|All those amazing things that highlighted our year...|
And so to prep, I bought ground beef, buns, and potatoes. Normal ingredients almost every household has. And it being a day to celebrate family, faith, and life, I made sure to make the biggest, juiciest, plumpest burgers our grill has ever seen: Four 1 pounders!
Now I know what you are thinking. Burgers and Fries for Christmas?! Yes! Why not? Beer in hand, grill lit up, my husband and I embraced the crisp air, sunny day, our frozen toes (ok so I was wearing flip flops!), and the smokey air.
Now, because I am a vegetarian, I also assure to use the right side of the grill for some fabulous meat free goods. And you know what? Every once and I while even I do not feel like making everything from scratch, and so for this meal, I used meatless burgers and chicken from the grocery store. And I don't feel guilty at all!
And so we grilled. Neighbors peeking out their wintery windows, our cats roaming the yard in christmas sweaters... it was perfect! We even caught a glimpse of ourselves in the grill (new Xmas photo?)
|Can you find us?|
For me, I have provolone and fresh tomatoes with salt and pepper, arugula, and a spiced wine. A fabulous end of a hard working year. All that's left is to start planning all the traditional and superstitious foods for the new years (another blog post to come soon!).
And so we ate. Thankful for all our friends, Bargain Bites supporters, our family, and our health. Not to mention the amount of juice spilling from my husbands giant sized sandwich!
I hope no matter what you do or do not celebrate, that December has been good to you and your loved ones! Thats for all your support with Bargain Bites. I look forward to more posts, stories, and amazing foods to come!
