The weather has been so nice! We cleaned today and had the door open for a while (it is nice, but Drew’s door doesn’t have a screen, so we don’t keep it open too long to avoid mosquitoes creeping in). In honor of the spring/summery weather, we decided to have a backyard barbecue style dinner, with a little bit of a twist. 🙂 (I love twists!)

Who likes bland burgers? Make your burgers healthier and tastier by adding in a little salt, pepper, fresh onion, garlic, carrots, and celery! 🙂

Put your hamburger right in and mix it all up.

Form into patties.

We grilled ours on our George Foreman grill. It allows the fat to run out & makes it a little healthier. 🙂

I usually eat my burgers without a bun, to take off the added carbs, but Drew, of course, wanted buns, so I reluctantly agreed. We took a nice little walk to Robert’s Fresh Market that is just a few blocks away. I picked out fresh baked Ciabatta buns. Much, much tastier than gross-stuffed-full-of-chemicals-and-preservatives-typical buns. (or “meat bread” as Kelsey used to say when she was little)

Paired with some steamed broccoli and au gratin cheesy potatoes, we had a nice little taste of summer for dinner. 🙂
