Cranberry Pistachio Turkey Burgers

Happy Fall Break! I’m so glad that we finally have a break from class and that I was able to come home for a couple of days. It was so great to see my family and my old marching band. Nothing says welcome home like a sushi date with my mom, a trip to Whole Foods. walking the dogs, and the opportunity to cook dinner in a kitchen with floor and counter space. Gotta love it!

Although I’m sad that I have to leave this afternoon and that I’m missing my sister who comes home tonight, I’m grateful for the day I got to spend with my family and I’m so excited to be coming back home again in a couple of weeks! Hurray for weekends off!

In any case, this post will be short and sweet – just like the recipe – because I’ve got a standing Maury date with my BFF in a bit. Oh the joys of being home:)


PS. Today is World Mental Health Day. Please take this time to hug a loved one and make an effort to treat everyone with kindness and respect. One in four people has a mental illness, and everyone deserves love and compassion. It’s up to us to support each other. There’s my PSA for the day. 😉
