Carnivorous Cravings...

I try to eat healthy most of the time, limiting my intake of red meats, and eating lots of soy products and vegetables, but dammit, sometimes you just want meat! I succumbed to my Cheeseburger in Paradise cravings and grilled us up a couple of burgers Saturday night. Not just any old burger, these were the mack daddy ones from our local butcher shop, Taylor's. They take lean ground beef, then wrap the outside in bacon, ala Filet Mignon style. These burgers were so huge that Suzy had to make a special trip to Publix to acquire big deli style buns for them to nestle in. Topped with REAL Pepper Jack cheese, and your typical burger toppings, ketchup, mustard, lettuce, onion, pickle and tomato, it was just what I needed! We bought these in anticipation of eating them after a hard bike ride Saturday, but the bike ride never materialized, so we forged ahead and ate the burgers anyway! Nothing burns up the calories and creates hunger like jockeying for position on the couch for a day of watching tv. Posted by Picasa
