Fire up the grill!

Buenos días a todos!

I love to wake up early on Saturday.  Yes, this 26-year old LOVES to wake up early on the weekend.  It is the perfect start to a productive weekend.  And, this is what happens to you when you fall asleep before 10:00.  Needless to say, I am almost always awake before 7 on Saturdays and Sundays. 

Last night after work I met Matt at the car shop. You have to get your car state-inspected every year in Texas and he was overdue.  If it doesn’t pass inspection, like because it is a POS, then you can’t drive it.  Simple….after this we went and picked up our lawn mower, weed wacker, and blower from this old man that services lawn equipment.  We jammed (not jellied, lol) all three pieces of lawn equipment in the red dragon’s trunk. Not cute! The rest of the drive home I was nervous to go over 5 mph or the trunk would slam down on the lawn mower.  Ahhhhh…..2nd reason we need a truck! You can also read the first truck rant here.

After we got home and unloaded the lawn crap stuff, we took off to Randall’s to purchase some items for dinner. 

It was a gorgeous Texas spring night (72 degrees), we sat out in our driveway and cracked peanuts and drank a beer, and we wanted to grill hamburgers.  Last weekend when we went to the farmer’s market, along with our sausage and vegetables, we bought some Texas Kobe beef. $8/lb.

 We bought swiss cheese, kayser rolls, mushrooms, asparagus, waffle fries, a HUGE bag of peanuts, and beer for my honey.  This dinner was going to be complete.

 Matt got out our food scale and made each burger 1/3 lb.  This was one of our wedding gifts that we use quite a lot. Guess which one is mine?

 While Matt manned our NEW grill (we totally splurged on a Weber last weekend and it rocks), I sautéed the mushrooms with fresh garlic.   Once the burgers are done, top the burgers with the sautéed ‘shrooms’ and swiss cheese and throw the buns on the grill for a sec to crisp up.

Since I was indulging with a bun, I just had a few waffle fries.  That is all I needed…. I ended up giving the last bite of my burger to Matt.  I was StUfT! Ugh….but it was soooooo good and the scale wasn’t too happy this morning. Yikes! I better get in a run this afternoon!

I enjoyed some homemade mayo/ketchup mixture…..It’s like that whopper sauce, y’all!

We don’t have any major plans for the rest of the weekend.  I have to bottle the kombucha, pick up milk from the farmer, and grocery shop before I leave for Dallas tomorrow with student council.  I will be away til’ Tuesday night, but I always have a good time at that state convention.  Have a good one!

Questions: Is it worth it to you to splurge on a new grill?

 Have you ever had Kobe beef?
