I thought being a mom to one kid would be the most exhausting thing I would ever do. Boy was I wrong. Being the mom to 2 kids under 2...oh boy-this is some other level of exhaustion I didn't even know existed. In college I pulled lots of all nighters - I thought that was rough...again, I was so wrong!
We welcomed our second son into this world at the beginning of December. He is a chunky little fellow who smiles all of the time. He is already an easier baby then our first, but that combined with our toddler is a lot of work. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining! I love our kiddos, and I love our life - we are just really tired and can't wait to get to the part where the baby sleeps through the night.
These days dinner prep looks like this.
Wearing my crying baby in my ergo.
Toddler crying "Up me"...meaning he wants me to hold him too
Toddler asking for every snack food he can think of or demanding I play duplos with him.
Momma trying to stir and cut, clean up, set the table...and not fall over from sleep deprivation.
Papa returns home from work...let there be much rejoicing in the land!!! : )\
That being said this is an easy dinner to throw together!
My Mom came up with this lamb burger recipe and we love it. We don't really eat red meat, but we do make these burgers at least once a month. They are really easy to make and super delicious! They also make a great appetizer if you form them into little meatballs instead and serve with pita bread and tzatziki sauce,
makes 4 burgers
1 Pound ground lamb
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
Mix all ingredients together with hands until well combined. Form into 4 patties. Heat grill or skillet pan. Lightly oil. Cook burgers until browned on both sides and no longer bright pink - same way you cook a beef burger....if you like those more rare then do that with these too.
I usually serve these bunless since we don't do a lot of bread. We eat them with potatoes or sweet potatoes and a veggie. Also good with some ketchup or mayo on them.
