Sorry about the later than usual posting, but we finally had some decent weather, and I spent my afternoon in the garden.
Three bags of manure, homemade compost, and a bag of sand were mixed into the planting beds. About a month to go before putting plants in, so everything should have plenty of time to decompose into nice fluffy soil.
Seedlings are up in the seed starting trays. The back one is jalapeno, and the front is ancho. Yes, I like my peppers HOT!

Yinz Want Fries With That An'at?
Results? I lost 30 pounds, my BP is normal, my triglycerite levels are nearly normal, my "bad" chlorestoral is in normal ranges, and my good chlorestoral is now measurable.
So what is this leading up to? As noted, I never ate red meat. Doc asked why, and I told him that I rarely had it, and I always felt like crap afterwards. He theorized that I felt bad because my body wasn't used to processing meat, and suggested that I reintroduce meat into my diet gradually. I did, and now I have no problem with ingesting cows.
On to the "meat" if you will, of the post. While blog surfing the otherday, I perused Anthony and Tunesmith's fine blog (check them out, you'll find them most fascinating and charming). Included was a recipe for hamburgers that incorporated a slice of bacon wrapped around the patty. Well now, I gotta try this! Heavily smoked and nitrated pig is a favorite!
A phand of grahnd rhand, one onion, two cloves of garlic, a tablespoon of Mrs. Dash's Salt-Free Steak Seasoning and a rasher of bacon later, the George Foreman Grill was ready, and the first two experimental patties were set to sizzle. They turned out well, with the weight of the grill lid helping to forge the bacon into the burger.
Ready to eat (no bun thanks to the diet)!!!
Best. Fucking. Hamburger. Ever. Next time, I'll have to try adding a slice of cheese, but eating burgers with a fork and knife, sans bun, is still weird.

That Sword is a little too big for you!

People come to this site for many reasons. I go to remind myself that what we're doing is in essence, acting. 145 years ago, men (and women) marched off into a real, shooting war, and hundreds of thousands of Americans on both sides paid with their lives.

This is just plain disgusting.
The ballpark sandwich will include a hamburger topped with sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon -- all between a "bun" made of a sliced Krispy Kreme Original Glazed donut.
If you can find a (loop)hole in your cardiologist's advice, calorie counters predict the monster will set you back about 1,000 calories and 45 grams of fat.
"Thanks" go to Llipgh for sending the link to this goo. Sheesh, what's next? Fries and coleslaw on a sandwich?
