I'm sorry it's been so long since I've updated. I don't really have an excuse - things haven't been too busy, it's just been hard to find the time to sit down at the computer in the evenings. I spend most of my day in front of one at work so when I come home I want to read the newspaper or watch TV or just sit with SP and enjoy the quiet.
Thursday night we had burgers and fries for dinner. I was worried about how this meal would turn out since I cooked the burgers on the stovetop and the fries in the oven, but the whole meal was a success:
Just look at that juicy burger with all those gorgeous toppings:
I topped my burger with pepper Jack cheese, fried myself an egg and layered the burger with mayo, ketchup, sliced red onion, crispy bacon and some lettuce. For the burgers I grated some onion and garlic and mixed that into the meat with salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
The fries were the biggest surprise, though. I used the remainder of a package of frozen fries I found lurking in the freezer. I got some tips for cooking frozen fries from the girls on a cooking board I frequent. One gave me a recipe for tossing the fries with chopped garlic, parsley, salt, pepper and olive oil:
I cooked the fries on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes. They were still a bit soggy - next time I'm going to cook them on the pizza stone. That was another suggestion and I think it sounds like it'll work perfectly.
