Today is Canada Day which is our equivalent to America's 4th of July. I took a ride around today just to see what was happening and this is what I saw. NOTHING!!!! Everything was closed. There were people all over the place with no where to go just wandering about aimlessly. People were washing their vehicles, mowing there yards, walking their dogs and a few of us were grilling. It was a little after lunch and I was getting a might hungry and there were some restaurants open but I couldn't think of any place I wanted to go. After making a wide circle about the area I headed home in a direction which I knew the path would lead me by the little store up the street. I think the only days that place is closed are Thanksgiving and Christmas and sure enough as I approached I noticed a parking lot full of vehicles. I pulled in went for supplies for the long weekend. Corn on the cob was my first grab and then some potatoes to bake and some nice tomatoes for burgers. Grabbed a loaf of bread on my way to the meat counter where I found some beautiful steaks [this place has great meats] and a pound of hamburger. Next I grabbed a dozen eggs just in case I decided to make my own skillet or a breakfast of some kind. That should hold me with what else I had around the house.
Got home and fired up the grill so it would get good and hot and went inside to put things away and make up some burgers. Now with a pound of meat that should have made quite a few burgers but with me that's exactly what it made...a few burgers. Two burgers to be exact weighing in at a mere 1/2lb each. Well it was a little under a pound of meat but not by much. I dumped about a half ton of Famous Dave's BarBeQue Sauce on the meat along with a ton of Franks Red Hot Hot Sauce and mixed it all together. Slapped those puppies on the grill and when they were done I put a few slices of cheese on top and there they were. Two of the finest burgers ever. I put one on bread with freshly sliced tomato, mayonaise and fresh ground pepper. With potato salad and a few slices of tomato on the side and a nice cold drink, I was ready to munch for lunch. Man was it ever good. I was surprised it didn't have more of a bite to it with all the hot sauce but it was good. Guess I should have used Tabasco which I grew up on. Next time maybe because sometimes you just never know how I'm going to fix my burgers but they are always good. Check this lunch out.
