Burger Night!


Burger Night!, originally uploaded by Lisa Fagg.

Today was a tough day, one way and another. Necessitated a good old-fashioned, easy meal to finish it off. Even though we'd been out for burgers just the night before - as a prelude to a night at the theatre - I really craved A BURGER! This, after politely (I hope!!) bowing out of a meal out with friends. All i wanted was to get home, kick off my shoes, cook and sink my teeth into a home-made burger. Well, I had my wish:

We made a short stop on the way home to pick up some minced beef and some rolls. By the time we got home, of course the cats were starving (and so had to be 'seen to') I set to preparing the burgers and condiments (tomatoes, lettuce, red onion, mustard, ketchup, tomatoes, mayonnaise, pickles) and, when given the signal, some of the above went into the hot grill pan, to be sizzled to perfection, whilst the rest of the ingredients were arranged in such a way as the burgers could be quickly assembled.

In the end, it all went pretty well. All was devoured, with much enjoyment (at least as far as I could tell!)

Bon app├ętit!

Um, you DO plan to log that creation on your SparkPeople nutrition page, don't you?

Just sayin'

;-)

Yes, it was MUCH enjoyed! The taste was not so "technicolor" as the photo suggests: just a nice fresh burger, perfectly cooked, with all the trimmings.

Under 500 cal is surprising!

Still, I think I'd go for a whole-wheat low carb bun, and maybe half of one... ;-) (That's as much fat as I usually eat in a whole day.)

It *does* look yummy, especially with the condiments dripping down to the plate!
