a pictureless post.

Well folks, I'm afraid I have failed you, I don't have a picture to post of the burger Paul and I created on Sunday evening. Please accept my deepest apologies, but this will give you a chance to use your creative enlarged imaginations! So sometime over the weekend, Paul and I were talking about Sunday dinner, told him I had some hamburger meat. I was going to make my usual Emeril's Essence burger, but Paul was feeling adventurous and I followed suit. One of the few chain hamburger joints we are fans of is Red Robin, now pick your jaw up and slap your mouth back together. I know, I know, it surely isn't Father's Office but they do a burger justice for a chain restaurant. Plus we can't get over the fact that they make their own ranch dressing which is divine for dipping their steak fries. Anyway, I digress. It was the inspiration of Red Robin's burger with pineapple that we started tossing around the idea of doing a burger with pineapple, bbq sauce and I threw in my two cents with homemade lime mayonnaise. We debated as to whether to add pineapple into the burger or use it as a topping, I won that one. I added crushed pineapple into the meat along with finely chopping red onion, grated garlic, salt and freshly ground pepper. For toppings, we added tomato, romaine lettuce, pepperjack cheese, Sweet Ray's bbq sauce and the homemade lime mayonnaise I whipped up. It was delish! however, we did agree that next time we will use the pinepple as a topping/condiment. I'm afraid even after draining the crush pineapple, it left the meat rather juicy. Overall, it was a success. Our bellies were satisfied and so were our creative culinary minds! Cheers.
