Burger Night

by Meghann on July 12, 2011

It was a crazy afternoon.

I ended up spending a few hours at the office taking advantage of the ridiculously speedy WIFI and getting a good amount of work done. Working on vacation isn’t as easy (or fun) as I originally hoped it would be.

I eventually forced myself to call it quits on the laptop and headed back to the empty house. It felt good to kick back with some peanuts, a beer, and a good book.


One Day is really starting to pick up! I’m a third of the way through it and have a hard time putting it down. I love the concept of skimming through a person’s relationship by only focusing on a single day out of each year. Time flies and there’s no room for unnecessary narrative.


Burgers were on the menu for tonight.


Can you sense the dogs’ excitement?!?!


Call it cliche, but there’s something about a burger that just screams summer time vacation.


I piled my burger high with tomato, ketchup, mustard, and mixed greens.


All sandwiched betweened a fluffy onion roll.


Barked fries with ketchup on the side.


We discovered some new tonight – my little brother has a knack for making perfect uniform chocolate chip cookies, He needs to teach me his ways!


I had 1.5 and they were fabulous. πŸ™‚


It’s so peaceful here right now. I just want to snuggle in my bed and read. πŸ™‚

Good Night!

Thanks for the reminder on that book – heard about it, but forgot about it – downloading now to my kindle! Love the pictures of the pups waiting for their burgers πŸ˜‰

I hate working on vacation. It always seems like a good idea and then you do it and realize how much it sucks. πŸ™ At least you got a lot done and had that amazing dinner to enjoy!!

Those cookies look AWESOME!

If you hadn’t said your brother made those cookies I totally would’ve guessed they were store bought. They look too perfectly round to be homemade!

I’m so glad that One Day gets better! I purchased it for my nook a few weeks ago and found it kinda slow at first and stopped reading it. Great looking dinner!

At least you get to have your dinners cooked for you while on vacation πŸ™‚ That’s definitely a bonus, although I would imagine working on vacation would be no fun – just like working on the weekends!
Now I want some chocolate chip cookies…

You are SO right about the burger – I can’t think about anything more summery!

I love onion rolls-as a vegetarian I use them for grilled cheese or veggie paninis not burgers though:) By the way I loved your faux sausage gravy recipe from Kelly’s blog! You have me really interested in One Day now, I might have to pick it up!

You and all your delicious stories from paradise basically keep me sane throughout the work day! I DO wonder how you manage to control yourself around chocolate chip cookies and burgers?! When my family gets together, all my food guidelines go out the window. You’re inspiring πŸ™‚

ps. I just got up to make some cookies for dessert – I have you to thank for that one

I completely agree on the burger thing although burgers also scream football season to me. Oh is there anything better than a burger accompanied by an FSU win? Funny enough burgers are on the menu for tonight

29 Christie July 13, 2011 at 9:36 am

That burger looked AMAZING! Well DONE πŸ™‚
