Cheeseburger Mini Muffins Recipe

These Cheeseburger Mini Muffins are so fun to make and eat. I always gravitate towards meals that allow me to feel like I’m indulging but really I’m not lol. I like that I could eat almost 10 of these. They would also be perfect for a healthier dinner for kids and even as a finger food appetizer for a get together. 

On last week’s recipe post, I shared 10 things I do around the holidays. Today, I wanted to share 5 random things. I don’t know why I’m so into this but it’s just a fun way for us to get to know each other better…. read them while you’re eating and enjoying these cheeseburger mini muffins hehe.

1. I’ve been getting highlights since I was in 7th grade and I normally stick to the shame shade/color of blonde (except for when I’m lazy and don’t go haha). About 3 times now, I’ve tried going more ashy and each time, I  end up disliking it 5 days later. Well, I tried again this year anddd don’t like it again. Will I ever learn?! lol. Do any of you do that? I want to be adventurous but I guess I just like my classic color. 

2. Almost all of the Christmas gifts I’m giving this year have a clever little twist. Some of them are plain silly. Some of them are personalized. Some of them are things people would say, “I can’t believe you thoughts of this.” I’m always into giving gifts (I can thank my mom for that!) but this year, I really can’t wait to see the reactions. You knew I had to slide a little Christmas into this list lol. 

3. I am in a tiny bit of a workout rut this week. I’ve gone to the gym every day but my focus isn’t really there. What I’ve done each day is begin with 10 minutes of walking and turn on fast paced music. It’s been helping pump me up a bit. I’m hoping after the holidays I’ll be back to my usual excited self for lifting.

4. You know how I was on this dip manicure vs shellac debate?! I posted about it here. Well, I went back to my regular manicurist and she told me “I believe nail salons are pushing dip because most charge $10 more per manicure. I think they’re both equally as good.” She also claims that dip is not less damaging. She always tells me that if it’s taken off properly (no peeling!) thats how you create less damage. I’m no expert on this so don’t quote me; I’m just passing along what Tracy told me. 

5. Organization has been my thing lately. Every day or two, I take on a shelf or cabinet. I’ll take everything out. Toss what is junk. Then I organize it. Taking it little by little prevents it from feeling like an overwhelming task and you know that I actually enjoy organizing so it’s a fun little something to add to my to do list.
