Earlier this morning, I received an email from Amazon.com. In it included their “personalized recommendations” based on my search history on the website. I am thinking they know me a bit too well.
A while ago, I was watching Rachael Ray‘s daytime show and saw she was devoting a week to burgers to promote her new book “The Book of Burger.” I decided right then that I wanted that book. Sometime after that, my friend Katie invited me to go up to NYC with her and her mom to go be in the audience of “The Talk,” where Rachael Ray was going to be a guest. We both hoped that we would get a copy of the book for being in the audience, but no, of course not. AND THEN, at our new local Wegmans store, she was going to be there signing her burger book, so I got tickets for Mr. Fox and I. However, if you’re native to the area, you’ll know that trying to get to King of Prussia from Northeast Philly during rush hour is a total nightmare. That being said, I never did get my burger book.
So thank you Amazon.com for reminding me that my efforts thus far have failed epically. I will get the book eventually, and when I do, I plan to make most of the recipes in it, because I am a big burger person. Like, I could eat them all the time, as long as they’re different. And I am always looking for new ways to make them. One recipe in the book caught my eye, the Chili Mac n Cheese Burger. Oh lord. Definitely not diet friendly, but it looks amazing. So I am going to eventually go on a quest for burger amazingness. Because I love ground beef on a bun. I may decide to be spiffy and branch out, but that’ll be a while. I won’t do turkey burgers, because the taste just doesn’t compare. I’ve heard black bean burgers are delicious with some avocado, but I don’t think I can do a straight black bean burger. I may have to mix some black beans with the ground beef.
