The magic of a cheeseburger.

Diet, Personal

February 23, 2011



Hamburger!Tonight I made a special treat for Bennie and his brother: homemade hamburgers from scratch (first time I’ve ever done it, and surprisingly quick and easy to do so), seasoned up with yummy spices, and grilled to perfection on the BBQ.

To make it even more tasty, I added some (Daiya) faux-cheese on the patty when it was close to being done and toasted some GFCFSF burger buns I found at a recent excursion to Whole Foods (from a bakery in Davis whose name I can’t recall at the moment.)

Slam them all together and I presented Bennie with a whopper of a cheeseburger (no pun intended) – and he was in heaven! The poor kid has gotten used to eating plain ol’ patties, with no seasoning, cheese or buns wrapped around it… but tonight, he gorged himself on a huge, fresh, tasty, seasoned cheeseburger WITH bun. His eyes said it all (see the attached pic!)

The smile on my face during dinner was permanent — it’s the little things, but it felt great to let Bennie have something that most people take for granted… but to the best of my recollection, he had never before enjoyed: a cheeseburger.
