Friday night has officially become burger night in my house.
I used to try and throw together something nice. I’d roast a chicken, a pork loin or even get steaks. But I was always exhausted after work and inevitably grouchy after battling traffic, standing in line at the grocery store and dragging my bags in. I would stand in the kitchen and be unfairly pissed that I was in charge of dinner.
I say unfairly because I get cooked for all of the time. My man spoils me, and I admit it. But on most Friday nights, I’m just not feeling it. So I slowly started paring back the repertoire, and when I finally suggested burgers my stock went up fast–no complaints, no comments about dialing it in–no, “what that’s all?”
So burger Friday it is. But to keep it interesting, I’ve been switching it up. Last week was red onions and Gorgonzola. This week’s burger included Black Forest Bacon, caramelized onions and Robusto, all piled on my herb focaccia. With truffle ketchup, as always.
And if date night means burgers out, check out the Boston Burger Blog for the city’s best. I love reading Mr. Chudy’s posts–no one is more thorough.
