I’ll be the first to admit that turkey isn’t always the first thing on my mind when it comes to menu planning. I have long avoided turkey breast, finding it to be dry and lacking in the flavor department. And since I don’t like gravy, there was no way to hide the disappointment.

With the list of things I’m avoiding growing each week and The Husband refusing to eat chicken, I’ve been craving some variety.

Thankfully, ground turkey has been stepping up to the plate in a big way.

We’ve also been gifted a large amount of fresh zucchini (thanks to our generous neighbors) and were needing to put it to good use.

Which is perfect, since I’ve been wanting to try my hand at turkey burgers made with zucchini because everyone says that are the JUICIEST BURGERS EVER. And then, I happened upon a recipe for chicken patties featuring the lovely green courgette.

It was meant to be, y’all.

Also, can we pause for a minute and talk about how finger licking amazing homemade chimichurri sauce is?! I seriously can’t believe that this wasn’t a staple in my life a thousand years ago.

It’s so good I want to lick the mason jar clean every time I sit down to eat a meal with it.

Which is pretty much every single day now that I’ve discovered it.

It’s also why I had a massive amount of fresh parsley laying around my house just begging to be used in something else. (Not really. But I did have some extra.)

The only thing left to say at this point is … just make them.

Okay.

You (and whomever else you’re feeding) will thank you. And hug you. And kiss you. And want to be your best friend because you feed them the best food EVAR.
