Had I been thinking ahead I would have taken pictures of dinner this evening...

Steak Burgers:
We used some steak we found on special at the local grocery store.  Cut the steaks into cubes and placed the cubes on a baking sheet.  We put the steak in the freezer for about 20 minutes and then pulsed it in the food processor in batches.  For each batch we put in a big sprig of Savory and a pinch of Kosher Salt.  Once all of the steak was ground we formed patties and put them on the grill.  DELICIOUS!  We ended up serving the burgers on regular Udi's bread.  I'm hoping our local stores will start carrying Udi's hamburger and hot dog buns before the end of the cookout season.

Blueberry Lemonade:
Blueberries have been going on special a lot lately so every time we see a buy one get one deal we stock up and freeze them in snack size bags.  This makes them very easy to throw in with smoothies!  For the Lemonade I added the following ingredients to the blender:
2 snack bags of frozen blueberries (not an exact science)
3/4cup Fresh squeezed lemon juice
3/4cup Sugar
2 cups of water
1 cup of ice

When I served this I filled the glass halfway with Blueberry Lemonade, added ice, then topped off with water.  Very refreshing.

I also made up a batch of Mint Simple Syrup.  I'm looking forward to making iced tea!

Bakery On Main

Let the fun begin!

Today I received a package filled with goodies from Bakery On Main.  I'm so excited it almost makes me want to wake the kids up and have them start taste testing! ...almost.  Breakfast will be here soon enough.
