FINALLY – a hamburger worth savoring!!
We met our friends Michelle and Ben for dinner tonight at a new burger place I’ve been wanting to try: The Counter. It’s one of those build-your-own-style places with toppings like pineapple, fried egg and 12 kinds of cheese. I’ve been craving a good burger (may I take your orrrrder!?) all summer and none of the ones I’ve had have really been perfect, so tonight I decided to forego the “burger salad” option and got a good old fashioned.
Perrrrrrrfect!! Topped with grilled pineapple, blue cheese, pickles and cooked RAREThat’s apricot sauce on the side (I had a few dips.) I ate 3/4 of my burger and gave the rest to the husband.
I ordered a side salad, but it was totally meh. I still ate it for green crunch.
We also had multiple baskets of fried things on the table, including fabulous sweet potato fries!! I LOVE them and had about a cup’s worth tonight. Worth it, for sure. Didn’t touch those onion rings!
And fried pickles! I had 2 of those too – with apricot sauce.
And a few sips of the husband’s beer –
After we got home the husband and I walked off our burger guts around our 30 minute neighborhood loop. I wait all winter to be able to take evening summer walks 🙂
Working Backwards –
So moving back in time to this afternoon, I did need a snack much earlier than usual – around 3:00. So I had a bowl of Fage, strawberries (4 on the bottom), about 1/3 cup cereal, a tsp of raspberry jam and a new product I received to try out – dried peaches, which I used as dippers. They are by Brothers-All-Natural and are simply dried peach slices. There was nothing added and the whole bag is only about 35 calories. Sweet!
I ate a handful of trail mix around 5 since I was getting hungry and didn’t want to go to dinner starving. Worked like a charm, as always.
