and so begins day 3 of 30 recipes and 30 ingredients with monica. teaching people to make more of their meals at home : one girl at a time!
it's 5:51 pm and i am about to go to bed. don't judge me. i have been up since 5:30 am and feel like i have been going non stop for at least a week, maybe a month! I LOST COUNT! but BOY am i tired. don't worry. this recipe is on time. and i am about to eat it before i go to sleep in a little while. NOM.
i'm trying to bring our bachelorette into the world of cooking slowly because she has been out of it for a while now. i don't want to overwhelm her, so we're easing on in with a recipe RachaelRay would be proud of : BURGERS!!!
but this ain't no ordinary burger. THIS burger is fancy without much work and it tastes like summer. yeah i know, some of you are getting snowed on. but i live in texas for at least another two months and i am going to make all i can out of that fact before i go back to the cold, dreary north. it has merits but i have grown to love texas so. and this week, it has already reached above 90! bring on the summer!
