Tonight, something I have been wanting for a week. Grilled Burgers with fresh tomato and onion...

A good burger is really hard to beat. I am a bit of purist, Ground round, a little seasoned salt.. that's it. I have tried all the others, add onion, soup mix, etc. When I am hungry for a grilled burger... just give me the meat and cook it on a HOT grill to sear the outside. It should be crisp on the outside and a little juicy on the inside. I do prefer it to be just a tad on the dry side for a burger.

we had planned to go to the beach today, but the traffic was ridiculous in the morning, and even worse tonight, so somehow i got talked into going to the mall to help shop for school stuff for my boy. i'll take a day off this week and we'll hit the beach one last time this summer.

after the mall, we went to the olive garden. (it was the only place around, and meltdowns were imminent. both dw and my boy)
the salad and breadsticks were good, and the service very good. but then dw had a mediocre-at-best chicken marsala, and if i had to give the chianti braised short ribs a grade, i'd say d plus. the sauce tasted like it was just squeezed out of a latex bladder right over the meat. it had a sort of plastic, preservative laden taste to it.
i shoulda ordered the steak. what can you do wrong to a hunk o' meat over a fire? if it is overcooked, you just have to wipe the spit off the secong one they bring you...

Thanks all
That teriyaki, honey and brown sugar glaze is really "da bomb".

Here's the wings bubblin' away before I took them out of the pan and set them directly on the grill. The corn was just resting at this point and the pressure cooker letting off a little steam.

BTW, your fridge pickles are almost gone. I'll bring back the quart jar when we're done so you can refill it.

Actually by the time they bobbed for pigs feet EVERYONE was pickled!!! The pigs feet he bought were fresh ones and he boiled them or something to make sure they were cooked. He put them in a pot to bob in. Gross....

I'll be making some more fridge pickles today, they'll be ready in a day or so. I just picked a ton of cukes and green peppers to make more. I'll let you know when they're ready.
