Chicken Burgers

The Seamaster and Seamaiden have been running around this week doing our finest impressions of decapitated chickens. That inevitably means that dinners have to be yummy but painless to prepare. These chicken burgers fit the "yummy but painless" bill so nicely, you will begin to suspect that you have been secretly injected with morphine!

1 lb. boneless chicken breasts
1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp. capers
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until the chicken is ground.
Make 4 patties and grill on each side until done.
Serve on whole wheat rolls with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise with olive oil and Dijon mustard.

Princess for a Day at Tea by Two

The Seamaiden recently enjoyed a grand afternoon of high tea and hot gossip (well, just catching up anyway) at Tea by Two with one of my best gal pals. Which tea did I imbibe? Princess Catherine, of course! Now I know this tea is not really named after me. I am certainly not a princess. I'm a divine, bodacious Seamaiden!

Stop by Tea by Two and take home a little 2 ounce bag of relaxation today. The tea menu is as vast as it is flavorful and tantalizing!
Tea by Two is located at 814 S. Main Street in Bel Air, Maryland.

A Seamaiden's Slippers

Cinderella has nothing on the seamaiden who wears these slippers to the ball! I created these little charmers out of a pair of plain pumps and an assortment of seashells and glass pebbles. No fairy godmother required. Be on the lookout for more "shoeshell" art from the Seamaiden.
