You read that right, today I am bringing you a recipe for a stir fry burger. It will knock your socks off, trust me! It combines two of my favorite things, burger and stir fry all in one delicious meal. I am going to show you how to make these today so first you have to start with some amazing ingredients.
I went over to Safeway and picked out some Fortune Yakisoba Teriyaki stir fry noodles. They were in the refrigerated section near the fruits and vegetables.
Open up the pack and put the noodles and 1/4 cup water in a microwave safe bowl. Then add seasoning and stir. Microwave for 3 minutes.
Stir again once you take it out of the microwave.
Turn the bowl into a cutting board and cut your noodles up.
Put the noodles into a bowl and pour in 1/2 up parmesan cheese.
Stir and put in the fridge for 8 minutes.
While that is chilling, in a skillet, put half an onion, 1 tsp of minced garlic, 2-3 pieces of cooked bacon and salt and pepper.
Saute until onions are caramelized then add 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce and combine.
Add to the chilled noodles and let chill for another 8-10 minutes.
Shape the noodles into the shape of a burger patty and chill for a few more minutes.
While the burgers are chilling toss together the asian salad. I got a ready-made salad from Safeway that came with dressing and toppings.
Get one egg and whisk it really good.
Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray. Brush the tops with the egg and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Once it is golden brown, take it out of the oven and put the burger on a bun and top with the salad and enjoy!

The older generation has always had a special place in my heart. I can still remember my grandmother and I going to visit our local nursing home. We would bring them little snacks or just visit with them for a while. When my grandmother and grandfather were alive, I used to help care for them and I spent a lot of time with them. They taught me so many valuable lessons in life that I could never repay them for.
Shopping can be stressful so it’s nice to have a one stop shop for things like prescription refills, free health screenings, and health-related products. This week I went to Sam’s Club to pick up some Poise® Pads – Maximum Absorbency (5 dot). Sam’s Club has so many great products for caregiving needs like Poise® Pads – Maximum Absorbency (5 dot), Depend® Fit-Flex® Underwear for men or women, and Poise® Liners – Light Absorbency (2 dot).
When you go to your club, you can find these items near the pharmacy.
I picked up some Poise Pads for a project I am working on for our local donation site for seniors. A few years back I donated some items when our town was affected by a fire so I now go to this site when I have extra items for seniors.
Poise Maximum Absorbency Pads provide a maximum amount of absorbency to give you the protection you need for your Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). Even though I am not a senior, I have used this product before since having 4 kids can really wreck your bladder. Their absorb-loc® core locks away wetness and odor, while the leak-block* sides provide discreet protection.
If you buy the Depends, when you open your Depend packaging and it will have a sticker inside that you can use to redeem at the pharmacy for an awesome caregiver sample kit! How awesome is that? I plan to do that the next time I visit. And when you download the Digimarc Discovery app, you can scan anywhere on the Depend packaging, and it will send you to the Sam’s Club Caregiver website.
For my easy DIY storage tutorial I made this super cute storage solution for your bathroom. I bought some storage bins and if you buy the ones that are lined you can either take out the liners for a more rustic look or leave them in. I am leaving them in so you can store your Poise Maximum Absorbency Pads more discretely.
First I started out with a sad and bare wall that needed some sprucing up!
Map out where you want to hang your bins on the wall. I just used a pencil.
Get a screw and screwdriver and screw the bins in the wall. Then fill them with your bathroom items.
I filled one with Poise Maximum Absorbency Pads. How cute is this? I have these storage bins in 2 of my bathrooms because it creates more storage.
You can also use these when gifting a box of Poise Maximum Absorbency Pads to someone you love. If my grandmother were still alive I would bring them these over to her house and install them myself.
We were provided free tickets in exchange for an honest review.
Every year we get to visit Copper Mountain during the summer and this summer was even better than the last. I’m not even sure how that is possible since we had such a fantastic time last year. We brought a few friends a long this time and it was a blast. We started off at the play ground which was new from last year. My youngest was only 1 last year so we didn’t do a whole lot of the activities but this year I was surprised at just how many he could do. He and his bff never wanted to leave this play ground!
We spent some time at the lake on the bumper boats, hydrobikes and zipline.
I could not believe my littlest was so brave and did the Bungee jump trampoline!
You can also rent these cool bikes called digglers and ride them from activity to activity.
The only thing I forgot to take a picture of was the go karts! While we were there that day they had a concert going on which was fun to hear live music while we walked around. Copper has so many activities going on almost every week so check their website and visit when they have something fun going on.
We plan to make this a yearly visit because we always have so much fun. If your from out of town this would be such a fun summer vacation that I highly recommend and one you won’t forget.

We were provided a complimentary stay for this review.
My husband and I have been married for 11 years and we have not found a place as special as the place we stayed at our honeymoon…until now. Collective Retreats in Vail, Colorado is truly one of the most amazing places I have been to in forever. I can take or leave traditional camping but if you tell me we are going luxury camping, I will have my bags packed. I love the outdoors but I have had 4 kids in 8 years so I am more than tired and need more than what sleeping on the ground in a sleeping bag can offer me.
The accommodations at Collective Retreats offers tent camping taken to a whole new level. I basically want to live there. The day we were going to arrive, they texted me with their phone number and told us to text them when we got close and if we had any questions to call or text. They met us at the ranch and lugged all our suitcases to our tent. They were so nice and attentive.
The only thing I was nervous about was the bathroom situation. We had just got back from camping in Durango and the bathrooms were a communal bathroom and a hefty walk from our cabin. So I was wondering what these teepees were and they turned out to be our bathrooms!
It had a toilet, shower and sink and the shower even had hot water and just steps from our tent. I was impressed.
When we got there, all I wanted to do was lay in the bed. It was a huge bed, with white bedding and looked like a dream.
That night we opted for the BBQ in a box dinner. They set up a table and chair, and delivered our food right to us. You can also opt for their famous farm to table dinner. If you’re looking to experience a one of a kind dining experience, this is it! Find out more about that here.
My lovely husband grilled our food while I enjoyed the scenery.
And they even gave us some gourmet s’mores for later that night. You an choose to have a private fire and roast your s’mores with just you and your honey or they also have a communal campfire where the staff and guests all get together and roast them together.
This was our private fire pit area. I wanted to roast s’mores but my husband fell asleep so I didn’t let them go to waste and just ate them out of the package like any civilized woman would do.
I just loved all the decorations they used in the tents. It made the whole stay feel authentic.
In the morning we woke up and this was our view. How incredible? They had luxury robes for our use, a coffee bar, and someone from the staff had delivered homemade bread and chocolate spread to our door. The entire place was incredible but the little touches they added put it over the top.
After enjoying the bread and coffee we walked up to the food tent for our gourmet breakfast.
We got to choose from a few things and it was so yummy. The chef was so attentive and made a mean burrito for me.
I kept putting off this post because it meant our stay was actually over. I cannot wait to go back….soon. To learn more about Collective Retreats and luxury tent camping go to CollectiveRetreats.com.
