Yesterday was Flag Day and I decided in keeping with the theme of the day, I would make an all American Dinner!
I went to our local butcher and picked up some freshly ground beef and American cheese from their deli. On to the grocery store for ciabiatta rolls and peanut oil.
I keep my burgers pretty simple, I usually add Montreal Steak Seasoning to the beef and form them into patties. My husband is a basic burger guy, his idea of a fancy burger is swiss cheese and bacon. I peeled and cut the potatoes into sticks and pulled out the deep fryer. We don’t usually fry anything in this house but every once in a while, you just need homemade french fries!
To at least make an attempt to be healthy, I did use the salad greens and one of the heads of lettuce that I picked up from my CSA to make a salad. My husband just took the greens and added them to his burger, hey, at least he ate them….
Since the buns were so big, my honey decided to have one and a half burgers per bun, in order to get the right ratio of meat to bread I guess.
The weather was spectacular yesterday so we had our meal outside on the deck. All in all, it was a nice meal, eaten on a beautiful day with the one I love, can’t ask for a better ending to a day.
