first warm day = burgers on the grill

Last night when I hit our little grocery store after work, I remembered all of the ingredients that I had at home that were about to go bad...wild mushrooms, pita, cilantro, thyme, etc.

  • Guacamole and Pita Chips with Chili Powder
  • Burgers topped with smoked provolone, sauteed wild mushrooms and onions with thyme
  • Tossed Salad
To make the guacamole, just mash up two avocados, squeeze half a lime over top, mix in chopped cilantro and kosher salt, and top with chopped plum tomatoes (with the seeds removed) or whatever tomatoes you have on hand. I had grape tomatoes last night. For the pita chips, I brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt and chili powder. Simple but I was able to use up the cilantro and pita chips so they didn't end up in the trash (this is important because Windsor "sanitary engineers" are on strike!).
The sauteed onions and wild mushrooms, were cooked on medium-low in olive oil and sprinkled with kosher salt and fresh thyme.

Yummy burgers!

Enjoy the weekend! I'll be at school for most of it. :(
