Everyone brought a little somethin’ somethin’ and we dug right in. It wasn’t until I was elbow deep in ground beef and seasoning that someone realized the tank was out on the grill. After a few frustrating minutes, we decided to pan sear the burgers, toast the buns, boil up some 100 calorie turkey dogs and caramelize onions. Who cares if the grill isn't working as long as as the food still gets cooked, right?
I think the highlight of my day, however, were those gosh darn turkey dogs. For once in my adult life I didn't feel bad about slobbering on the ketchup or going back for seconds. (Okay, maybe I had thirds.)
