National Burger Day is Coming

Mark your calendars for Thursday August 24th -- just a few days hence -- for National Burger Day!

The first burger-like creations date back to the 1st Century AD in Rome. I won't bore you with the details; you can read about them here if you're so inclined.

Let's talk about how we like our burgers prepared...

I personally like my patty well done, and I like lettuce, pickles, and ketchup on them. Oh and thinly sliced red onions on occasion.

There's a local burger chain where you can get couple of burgers with some not-the-usual toppings. My choice from Burger Street is the Olive Burger topped olives. They also offer a Chili Cheeseburger topped not only with chili, but also with Fritos--which should make that a Frito Pie Burger in my opinion. :0)

Most of the time, I eat burgers without buns because, most of the time, we make burgers at home rather than get them from fast food or order them at restaurants, and I occasionally like to douse my patty with a serving of Bush's Baked Beans and a dash of A-1 Sauce.

Now I do gotta say my favorite buns are Mrs Baird's large seeded buns, although i don't splurge on them very often. But maybe I should do more often because life is short.

Share your favorite burger place or your favorite way of assembling your burger in the comments if you like.

Oh--I happen to have burgers in my freezer...I guess I know when we're having them!!

Have a great week.
