There are so many things that make me happy. My family, of course, is what brings the most happiness to my life. I love them so much. But, most of the things that make me happy are the little things. Ever since becoming a mom my life has totally shifted.
I used to enjoy buying clothes, getting my hair done, going out for ridiculously priced coffee and what not. Then I had my daughter. I started to do activities that didn’t involve spending. I learned (or semi-learned?) to cook and bake and I started to become an adult. For this, I am very thankful.
Having two little ones makes it tough to get stuff done and I will be the first to admit, though shamefully, that my house is usually a wreck. It never seems to be in order but today, well, today I was able to clean! That made me extremely happy.
Though cleaning may make me happy, burgers make me ecstatic. I guess it was my lucky day today because I got to clean and we had burgers for dinner! What can I say, I am a girl who likes a good burger.
Italian Sausage Burger
- One 16oz package of ground hot Italian sausage
- One 16oz package of mild Italian sausage
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup of quick-cooking oats
- 4 tbsp hickory bbq sauce
- 1/2 tbsp Montreal steak spice
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
In a larger bowl mix together all the ingredients. Then, form eight hamburger patties roughly around the size of your palm.
Cook burger till done. We used a skillet and it took about 12 minutes. First we seared the outsides of the burger on high heat and then turned down the heat to medium-low to cook the rest.
How easy is that?
