christmas and family, I'd like to start listing what sort of New Years goals I'd like to achieve.

-eliminate soda from my diet
-possible career change (Working at my current place of employment is super, but I'd rather have a job outside of retail.)
-keep a weekly journal
-craft (scrapbook, paint, drawing, etc) on a regular basis

[031] Veggie Burger v-card


And it was delicious! Yes, it was a Boca burger.
This is the recipe I followed (sorta): http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Totally-Vegged-Out-Burgers/Detail.aspx
I didn't take a picture of my first burger because I didn't have tomatoes. I thought it looked rather lacking without the tomato. So I'm using the image from the recipe link.

Totally Vegged Out Burger


  • 1 veggie burger (Any flavor. I chose the original Boca Burger.)
  • 1/4 small zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons cucumber (I diced mine.)
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh dill (I didn't use fresh dill)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dillweed
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning salt
  • 1 whole-wheat hamburger bun (I used white bread hamburger buns, simply because I don't like the taste of whole-wheat breads.)
  • 1 slice tomato
  • 2 teaspoons red onion (I pretty much minced my red onion so that it lays with the zucchini really nice.)


  1. Cook veggie burger according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, use vegetable peeler to cut zucchini lengthwise into very thin strips. Set aside. In small bowl stir together cucumber, yogurt, dill and seasoning salt. Serve burger in bun with tomato, zucchini, yogurt mixture and red onion.
