What’s Cookin’: Happy National Burger Month!
Being that it’s National Burger Month, I thought I’d start off my Monday with a burger. I do enjoy hanging out in the kitchen, I just wish there was more time – to brush up on food knowledge, learn some of those cool Top Chef techniques, try out more recipes. But – I do what I can. I was given the idea of taking more pictures of what I create in the kitchen, so today, I figured, while trying to multitask in the kitchen, I’d have my camera close by.
Today’s burger had a sauteed mushroom topping (with fresh thyme and parsley) and gorgonzola cheese. I also made a quinoa salad (with feta, cucumber, peppers, lemon juice & olive oil – I wanted to add cilantro, but didn’t have any) on a bed of baby springs. Pretty filling meal and I didn’t miss the french fries (because I had plenty of those this weekend). I only wish I would have taken the burger sooner off the grill since I like them about medium well and this one was closer to well done.
I realize I’m going to have to try a little harder with this food photography – but that’s what practice is for. Well, welcome to the month of May and go have some burgers!
