I had foot surgery on 6/29 so getting around has been nearly impossible. That also means navigating the kitchen with safety. I say that but we had a cocktail party with some neighbors last tuesday and I brought dates stuffed with blue cheese and pecans
wrapped in bacon. They are to die for. I also brought lemon bars. It was too much hobbling around the kitchen with such a bum foot. I did manage to put together some hamburgers and roasted potatoes another night. I used a pound and half of ground beef,
about 3 ounces of crumbled blue cheese, 3Tbs Mustard, 3Tbs of ketchup, a few dashes of A1, 1/4 cup of bread crumbs (I use crushed up Rothbury Farms croutons) http://www.rothburyfarms.com/index.htm . I use these croutons for almost everything that needs to
be breaded as well. I made two patties, one large and one small for my husband and I use the rest of the mixture to make meatballs for a snack the next day. I dress the burgers with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce with lettuce and tomato instead of the traditional
ket, mus, and mayo.
