Feelin' oh so bleu ...

***
AND HERE IT IS AS I PROMISED


I did a little post on the All-American cheeseburger yesterday, and I promised to put up a pic (if I fixed myself one) of one of my specialties, my bacon-bleu cheese burger. I hadn't had one in a while but, thanks to miss_kat_1968, I went out and invested a small fortune to get the ingredients. Like I said yesterday, I'd do anything for my friends.

Here it is (vegetarians beware):

ED'S BACON-BLEU CHEESE BURGER

Feelin' Bleu


Even though I didn't have any guests, I broke out the good good china. I think it warranted that. Just in case you're interested, it's made of: a toasted sesame bun, mayonnaise, mustard, 3 bacon slices, 3 dill pickle slices, mild banana peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, hamburger patty, ketchup, and crumbled bleu cheese.

I sprinkled a little more bleu cheese on the plate to nibble on as well. The only bad thing was that I had no one here to share it with. Too bad! If and when people sit down at my table, I have to say I treat them very well. C'est la vie.

Eileen, I know for sure you'd be here if you could. Wish I could zap one down to Florida right now. Maybe Mike can fire up the grill real soon.

Everyone else ... I'm still here.

You were a girl of many charms - Oh, how I loved you in my arms
I never thought that you would ever go - 'cause I loved you so

Oh, uh, Susie darlin'
I thought you knew
You were all the world to me
All my dreams come true


Have a nice evening, everyone! :)

Sounds GREAT save the 3 dill pickle slices... Can't do pickles.

We are being stuffed by well wishers bringing us food... not that we are in need... but with new child and E getting laid off... ya don't turn down free food... OK you never turn down the kindness of others anyway...

Woo Hoo...

some of them are rather good cooks...

Sounds like it put you in a very good mood. That was very nice of your friends to do that. I hope it's not the last time. Maybe one day you'll be able to return the favor too.

This was the returned favor I think ... but I don't keep track of these things.

I always tell folk that one doesn't do things for the return; rather I do what I can because it is just what I do.

Believe me - it alllll comes around.

Getting some relaxation now I hope

What's the next project

Next project? Well, I've been mostly pacing myself lately since I'm still not well and have been having (I guess) allergic reactions from chopping back on my hedges, cutting grass, weed-eating, and trying to get rid of debris, cleaning up stuff, just trying to make things more presentable. I'm really just tired mentally and physically.

I have to do the fascia, soffits, gutters, and reinforce the rafters in my attic first, but I'm hoping for some less intense heat.

Man - sorry

My allergies are under control at the moment, but I know that pain...

We're thinking about you...

Cheers

It was ... very. Think I'll do another Friday with fries on the side.

I might have one for lunch today.

I'm thinking of putting a little B-B-Q sauce on it this time. I've never tried it that way. It might be too much so I'll only do half of it just in case.

Let us know how it turns out.

Hey hon, it looks splendid! I'm here, too; but only for a bit. I actually got back to work today, which was good. It is also the 10th anniversary of Ed's father's death. I'll post more soon.

Take care.

Re: =)
It's fun to fix something for someone that looks nice as well as tastes nice. I got in the habit of doing that for my nieces and nephews, although most of the time their faces were glued to the TV and they didn't notice. I still think it's nice to take the extra time to do it. Made any more cakes lately?

Nah =)
But maybe he'll make me a cake for my birthday?

Re: Nah =)
Would that be shocking? *LOL*

I know he can barbecue. Can he bake too? Very tedious and time consuming.

Yep =)
He cooked for 9 years... it got him through Engineering school. He's quite the role model in the kitchen. =)

that is one good looking burger! :) Wish I had been there. Maybe I can get Mike to make me one. I'm sure Hanna has been missing them. LOL

Thanks E. Of course I'd really have loaded it up if it was for you. But you don't like tomatoes? You must have been a McDonalds baby.

Speaking of, I'm guessing Hanna's first taste of "real" food will be cheesy macaroni with applesauce. I'm sure you'll let us know. :D
