After Monday night's dinner debacle I was really needing to get back into the cooking game. Burgers seemed like a good idea - pretty hard to mess up, tasty, an overall winner. The fact that I didn't break a sweat while grilling made it even better. I sauteed some spinach to go with these little darlings. Unfortunately, I forgot how much spinach wilts down and only had about a tablespoon. Sad, because it was quite good.
Overall, the taste of this meal was fantastic. However, if this meal was being judged on looks - it might not fare to well. The burgers shrunk, I stink at cutting tomatoes, and the thin buns i used for the bread made the whole thing look kind of crazy. We've already discussed the poor little dollop of spinach. Does that matter? No. What matters is that I was full and happy. Hope you enjoy!
