Another Plain Holiday

Well, another holiday meal has come and gone and it was yet another plain one. I had a couple of bacon cheeseburgers. I don’t eat potato salad or pasta salad. I was hoping to make something more, but we were out by the pool and lost track of time and decided to just make something simple so we could enjoy our time.

It was just my wife and I and she loves the pool. Our dog, Mugsy, a Pitt Bull/Mastiff mix doesn’t care for it at all. We did mange to get her in a couple of times, but she is never happy about it. A long day out by the pool now has all of us a bit exhausted. We are just chilling inside now watching Transformers on TV. We love action flicks. In fact, our first date 15 years ago was watching Con Air and The Rock.

I think we are probably too tired to even bother with fireworks. We may just go relax in the pool and then slip into bed early. I have a feeling that all of us will sleep quite soundly tonight.


Bacon Makes It Better

I mentioned a couple of times how I like my burgers plain. I just got back from dinner out at a place called Legends and realized I don’t always order my burger plain with nothing but cheese. Sometimes I will get it with bacon.

I don’t know how I could have forgotten that “Bacon makes it better” is practically a motto in my family. Well, some of them would argue that it’s “Butter makes it better”. Either one will do in the right situation. For burgers, bacon makes them better.

Anyway, I stand corrected. I don’t always order a plain cheeseburger. I also like a plain bacon cheeseburger.

Memorial Day Burgers

I spent most of the long weekend fighting with our pool. It needed a new pump and one of the inlet valves. I got a bit of a sunburn and I was worn out by Monday so we took it a little easy.

We started the day with a great walk in the park with our dog Mugsy. She’s a Pitt Bull and doesn’t always get along with other dogs, but we actually managed to walk her with another Pitt named Frankie.

When it came time for dinner, I had just one thing in mind – a nice juicy cheeseburger! Naturally, I make mine with no seasoning or marinade. For my wife, I add a rub and garlic. I make a mean burger. We have them on wheat rolls with some American cheese. She makes some sautéed onions to go with hers. I want no part of any onion on mine. I eat a plain cheeseburger – sometimes I’ll add ketchup. It was a great way to end the holiday weekend.

So do you grill on Memorial Day or do you have some other special meal you break out for the occasion? Let me know.
