burgers for me...burgers for you...burgers for everybody!

Sunday was the next to last day for me to cram for finals - last two tests for this semester are on Tuesday. I studied, Kris cooked and the four-legged crew waited somewhat patiently at the edge of the kitchen and at the grill. Kris and I love burgers as much as our fur-faced kids do.We had discussed various ways to play with the taste sensations we've tried out at restaurants in Houston and figured we could make a better burger. Of course she succeeded! I was informed they were ready to sample and left my studies promptly mid-afternoon. Kris had made min-burgers in four varieties for us to try: a blue-cheese burger made with my favorite stinky Maytag blue; a pizza burger stuffed with home-made pizza sauce and provolone cheese; a chipotle burger with some Kerrygold's Irish white chedder and a SoCo burger made with Southern Comfort ( like a Jack Daniels burger but better- you kick out the sweetness with Worcestershire, etc.). And of course, a cold brew to wash it all down. No booze for kids the though! Absolutely Fabulous! Don't know which one is my favorite but we'll just have to have a burger party soon and let others decide for themselves. Naturally, the hairy ones got to sample the leftovers. Wish ya'll been there! Have a great week!


  1. You're making us hungry!

    Now, a question ... did Bentley share? We see some yearning eyes peering up, hoping for a bite or two!

    (Good luck with the finals!)

  2. Answer for the Two Special Wires: That big mouth just looks like he's the only one getting any food. Bridgette eats hers a lot faster than him. The littlest boys, Walter and Jax go under the table to eat theirs! We definitely believe in sharing!

  3. Mom has had a blue-cheese burger before and she says they are to-die-for! We'll have one of those and a pizza burger, please!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  4. Oh yummy, those burgers looked delicious.

    We have yet to sample the delights of a burger...... sigh.
