With the real deal back in Jersey, #farm-mom, preparation of dinner fell right on my shoulders, if I wanted to eat.
After spending around 10 hours in the woods cutting and hauling firewood, I could have eaten a horse.
Good thing I planned for this moment in advance.
Knowing that the main cook would be out of town for several days, I made an early visit to the freezer to grab old reliable, a couple lbs of burger meat.
Talk about a whopper, this baby had to come in at about a pound and a quarter.
Swiss cheese on one half, and White American cheese on the other half.
About 15 minutes on the grill and it was time to eat.
Now, I needed more than a burger, but wanted to keep it simple.
No sweat, a couple of Beef Steak Tomatoes from the garden, rounded out the meal.
Slice and dice the tomatoes ✔
Get burger off of the grill ✔
Cut the pickle in half ✔
Break out the condiments, ketchup and @dandays favorite, mayonnaise ✔
and get all setup in front of the tube in 20 minutes, how can you beat that.
Oh, and the Yankee game already recording, and just waiting to be watched.
I don't know how many Yankee fans there are out there, but what a great season they are having.
Lead the majors in home-runs, breaking the all time home-run record, with around 18 games still to play.
Will win the American League East Division
Presently have the best record in all of baseball, giving them home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Yankees had the second longest streak without being shutout, behind a 308-game stretch by the Babe Ruth-led Yankees from 1931-33. Their streak ended after 220 games on Labor Day.
Despite having suffered more injuries than any other club, they just continue to win.
They have come up with a saying, 'Next man up."
I wonder if I have enough burger meat for tomorrow's dinner?
