4 Day Burgers!

I'm not recommending that when you decide to make any type of hamburger, that you plan on it taking FOUR days - and they still aren't done...  I took meat out of the freezer, with good intentions, but alas, I had other foods thawed from the freezer that needed to be dealt with, and sadly, the burgers have been pushed to the "end" of the cooking food chain.  Perhaps tomorrow...?

I've only once in my life eaten "White Castle Burgers" at an actual fast food outlet, but I've bought them out of the freezer at the grocery.  Well, sorry, "White Castle," but I happened to stumble across a recipe for making them at home.  THIS is what I've been meaning to use that meat for, all of these days! 

I can only admit that these "sliders" are just a little slice of heaven, and the first time I made them Jason walked in the front door and proclaimed " I KNOW that smell!"  Not only do they work as a dinner meal (under the right conditions,) but they make a wonderful snack (2 at a time) when the mood hits.  My issue to date is, that if I make 12-15, they're gone in tow sittings! 

I think that I may be able to serve the lasagne one more time before freezing the l/o's, and tonight we ate off the pork for  a 3rd time, but what's left must meet "mr. freezer" tomorrow!  The one remaining chicken (turkey!) enchilada must either be a small lunch for me, or go along side the pork...  I am in hopes that the "burgers" might last well enough that I may be able to freeze a few for those late night "munchie attacks." 

As of this moment, I'm in HOPES that I can put up a couple holiday decorations, and bake a few things for friends and neighbors...  Things look bleak, but mostly because I'm feeling rather overwhelmed with the tasks at hand...  Perhaps, if I can get the house "in order," I might have more time/energy than I'm expecting.  I truly would like to put lights out on the front of the house and yard...  Skip the indoor tree(s) perhaps, or I might just surprise myself!  "Fa la la la la...."  Worst case, there's always "mail order" for gifts!  Now, where did I put my left over cards from last year and before?  Maybe I can send a few out..?

Happy holiday spirit, be healthy, be crazy!  (a little bit of each goes a long way this time of year!)

SCC: I also have eaten at White Castle just one time. I was a teenager on a trip to Ohio. That visit was over 30 years ago, so the memories are pretty hazy. Glad to hear you are enjoying your personal version of the tiny sandwich.

There was an old joke told in Germany when I lived there. It went like this: Before a meal the French say, "Bon appetit!", the Germans say, "Guten Appetit!", and the British say, "I'm sorry!" Those sliders sound great! is the recipe on your home page?

I have never eaten at White Castle but I do understand getting something out of the freezer to make a certain item only not to feel up to it later. This year I did manage to get the tree up in a timely fashion but not all the decorations are done. I seem to find other distractions to slow me done. And I am not getting the foodie gifts done on time either. May we all get a little spring into our steps and finish our to do lists!

bikerfamily, seems that I "forgot" something this time around, though I am now using a nasal spray that makes everything taste crappy! Maybe that's the issue! Be well!

Judy, can't say more than the fact that I'm plodding along at a snails pace! Haven't been able to keep a thought in my head for 5 mins. for weeks - lol. I'll keep trying, if you will! At least Sis in TX agreed to not send gifts anymore, just cards, this time of year (and b'days!) Be well friend, and good luck!

doc, many a Brit has agreed that they over cook almost everything... well, that was my experience when I lived there! I'll post the burger recipe ASAP. Be well!

Cat, if you find some "spring," send some this way, please! Kitty #2 was sent on his "journey" to the beyond today... What, 3 weeks apart? Talk about being in a FUNK! Maybe now, though, I can concentrate and get some baking done, and put up some "holiday cheer" to lift the spirits a bit! I've already put up a few things here and there, but still don't know if I will bother with either of the 2 "large" trees... the 2-footer is back here on a table... At least it's some lights and sparkles! Be well, and let's all cheer up, at least a bit!

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
