Burgers and Anniversaries

In my last blog post, I mentioned that I’d finally do my foodie post. Well this isn’t that post yet, but this one is a sort of random weekend post that has a bit of food involved so I’m halfway there ;-) I haven’t done one of these weekend roundup random posts in a long while and it’s fun to do it again to give you an idea of what my weekend was like. How was yours? :-)

So here goes...well on Saturday night we had cheeseburgers for dinner and they were really tasty. I hadn’t had a homemade burger in a while so this was a treat and I went a little crazy with loading things onto it. LOL.

Here’s exhibit A...




Brit Boy and I sort of did our own things with toppings. We both had cheese, tomatoes, onion and lettuce and that’s where the similarities ended. I don’t remember what else he put on his because I was mesmerized by mine. So as I said before, I got carried away, but I tell you, that’s my kind of carried away. LOL. I piled on a bit of mayonnaise, a bit of ketchup, and some sweet chili sauce. It was so messy, but SO doggone good! What a triumph and I was a happy woman after this ;-)

Sunday was a big day. It marked the day five years ago when I arrived here in England to live and I still can’t believe that it’s been that long. It’s truly like they say...time flies. It was very interesting that it fell on this day because yesterday was the day when we were supposed to fill out our Census form. It is supposed to be filled out on a certain day and it just happened to fall on my anniversary day. They do the Census count here on the years numbered ‘1’, such as 2001, 2011, 2021, etc. So I thought it was quite cool that the day coincided with my anniversary day and one more thing...we switched over to British Summer Time here on the same day! Whew, that’s a lot :-) Here in England, British Summer Time is when we move our clocks forward. So it was an interesting moment in time for me yesterday.

Now it’s onward into this new week...and I’ll be sharing more of my food triumphs and my not so triumphant food experiences. Also, I’ll share the countdown to our next adventure in London that’s coming up next month!

Until next time...

Dear friend, the time flies ... I understand that you was surprised over the years that already lives in another country. I long to you always be happy and healthy. That is able to leverage the best. Living close to those you love, your family, since this is the best.

As for the fast food ... I also love it.

What about in April ... I hope them never have an end as Charles and Diana, all years together have been important to be happy for a lifetime. And that serve as examples for the families.

Gosh I miss coming over here and reading about you and Brit boy. Why does it have to be so long between visits. lol
Yummy you girlfriend know how to dress up a burger. Now I am wanting a homemade one myself. They are so much better than the ones at the fast food places.
Glad you shared this with us even though now I am hungry.
Have a wonderful week
Love
Maggie

Nice to have found another American ex-pat blogger! (who loves burgers!) Finding really good hamburger here has been quite a challenge if you're used to good 'ole corn-fed beef from the Midwest. We've settled on low-fat Scottish burger meat from Sainsbury's - its really good. And loaded with British cheese on top and yep, their sweet chilli sauce (we spell 'chili') and you've got a winner! Thanks for sharing ...
