saturday was an AMAZING food day for me! i already told you guys about our spectacular lunch at the city coffeehouse & creperie, but i still owe you a recap of dinner from saturday night.
last time i was down in st. louis i brought a pound of local beef that my mom gave me. brad and i didin’t end up cooking with it last time, so we agreed that we’d use it this weekend! when i asked brad what he wanted to do with it, he suggested this….
i was less than excited about the idea of eating hamburger helper for dinner, but he did have several of them in his cupboard, and he’s moving soon, so i agreed. after a little more investigation, however, i discovered this:
expired almost 3 years ago! lol. silly brad. that prompted me to go through his cabinets and found all of this expired food!
i happily tossed all of that in the trash! 🙂
but on to our new dinner dilemma. we decided to make some burgers! brad chopped up onions!
(have you noticed he does a lot of the chopping when we cook together? he’s so good at it!) the puppy watched.
we mixed together the beef, chopped onions, dashes of salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic powder, as well as some shredded sharp cheddar cheese! then brad formed them into patties and we grilled them on the george forman.
capone helped some more.
after the burgers were done, i decided to eat them my favorite way….in salad form! 🙂 i loaded up my bowl with spinach, chopped tomatoes, more onions, a chopped up burger patty, guacamole, a bit of sour cream, and lots of salsa!
you might also see a little special ingredient in there too….
brad got a bag of the new flavor of sun chips! jalapeno jack! we added them for a little crunch! let me tell you, that was a good decision! spicy and crunch! mmm…. i also enjoyed a little vino with dinner.
plus two more glasses…. what? it was a saturday night! 😉 brad and i also took home a complementary cheesecake from dinner on friday night (we sat at our booth for about 10 minutes before our waiter came over so they gave us free cheesecake!), so we ate that for dessert!
it was ok, not great, so i only had a bite or two.
seriously though, guys. make that burger bowl! it was so so so SO good! i mmm’ed the whole way through it. i think i enjoyed it more than the crepes for lunch!
