Meat Fix

by Meghann on August 25, 2011

I discovered a new favorite snack: graham cracker with Naturally Nutty White Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter.

Oh, yes. This was good. Expect to see it again. And again. And again. πŸ˜‰

It was also the highlight of my afternoon, way ahead of errand running and number crunching. Number crunching bites.

Another highlight was finding time to head to The Fresh Market for a pound of their ground sirloin. Burgers were on the menu for tonight!

mmmm…. meat.

The burgers were simple, just a mix of meat, random seasonings from my cabinet (I went heavy on the garlic), soy sauce, and bread crumbs. The pound of meat made three burgers that were grilled on the George Foreman. I had mine on a bed of spinach with some ketchup and mustard.

Yum.

Nothing goes better with hamburgers than roasted potatoes and ketchup.

With a side of roasted asparagus for some green.

A complete meal.

I had the last peach cupcake for dessert.

I told you I wasn’t sharing with Derek. πŸ˜‰

We just popped in Limitless and are about to turn in for the night.

Good Night!

You are making me want to put everything sweet in my kitchen on top of graham crackers! should probably buy some then…

Do you think maybe this meat craving might have to do with an iron deficiency? Occasionally red meat cravings = your body’s way of trying to acquire iron from your diet.
…not that craving a burger isn’t a normal and natural thing though haha

Limitless is the worst movie I have seen in some time, in my opinion. I’ll be curious to see what you think!

Peanut butter and graham crackers are the best together! When I was a kid, my mom used to pack them for my lunch with cream cheese, too- the crackers would get all soft from sitting in my backpack all day, which for some reason made them taste even better πŸ™‚

Yes! Squishy graham crackers with peanut butter or frosting were my mom’s go-to “cookie” for us, when we wanted something sweet!

Mmm.. I love burgers! I cna’t wait to hear what you think of Limitless – it was the movie in my gym’s cinema room a few weeks back and I only got to see the first 20 minutes or so during my workout.

The peanut butter looks awesome! I just placed an order for some of that, and the pepita butter and trail mix. Thanks for the tip : )

14 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance August 25, 2011 at 11:17 pm

Why haven’t I thought of putting nut butter on graham crackers before!? I put it just about on everything else already…

18 Chuck August 26, 2011 at 2:33 am

Oh I loved Limitless – mostly because I had low expectations probably, but I thought it was really entertaining.

I’ve been wondering what to do with my leftover graham crackers – maybe I will eat them with peanut butter.

ha, I never share desserts with my bf. it works out because he’s not really into sweets, but it can also backfire too because I end up eating them all if they are in the house! Oreo cookies are officially banned from my house!

I love anything that’s “heavy on the garlic.” It’s a staple ingredient in my house!
