Off to Daytona Beach!

Adam and I decided to head down to Daytona for the weekend – we got an awesome deal on the oceanfront Hilton and it’s only an hour drive, so why not? Little did we know how much STUFF you have to pack for a little weekend trip with a toddler! Good thing we bough a bigger SUV!

We left Jax around lunchtime and got checked in and relaxed for a bit – we let B stretch his legs, explore the room and had a little snack before heading out.

We wandered around for a bit..

And Braden found some puddles to stomp in..

We headed over to Johnny Rockets for dinner, thanks to Kelly for the suggestion – it was REALLY good!

B goes to bed around 7:30, so we headed back to the hotel for bath time and bed time.. B needs his rest for the busy day tomorrow!

Chicken Parmesan Burgers

These were super easy to make and really good. We both liked them and it was a nice change from our normal rotation. I don’t like mushrooms, so we left those out of the original recipe and served them without buns to save a few calories.


1 lb. ground chicken
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
3 tbsp. chopped flat leaf parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, finely diced
Salt and pepper
Pasta sauce
Mozzarella or provolone cheese (sliced or shredded)


In a medium bowl combine all of the ingredients for the burgers. Mix well until thoroughly combined. Form the mixture into 4 patties. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.

Preheat the broiler. Spray the broiler pan with cooking spray. (Alternatively, cook the burgers on an outdoor grill or grill pan.) Broil the burgers for 4-6 minutes on one side, then flip and broil for 4-6 more minutes on the other side until fully browned and cooked through. Remove from the oven, top each burger with pasta sauce and cheese. Place back under the broiler for 30-60 seconds until the cheese is melted. Top with sautéed mushrooms if desired, and serve on toasted hamburger buns.
