how about some eats!? well, it's just about grilling season around here so i am making the best of the ultra beautiful weather and cracking our little grill open. we get packages of frozen ground sirloin burgers from costco, and you just throw one on the grill (or skillet or oven) to cook frozen. they're inexpensive for a big ole bag, delicious, and convenient. i had one grilled with sharp cheddar for dinner the other night with frozen sweet potato waffle fries, spicy mayo (just mayo mixed with srirach and salt) and ketchup. hit.the.spot.
i love grilled asparagus! the dill sauce was a cinch to make. i just combined two tablespoons mayo, with one tablespoon fresh chopped dill, a quarter teaspoon Lawry's seasoned salt, and about two teaspoons apple cider vinegar. it was delicious. i imagine using yogurt instead of mayo would be great too! i didn't have any plain yogurt, or i think i would've given it a try that way.
i also had this beauty recently:
y'all remember how i sold my olga mixer? well, her replacement came today. she's gorgeous!
this is a kitchenaid professional series 600 mixer, in tangerine. and it is 28 pounds and 6 quarts of lovely! i had thought about calling her Olga the Second, but my sweet husband and mother-in-law think she needs her own identity. and i think they are right! the other day, skyler said her name needed more syllables, because she is so much larger and more powerful than olga. my mother in law suggested Olive or Olivia to keep with the O-theme and pay homage to olga. i love the ideas! i think Olive is the one! what do you think?
i came across a delicious looking gluten free bread recipe with browsing just today, and i think that will be my first big project in Olive. check out this recipe, with those bread calisthenics. i have never seen more beautiful or flexible gluten free bread. find the recipe that i will be trying in the next couple of days at One Good Thing by Jillee.
