California Dreamin' Burger

This burger brings us to the west coast of the United States and it brings with it memories of the briny breezes that caress the majestic palms and the surf spray fills the air.  Join us for an amazingly healthy juicy turkey burger served on a crisp organic lettuce leaf.  This is really the best turkey burger we have ever tasted.

1 Pound Ground Turkey
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/2 tsp Himalayan Pink Salt
Mrs. Dash lemon pepper to taste
1 Pastured Egg
1 Small Onion Diced
2 Cloves Garlic Minced

1 Teaspoon Nutritional Yeast

1 Teaspoon Coconut Aminos
1 Teaspoon Fish Sauce

For Topping:

Sliced Organic Tomato
Organic Lettuce (something with a large leaf to hold your burger)
Bell pepper sliced thin
Safflower Mayonnaise
Feta Cheese
Organic Catsup


Chop onions and saute until tender in olive oil add minced garlic and cook until done.
Add this to your ground turkey.  Add egg and spices and mix.  It will be really moist.  Put olive oil in your pan and heat.  We cooked on medium low on our stove but they vary.  Don't cook too high or fast so they don't dry out. Make patties and place in the pan with the warmed oil.  Let sit until they firm up and carefully flip.  Cook about 7 minutes or so on each side.

Wash and pat dry lettuce leaf and place it in a bowl or plate.  With a spatula remove cooked patties from the pan and place on the lettuce leaf.  Top with avocado, slice, bell pepper slice, tomato slice and sprinkle with feta cheese. If you would like to use condiments you can add whatever you like at this point. We like to mash some avocado and add a spoonful of mayonnaise to this and some salt and make an avocado mayonnaise for the burger.

One Ocean Sea World Show

Last year we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Sea World, for the first time in many years. As always it wasn't a letdown!

While there we decided to watch the One Ocean show, dad wanted to sit in the splash zone- we out voted him. Somehow gallons of water in the middle of January and cameras don't seem to go well together.

This show was fun, upbeat and if you happen to sit in the splash zone- wet! These creatures are amazing up close!

It made me wish we had more time to spend here.

They are such amazing creatures.  So huge and powerful - so beautiful.

Every time I see them and makes me love the creatures of the ocean more and more.

Time for a snack. I could use one too, just not raw fish!

Dolphin Show At Sea World

Sea World has to be one of my favorite places! I love how magical it is, like being a kid... anything could happen. I've been here twice in my life, once for my second birthday and the second time for an early birthday present for my 18th birthday. I have to say, it's a great birthday present.

This show was amazing! I absolutely love dolphins so this was spectacular!

This show is so fun, and probably my favorite of all the ones Sea World offers.

I always liked dolphins but I really fell in love with them after Sea World. They taught me a lot about marine life and made me passionate about them.

They are creative and smart and love to have fun.

I could not believe their agility and their relationship with one another.

It made me want to study more about them, which is a good thing!


Look at that adorable face.  Such an amazing animal!

Such strength.  I had no idea they could jump so high or flip like this before going.

I love this one, it l…

SeaWorld | California Trip Day 5

Darling it's better, down where it's wetter, under the sea. Admit it. You heard Sebastian from little mermaid's voice in your head didn't you?

Today we are heading to SeaWorld!

The last time we were here was for my second birthday.

There aren't a lot of people here because it rained this morning. I feel a lot better this morning.

But I can't smell anything. Grrrrrr! This darn cold morphs into something else everyday! We are just a skip from the beach, Mrs. Cottage and Brianna keep saying it smells wonderful. I can't smell anything so I don't know, but I can taste it! That's better than nothing I guess.

By the way, those cleaner fish in the picture up above were awesome! Seriously I want some!

There are so many amazing creatures here! Some I wouldn't want to meet in the wild, though. Some of the fish were absolutely stunning!

This pretty bird just was hanging out watching us as we said hello to the sea lions.  He didn't mind getting close en…
