Thai Chicken Burgers with Mango Sauce

I am so grateful that it is a little warmer this weekend. A few months back, I had re-planted succulents from my wedding bouquet and they were doing great, but I left them outside when an incredibly cold front came through 2 weeks ago. I realized my mistake while I was at work and came home that evening to find them wilted and turning brown near the roots. Though I tried to keep them warm and in sunny spots, they just keep looking worse and worse. I’m hoping some sunny skies today will help them get back on their feet – especially because I am so sentimental about them, being from my bouquet and all :)

These burgers are an easy weeknight meal. Ok, the only part that isn’t easy for me is grating the zucchini, but that’s because I sometimes get impatient with it for not grating quite as easily as cheese. But don’t worry – this dish still doesn’t require a lot of hands-on time!
