What a gorgeous day this turned out to be! The sky is clear blue (oxymoron) and when standing in the sun, why, you’d think it must be April. Soon! ;)
Ooo, I have some exciting news! Remember that tofu press I showed you a couple days ago? The good news is that you can buy it online! :D The bad news is that it’s temporarily unavailable. :( I encourage you to bookmark the website though, and keep checking back, because it is totally a tofu-lovers must-have kitchen gadget!
In vacation recreation and dinner news – I once again channeled a meal Ben and I had on vacation in Denver and made Chili Verde Cheeseburgers tonight!
Oh. Yum! One of our favorite meals we had while in Denver earlier this winter (I’d call it the favorite, except for those pancakes at Snooze!) was eaten at Cherry Cricket in the Cherry Creek district of Denver. I had a life-changingly tender steak and Ben had the famous Cherry Cricket Burger drenched in their house Green Chili.
Well, after I made those BBQ Cheeseburgers a couple weeks ago, the first thing Ben said to me after we got done eating was, ‘these would be awesome underneath some of your Chili Verde!’ So, that’s exactly what I did tonight!
I whipped up a batch of Chili Verde, cooked up some burger patties, and smothered them in chili and cheese. OMG! Naughty good and totally reminiscent of the Cherry Cricket Burger Ben got! You’ve got to give this a whirl guys!!
I also made some freshly roasted asparagus for a little somethin’ somthin’ extra.
Misted with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with garlic salt and roasted for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
Garlicky, salty, perfection!
Yum, yum, yum. So content right now! Tonight’s dinner was a totally kicked up version of a regular chili cheeseburger, and took us right back on vacation, even if it was just a little while. ;)
I’m sooo excited for dessert tonight, which involves these two lovely ingredients. Oranges and Chocolate. Can I get another Amen?! I’ll share the deets in the a.m.! :D
Have a good night!
If you could be smothered in one thing, what would it be?
I say caramel. I love it!!!
