I received some of the best ground beef that I’ve ever had from a friend a couple months ago. It is just as good as my Montana beef. Which I never would have conceived possible.
I had just made some quinoa muffins , and had some leftover quinoa and veggies.
And this was one of those recipes that you throw in a little of this, and a sprinkle of that…and it was absolutely deLIGHTful. Smokey, savory, moist, beefy, and barbecued. Enough said?
Hopefully I can remember all that was in it!
Fire up the bar-bay!
I made some whole wheat naan (maybe I’ll blog it later) for buns. It, too, was perfect.
The bailey’s version of a whopper. (Neither of us have actually ever had one!!)
Cheese makes everything better. And this is extra sharp.
Add some greens, and you’ve got yourself a challenge-worthy dinner!
