    Short Rib Burgers

    The weather is getting warmer and that means grilling weather. Let’s be serious, I eat things from the grill all year long, but the summer is when it happens a lot more often. But since it is getting to be grill weather, I thought I’d share photos of when I made these short rib burgers last summer. The recipe is from The Kitchen and I used the exact recipe. From grinding my own meat with the short ribs and a food processor down to the DijOli sauce – I followed the recipe. So click on the link above for the exact recipe! The only thing I changed was grilling the burgers…

    Photo Challenge: Order

    Happy Friday! It’s the last Friday of the school year and I’m beyond ready for a break. I’m going to make this quick because I’m so exhausted from end-of-year work. Last night was graduation for the seniors which was bittersweet because I’ve known most of them since they were in 7th grade. So seeing as I have no energy to make this a lengthy post, let’s get right to it. Last week’s photo challenge was “Order“. As it’s grilling season (but is there really any time when it’s not grilling season?) I thought I’d use this photo from last summer for the challenge. When you’re grilling, especially for a large…
