Kabocha Bison Burgers and Other Random Things

I don’t eat a ton of red meat but I love bison!  I’ve written about all the wonderful health benefits to bison here.   Bison is pretty much the only red meat that I cook with.  I’m not opposed to eating others, it’s just not really a part of my diet. Last week I had some leftover cooked kabocha squash, which you guys know is one of my favorite things to eat.    Anyways, I came home from work and prepared some really tasty burgers that everyone enjoyed!

The temps are on the rise over here and I intend to soak up as much warm weather as I can.  I’m also running my first mud run on Sunday!  It’s a 5K.  Have you ever done one?  This is my first and I am excited, I just need the weather to cooperate!

Oh, and can I tell you guys something?!  I’ve been hearing buzz about 24 coming back and yesterday I read this article that pretty much confirmed it!  Oh, Jack how I’ve missed you!!!  Soo freaking excited about this!!

That’s all I got!  Have a great day everyone!  I’m off for a sunrise run!

  3. I’m just like you….not a big red meat eater, except my bison! And kabocha is one of my favorite foods, so putting the two together is a great idea!

    I love Bison burgers! When I was in Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, it was pretty popular out there! A little pricey here, but yummy!

    I haven’t done a mud run, but I look forward to your review!
