Burger OozageYesterday we invited some friends over for beer and hamburgers. I had built up the “I make great hamburgers” myth, so I was a little worried that I might not live up to the hype, but everyone left very pleased. And a little wowed, if I might say so. Good food and good people.
Cheeseburger and Onion

Now that’s a burger!

Burger Oozage

Obligatory oozage shot. Lightly toasted sesame seed bun and sauteed onions. Lettuce and tomato on some of them.

Marga made this fantastic dessert with flan, peaches, pineapple, ice cream, whipped cream, and caramel. Yummy!

Happy July 4th, everybody!!

    Are knives and forks used on Hamburgers there?

  • Good eye, Neil. These were big burgers, as you can see, and some of our guests did, in fact, use a knife and fork. Not very American, but we allowed it.

  • With all the stuff in the Spanish press about the release of the kidnapped Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt from captivity in Colombia, it struck me that there was an added twist to the idea of “Independence Day” this year. After all, here’s a woman celebrating her very own “independence day” this July 4 after being held by FARC guerrillas for six years…

  • I’m not much of a hamburger eater, but those desserts look unbelievably delicious.
