Meal No. 1663: Hamburger Supreme
Last Sunday was a return to gorgeous weather, and I tried to take full advantage of it with yard work. I got the second of two rhododendrons planted that I had just purchased, and I mulched most of the "grove" where the pear and cherry trees are. I planted the mums in the concrete planters that I received from my mother, and I filled in mums on either side of the steps coming up from the street. I only got panhandled six times while I was out front working.
It's just a small part of my yard to-do list during the few remaining pleasant days before winter overtakes us.
Alas, given that the days following that lovely weekend were full of work and travel, I had to do what I could and hope that I could get back to it when I returned from the road.
Last week started off with a day working at Hunter Elementary School in Guilford County. Since the plan that day was for everybody to bring lunch in, I decided to return all too soon to hamburger supreme. It is especially good left over, plus I had all that good homemade applesauce in the fridge that goes so well with it.
I felt like my hands were tied on this one. And what a delicious dinner it made on Sunday, and an even better lunch on Monday.
