Homemade Chicken Burger II

After spending two weeks with my youngest Piggy Joshua , I realized that my boy has really grown into a young adult.  A matured young adult ! and it just tells me that I am going downhill and my time with my kids and hubby has shortened.  It reminded me that it is not how much time I still have with them but how much quality time I spend with them . Now that he has gone back to college and starting his 3rd year second semester....I feel an emptiness that I can't explained. I thought baking and cooking and watching HK dramas will fill up the emptiness but nope I still miss my still in UK and one in KL :(

Back to Joshua , he believes in living a healthy life style.  A balanced diet with lots of meat and veggies and fruits , cutting down on cakes.  And lots of gym exercise and swimming ( he is a water polo player for his college )  He gave me his diet plan and requested for more chicken breasts for his meals....I have to put on my thinking cap , how to cook those 3 kgs of chicken fillets I bought for him.  I made lots of chicken burger for him. Stored them up in the fridge so that he can eat through out the day. And of course ,  baking lots of burger buns for him too.

For a six footer , he thinks that he needs to build up his muscles so that he looks great. A six footer sexy hunk LOL! ..showing me his muscles all the time !  And here I was wondering why the sudden interest to build up muscles...I thought he is trying to get a great body to woo the pretty girls in class but nope he told me that building up a healthy and muscled physique is what he wanted all this while. Chatting with him makes me realised how little I know my boy.

Hmmm... so this Momsie has to be in league with him to help him build up his muscles , by including lots of chicken breasts in his meals and  it was great to listen to him everynight  on how those exercise he did can help to tone up his muscles. He showed me a picture of himself  before entering college and one recent picture - and two years of working out the muscles..truly there was a great difference to his physical look. He looks great...a healthy looking hunk :))))) I am happy when my children are healthy and have a healthy lifestyle.

I can't wait for my Piggy Joanna to be back home so that I can pump her up with good food. I heard she has lost a lot of heart aches to hear that :(

these are the chicken burgers I made for Joshua.........delicious

aka burger layering :p....
