Well it was burgers and fries this evening. The son made this request and I was more than happy to oblige. In a little twist I did not add either bread crumbs or egg to my hamburger mix. I used to think these were essential to making a good burger but after reading some blogs about burgers I am going to meat, onions, mushrooms, and spices. And it paid off. The fries were the usual thick cut home fries with salt, pepper and basil. I have to go easier on the pepper as the kids did not show the usual interest in their potato friends.
Please note the lollipop in the son's mouth. I was talked into getting individualized treats when we went shopping on the weekend. The son chose lollipops and the daughter chose mini packs of mentos. I am doing very handsomely for myself. Don't tell them.
