Salmon Burgers for #WeekdaySupper
#SundaySupper has added #WeekdaySupper!! This month I have Salmon Burgers for #WeekdaySupper as we are all doing Easy Meals. If you follow my blog you have seen #SundaySupper and the mission is to bring families together around the supper table again. We almost always eat together unless something has pulled one of us away but I would say it is 5-7 nights a week we come together for a meal.
It is an important time of day for us all. To discuss what we are up to and how our day went. What the evening still has in store for us and tasks or the enjoyment of some relaxation together watching some TV (okay mommy kind of rules the big TV upstairs with all that I have PVR’d but that is besides the point).
We like to share our meals together. Amber is a stellar eater and always has been. She is willing to try anything and almost always enjoys it. She is a healthy eater too and loves her fruits and veggies. These things will happen if you come together to share a meal and you start to do it from day one! If you haven’t come together for a while start with Sunday Supper and before you know it it has come a way of life.
Easy meals don’t have to be boring. You just need some ideas to help you and this is what we are here for. Today’s #WeekdaySupper meal is easy and something different than a regular hamburger. These easy burgers can be put together and on the table in 20 min. They go great with sweet potato fries or a nice big salad.
You family will be loving you for it. These big juicy burgers will easily feed a family of six or have some leftovers for lunch the next day. They are great. We have made them a few times now and are in our recipes to try again folder!! Thanks Tasha and Mike for our wonderful hamburg press, we love it. ENJOY!!!
