Hey guys! Another snowy Monday on the homefront. It least nothing is sticking today since it’s actually semi tropical out there – 31 degrees – can you believe it! 8) Bring on those bikinis!
Bring on the bikinis x2 because I ran through an awesome treadmill sesh after work! I completed the 41 Minute Interval Workout, upped the speed a little by turning all the 6′s to 6.5′s and ended up at a little over 4.5 miles. I’ll tell you what – everyone else must have seen the bathing suit display at Target this weekend, because around 4:30, the gym got packed! Luckily, I had staked my claim on a treadmill because it was slim pickins’ after everything started to fill up!
Finally, bring on the bikinis x3, because Ben and I totally channeled summer with our dinner tonight. It was insane: BBQ Bacon Cheeseburgers!
I seriously can’t even type straight right now because these were so good… juicy, cheesy and so reminiscent of summer!!
To some lean, 90/10 ground beef we added:
- BBQ sauce
- minced red onion
- chopped bacon
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- dash of cumin
- dash of hotsauce
Cook the burgers on a flat top skillet (we would have used the grill if it wasn’t buried in 18 inches of snow!) melt a slice of gooey cheese down over top when they’re cooked through and top with rich and tangy BBQ sauce. We like our burgers medium-rare, so just a couple of minutes on each side did the trick!
Served with crunchy dill pickle slices for snackin’
And tender roasted asparagus.
We were seriously blown away by the flavors in this meal. Still MMMMM’ing!!!
Get those grills out and try this burger, people – you’ll be instantly transported to the long days and fun nights of sumah-sumah-summahtime!
I’ve got a very important agenda tonight… savoring a rich a creamy Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich, and watching The Bachelor. Does it get any better than this?! Clearly, not.
If you could grill up one thing right now, what would it be?
