I am loving the lazy three day weekend before the school year kicks off on Tuesday morning. Looking forward to lazing around, napping, hitting a movie or two and eating some great food. Thinking about grilling steaks tonight and putting a roast in the crock pot with a pile of farmer’s market veggies tomorrow. Monday is still wide open for inspiration…will have to surf some of my fav blogs to see what looks good.
We grilled the best burgers this week…
- angus beef
- cheddar cheese
- farmer’s market tomato, lettuce and onion
- homemade pickles
- fresh buns from Von Hansen’s
- ketchup and mustard
I have also had burgers at two great “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” hot spots in St. Paul over the past couple of weeks…a basic cheeseburger in lieu of the Juicy Lucy at Shamrocks for a quick work-day lunch yesterday, just a few blocks from my office…(this could be a dangerous temptation.) The Shamrocks’ sister spot “The Nook” was actually the one featured on DDD, but they have the same great burgers! I also enjoyed a late afternoon date with my husband last week at The Blue Door Pub for their trademark “Juicy Blucy”…a half-pound of Angus beef stuffed with bleu cheese and finely chopped garlic. Bob had “The Luau”…a Blucy oozing with mozzarella cheese and Canadian bacon, topped off with two pineapple slices and a splash of sweet chili lime sauce.
Enjoy the three day weekend! What are you eating?
