Meatless Monday? Not in this house. Well, not this Monday anyway.
Something about the middle of winter that simply makes one crave meat from the grill and so it begins...
Pickle slices, tomatoes and fresh lettuce are tonight's available toppings.
Corn on the cob in January? Well, yes. it was available in the produce section of the grocery store so I decided to simply not ask too many questions. It turned out to be quite sweet and firm enough without being tough.
French fries? Yes. When serving traditional grilled burgers whether middle of the winter or not, fries are in order. While they could have been (and have been in the past) crisped in the oven, these were prepared the old fashioned way - on the stove in oil then drained on a paper towel.
We are as individual in our taste in burgers as anything else in life. One medium/rare, one medium and I am the surprise. I like my steak more on the rare side, but my hamburgers should be cooked more well. Tough to please everyone.
Mondays can be tough and this one was no exception. A dozen people were let go from my day job today. I am sure some will be on to bigger and better things, but it's still a difficult time. The Mr. has a little added pressure at work this week with a big visit/inspection. Our older son went to his second day of his internship and shared a brief overview of his experience. Now, it is time to relax and appreciate that we can come home to each other and share our stories - leaving us feeling Fed Well.
