Happy Cheeseburger Day! This is from a food truck! Rounds Burgers. The bun was puffy & so fresh! Everything about it was magnificent!
Wood Ranch BBQ Cheeseburger! Super juicy & reeeeaaaaalllly good!
Marmalade Cafe - juicy. Average fries.
Oh yeah! You KNOW I now own the Cheeseburger T-tank!
Blue Man Burger @ Hollywood Bowl
If you must deviate from the Cheeseburger, I highly recommend this unusual restaurant in Los Feliz, CA. The Tam O’ Shanter. In fact it is the only place I will eat Prime Rib. Their cream corn is addictive and the whole experience is very entertaining! +++++ They have a Surf & Turf situation for 2 ($89) happening in September! I promise you next month will not end without me eating there! They are affiliated with Lawrys Steakhouse. It sounds familiar because you have their seasoning in your kitchen! :) Brig
P.S. After this meal you will be unable to move. Dessert, even though included, will not get finished. You will have to unbutton your pants, so ladies, where a stretchy skirt or loose dress. TRUST ME!
I think they should have made a tater tot burger…
This won’t be a future Cheeseburger date of mine.
Woman dislocates jaw trying to eat massive burger
A Liverpool, UK woman learned that eating a triple-patty burger comes with risk of injury when she dislocated her jaw at a local restaurant — but after leaving the hospital, she said she’d return for another taste of the burger. … Continue reading
I rounded up Indy, our dog and headed to Palm Springs. Idyllwild was our first stop. Cheeseburger date! Went to The Little Chef in the Woods. I saw their website first. Very fancy. First let me start by telling you how welcoming they were. They kept my water and a bowl for Indy, full. Extremely wonderful service, however, I was there for a great Cheeseburger. After 2 hours in the car, I was hungry. I got my usual- Cheeseburger- meat, american cheese & bacon.
When it arrived, the crinkle fries were a huge bonus, but my plate was sprinkled with parsley. Argh! & an orange slice? Odd. Unfortunately my burger was more like Cheeseburger jerky. It was tough and chewy. Fries were perfect, but I almost napped on my plate because they were playing this really super mellow fairy music, sorry I don’t know how else to call it. Lots of harps. This Cheeseburger was on the low end for me. I still ate it, but was bummed out. Until we went to Nomad Ventures, a hiking/outdoor sport store and they had shoes for Indy. The pavement in Palm Springs, even at night, was going to be too hot for his little feet. Here’s what happened when the shoes got put on in Nomad..
After about 5 minutes he was walking fine.
Then there were some crazy roads to get from Idyllwild to Palm Springs. 109 degrees greeted us when we arrived at The Saguaro at 4:30p.m. Hotel was really great and they allowed dogs for no extra charge!
Over the next day and a half we drove allover Palm Springs with a Mid-Century Modern map and captured the beautiful homes on film and by photograph.
Here’s the video for you to enjoy!
Left Palm Springs yesterday at 11:30a.m. still dreaming of making the perfect Cheeseburger a reality. Then it hit me- Dog Haus in Pasadena!
2 hours & 2 dinosaurs later(Cabezon), I was finally wrapping my mouth around a Juicy Lucy! It’s a hamburger patty with a pocket of American cheese in the center.
I’d like to rename it -Hot Gooey Louie after the explosion of cheese i experienced when I cut it in half! Insane.
The patty was held by 4 Hawaiian rolls cut in half. Okay- that’s a HUGE burger. I had tater tots with it and was finally satisfied! My Juicy Lucy had a lot of seasoning to offset the sweetness of the bun. Not only was the food excellent, but the entire restaurant is wildly delicious, including the staff! The menu offers of course, hot dogs & more 10 ways to Sunday, including old school bottled coca cola and I even saw Yoo-Hoo! Oh and don’t get me started about the Ms.PacMan classic arcade machine in the corner… Well, see for yourself! Dog Haus Menu. :) Brig
I’ve been away. Mentally. After 3 excruciating years of watching my mom’s health worsen, she passed away. Now that she is on the other side of the moon, my description of heaven, I am back. She is finally getting the peace she has deserved for a long time. It is a relief to know she is no longer suffering. Nothing prepared me for these past 3 years. It got too difficult to keep up with everyday life fun stuff. Fortunately with amazing friends around me, I was able to get by.
I’m so excited to get back to Attack of the Cheeseburger!
To celebrate, I’m making a Cheeseburger! I start by googling “Best burger recipe”. Being the plain jane I am when it comes to food, truth be told, most recipes were to festive for me, however I noticed on common thread- Adding ground short rib to your ground beef. Hmmm. Great idea!
I head to Albertson’s and buy 85% ground beef because it’s fatty and on sale. Fat=YUMMY! I also pick up short rib. Unfortunately after some reason I couldn’t understand, the meat counter couldn’t ground it for me. I decide I can just chop it finely and add it like I do with chocolate chips in cookie batter. (Mmmm chocolate chip cookies!)
I buy cheese from the deli counter. Mild Cheddar for Todd (my main squeeze. Okay, my only squeeze) & White American for myself. I’m really excited they had white! Some thick cut Farmers John bacon. Aw yeah! Things are gonna get crazy!
Fresh tomatoes & lettuce for my awesome neighbors, Sonny & Carol, who are brave enough to join us for my cooking. (I did cheat and borrowed BBQ beans & potato salad from the deli counter. Shhh.)
As you know from my previous 20 Cheeseburger Dates, I am very particular about my buns! All of them. I love pretzel buns, however recently my taste buds have been confused by Hawaiian Bread. At Target I find Hawaiian Bread Buns! Score. I also pick up sesame seed buns for Todd and possibly the guests. Gotta give them options. Which would you choose?
I’ve handed the grilling over to Todd. You know how men love to man the grill! I make threats if he screws up the meat. He politely ignores me.
Smoke is good, right!?
After the meal we both agreed they could have been cooked for less time. Regardless they were still freakin awesome and dangerously happened in my backyard! (Just minutes ago he grilled me another burger & it is perfection. I’m eating it now as I type. Don’t YOU judge ME…)
Carol enjoyed her Cheeseburger on a Hawaiian bun, too.
Especially with the red wine she brought.
I mean really, look at that plate!
I thoroughly enjoyed my Cheeseburger & corn. It all was fantastic, but then again my opinion is biased! I celebrated the summer heat with no make-up or hairstyle. Sometimes simple is just that. ;)
FOLLOW my blog, cuz next date, I’m getting my Cheeseburger off a truck! Best part is, I won’t know which one until I arrive at the location. ;) Brig
