Thai Chicken Burgers with Mango Salsa


Yesterday was B-E-UTIFUL!! I can’t even get over how gorgeous it was! We spent the entire day outside with our little man! We parked downtown, pulled out the stroller and started walking! It was gorgeous! I was to hot in capris and a light shirt! 80 degrees in March, in Maine! Un-stinkin-heard-of!! I am not complaining at all! It was so enjoyable!( If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you should! ;) Heres a little recap!)


Lets no talk about how as the week goes on it gets colder :( 

 


First we stopped for lunch at one of my favorite places to get a bug juicy Guinness BBQ Burger! And there is nothing better than a gorgeous day, a burger, and beer..they belong together like Peanut Butter & Jelly, Februaries and skellies, After-parties and tellies….Mariah Carey anyone?! hah It was DELICIOUS!

Then we took Aiden out for his first Gelato experience..needless to say, he is definitely my child! He loved it almost as much as I did! We taste tested every single flavor before settling on something I can’t pronounce or spell..lets just say it was the greatest thing ever!

 

After much walking around and eating, we had a sleepy boy on our hands and decided to just relax in the backyard, while he naps, with…dun dun dun MARGARITAS! My favorite drink everrr! It was gorgeous and so perfect!

 

Remember yesterday I was talking all about my Trader Joes trip and the beautiful flowers I always pick up…well here was this weeks beautiful bouquet! Aren’t they GORG?! :D 


Okay Okay, so I should tell you about what you’re really here for…the A++, yummiest burger we’ve ever had, most amazing Thai Chicken Burger! Holy explosion of flavors in your mouth! I don’t even know how to explain this baby! All I can tell you is MAKE IT!! I was so unsure going into it..but wowsers! We were both utterly surprised and impressed with the flavors this has!!


The first bite I took made taste buds I didnt even know I had start blowing up like fireworks! (I’m not exaggerating!) This Thai Chicken Burger was freaking AH-MAZING! The combination of the peanut sauce, which I was so skeptical of, but I swear it tied it all together, and the tangy mango salsa..holy hell this sucker was succulent! There are not enough words to describe it..so just make it! All of it..don’t neglect the peanut sauce or the mango salsa..I’m telling you, the combination is im.press.ive!
Without making this post any longer, I give you the recipe for this heavenly dish! Make it, ASAP! You’ll feel the explosion at first bite!;)
