My Big {Skinny} Greek Turkey Burger

I hope everyone had a wonderful OP Valentines Day and stayed away from that chocolate floating around. That stuff is dangerous! I used to eat a ton of chocolate every Valentines Day but not this one! To help my craving for chocolate, I decided to have all my fuelings as chocolate! I had the fudge balls (2 meals), brownie, chocolate peanut butter cup and chocolate crunch bar. I made my own little box of Valentines chocolate. Ha ha! The best part of making your own is that there is no guilt and no extra poundage! We just work too hard to get this far to sabotage what we have accomplished. Unfortunately, I didn't get to talk to my hubby yesterday nor the night before nor this morning again. I think his Internet must not be working properly in Afghanistan. He did email me from work to let me know he was fine and he was going to try and get his Internet fixed today. Hopefully, I will get to talk to him soon! When you are used to talking to someone twice a day, bad things go through your mind when you don't hear from them especially when they are in a war zone. It was a total let down that we could not talk yesterday, but thank goodness he is okay.

I was originally going to start Turkey Burger Week yesterday but I didn't want to start it on "V" Day so I am starting it today. Turkey Burger Week is where I make five different recipes for turkey burgers consisting of Greek, Italian, Thai, Mexican and American. Yeah, I got the International theme going on. The first one I made was this one! A Greek style turkey burger. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Come back tomorrow to check out my Italiano Turkey Burger!
