Of Homemade Burgers and Personal Projects

I have not blogged for a while so sorry for that especially when I got giddy to learn that there are readers from as far as Ireland who reads my personal and sometimes random musings. I have been busy with my new role at work – I am totally happy with it but is still adjusting. But, finally my random post on some baby personal projects is here. 

So we spent a chill Saturday night at home. My husband promised to make some “special” burgers for dinner. We have been dining out for most part of our week for several months now. And just this year, I committed to cut down again on restaurant food and incidentally expenses too (not necessarily food related) haha! So more relaxed nights at home will help me do that. Disclaimer: I am still taking baby steps so operative word is cut down 😆. The husband is also riding on this journey. So going back – the promised burger was better than the American diners’ burgers in town! Lol. I thought of quickly sharing the diy burger in this post squeezed in my random thoughts. Wow, me posting a recipe post?! Haha! Nah, not really. I do not know how to cook (frying not included haha). So, for people close to me I bet they will have some bubble thoughts in there heads saying – really?! sharing a post on a homemade burger? Haha!  

Well, I am not going to really share the recipe of the burger patties itself since according to my husband it is made from secret recipes haha. You know, just in case he revives his food business. Wink,wink. But, just the steps on how he prepared it:

He just fried the homemade patties (yay!less processed);

Put on sliced cheese (can be feta for ahealthier choice)on top of the patties when the patties are almost cooked;

For the preparation of the buns – spread some cheese and toasted it while waiting for the patties to be cooked.

Then, before closing the bun with patties to make it a sandwich, put in some lettuce, condiments like mayo, ketchuo ( if you wish like organic, less sugar ketchup) and can add some tomatoes too.

His effort to make the burger so flavorful without buying the frozen patties in supermarkets and make it similar to our favorite burger joints made my heart melt. Aww. Haha. It was a simple dinner at home but it reminded me of the baby steps I am trying to do for my lil personal projects on cutting down expenses like dining out and on choosing fresher food. I still eat some instantly prepped meals when I am out but I am consciously cutting it for now. 

The reason I am sharing this random thought is also for accountability on my lil personal commitments/projects/goals. I What other personal projects do you have? But, the personal projects financial and also physical health, I shared earlier will do for now. It’s already September and I want to do something about it.

    I think it is wise to cut down on restaurant food. Indulging once in a while is fine but too many outings may show on health. And what you prepared is simple and most healthy and I am sure tasty too. 🙂 Great mouth watering pictures. 🙂

    We also make our own burgers sometimes. It is healthier and yummier too! Good that your husband made these for you. Looks good! Reminds me of the burger patties with mushroom sauce my mother made for dinner.

    Burger recipes seem to be a hush hush thing! My son makes the most excellent burgers! He has a secret process and they’re juicy and very tasty. Better than some of the ones I’ve tried in restaurants!

    It is always a wise idea to cook restaurant style food at home.That is always a healthy way as we can avoid some unhealthy ingredients.This burger sounds really delicious with your husband’s addition of secret recipes 🙂 I usually make burger at home,but I always buy the bun.So my part is only to fill the bun with patties and lettuce,tomato etc… 🙂
