Happy 8th Birthday, Blog!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy Birthday dear bloogggggiieeee

Happy Birthday to you!

What? I’m allowed to wish my own blog a happy birthday-anniversary-whatever, aren’t I?

The Sunflower’s Scribbles is 8 years old today.

That’s 737 posts total. I have no idea how many words those 737 posts add up to, but I’m going to guess they’re fairly substantial at this point.

For past blog birthdays, I’ve dug through the blog archives, I’ve posted short stories, I’ve shared memes and quotes.

This year? Have a recipe!

In the past year or so, my cooking has come along. I’ve still very much a beginner-type cook–also a fairly lazy cook, in that I don’t want to make anything overly complicated.

Turkey Burgers

My mom really, really likes my version of this recipe for turkey burgers.

Ingredients:
1 pound of ground turkey
Mushrooms, chopped finely. I usually do a whole thing of mushrooms. Doesn’t matter what kind.
One whole bell pepper or several mini bell peppers, chopped finely.
Two to three green onions, chopped.
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup of dijon mustard
1 egg
salt and pepper and other seasonings to taste

Put all the ingredients into a bowl.
Mix together.
Form into patties–I can usually get 6 patties out of this recipe.
Oil in a pan.
Once the oil is heated up, patties in the pan.
Leave the patties cook about four to six minutes on that side before flipping it over.
Check that it’s cooked; make sure the turkey meat has turned whiteish. Stick a fork in the center. If the juice coming out runs clear, you’re good.

Voila!

  1. Wow, 8 years is such a long time. Your blog would be in year 3 at school by now, playing after school sports and asking for help with its maths homework. Happy birthday, blog!
