for time & Burgers.

So some people ask how I get things done around my house, spend time with the babies, make food, & Blog?!
A lot of the workouts I do over at GPP are "for time", So the workout is on the board and once the trainer says GO! and hits the clock. You push yourself to get the workout done as. fast. as. you. can.
I took this type of training and implemented into my house chores ;)

Write all the things you need to get done. Wait till babies go down for a nap.. And start your timer... Then GO! You will be surprised how quick and clean your house can get! Even work up a little sweat! Then you may find some free time to do things for you! Such as reading, maybe a shower.. (if your into that type of thing), paint your nails, shop online (thats my husbands favorite!)  etc. 
Give it a GO and see if it works for you :)
Onto the burgers! Last night, Brents brother and fiance came over to make their infamous Deer Burgers!  
Yes, I said deer... My husband is a hunter, I came from a hunting family so the hunting of deer, ducks, etc. Doesn't bother me really. I could NEVER do it myself but I actually don't mind the fresh meat. That isn't pumped with hormones and such.. I know exactly where it comes from. Deer is actually a LEAN meat. 



  • 1.5 pounds of Ground deer meat (You could use ground Turkey, Beef, Chicken)
  • 1/2 C. Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 Yellow onion
  • 1 3 inch  jalapeno or more if you like it spiiiiicy!
  • 4 T. or so.. Worcheschire Sauce
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 t Garlic 
  • 1/2 t. Sea salt
  • Whole Grain Buns 
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Additional desired toppings

Heat up Grill--high heat
Mix first 8 ingredients together in a bowl
Form medium sized patties
Place on grill for 6 minutes on one side, 4 minutes on the other.
Transfer to dressed bun and ENJOY!

Rutabaga/Parsnip fries would totally compliment this meal... Give it a try! 

Look who is 9 months old today!! I can't even believe it...
Yes, they are almost crawling... I may be a little more busy in the future! 

Hope your having a great week!! YAY! For Friday tomorrow!! 

Q. Does anyone else get stuff done around their house in crazy ways like me?

Q. Deer anyone? Does anyone like any kind of "wild game" Bison, Duck etc?


  1. I have done the timer thing before when I needed to do a quick clean, works well!

  2. My husband, too, is a hunter and I have learned to love deer and elk meat! The smell when elk is cooking literally makes me sick, but I sure do love the way it tastes!

    And I'm a total list maker too =)

  3. That is totally the attitude I take towards my chores (and I don't even have the babes yet ;)). I think its awesome that you're able to do so much. Happy 9 months to the peanuts! My husband loves buffalo. I wonder if he'd enjoy deer?

  4. accidental country girl- totally!! I don't love the smell of elk cooking either but my hubs has mastered it. So its worth it in the end!

    Erica- Ya! Seriously, you almost have to do chores this way in order to get everything done before the babies wake up so you will be pro! I bet he would like deer. You have to cook it just right though or it can be a little dry.

  5. Love elk meat it's my favorite- deer is ok but not as good as elk. My hubby is also a hunter so I have mastered cooking with it- it's as organic and lean as it gets!!

  6. We love elk meet but antelope burgers are my favorite. My Mom married the hunter of all hunters...and we've always got fresh meat and fish in the freezer!
