It’s a lazy Friday night at home. The husband had his knee scoped yesterday from some leftover injury he had from breaking his leg in 2009. He was home all day recuperating. I went to work and had plans to come home, check on him, clean house and grill some burgers. Yes, it is only about 20* in Fargo and that is warm enough for me!
What I think makes a great burger: 1 lb. locally grown ground beef (lean), finely diced fresh onion, garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper and the great flavoring of Montreal Steak seasoning. <—- Makes a great burger.
I find it best to put everything on top of the sort of flattened meat. Then, fold it over and form into 4 patties. This allows the seasoning to mostly stay inside the burger (so it doesn’t burn on the grill) but still be distributed throughout.
I decided to saute the onions in the house on the stove top instead of on the grill. Remember, we have 10 lbs to use up!
I got some fresh tomatoes today at Hornbacher’s (our local grocery and my favorite store!) and they were excellent. We have had terrible luck getting decent tomatoes lately. The last ones I had were moldy in just a day or two.
We are about out of Miracle Whip – it was $4 for a largish jar. Umm, wow. I’ll wait. Also, who ate the last kosher dill pickle husband? Tragedy. My preferred toppings would include a pickle. This spicy mustard I picked up at Wal*Mart is the bomb though!
Messy? Yes. Tasty? Oh yes. Classy paper plate and wicker holder? Of course.
- Peanut Butter & Co CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER! I melted a bag of chocolate chips and added in a big spoonful each of the chocolate PB and regular PB for the frosting. The final product? Pretty dang good – you might have a contender against yours sister!
Have a great weekend everyone! I am looking forward to hopefully hitting the town tomorrow night. Tonight is a quiet night in with the husband, crazy cat, dog and a few brewskis.
