The barbecue must go on
By the time Husband had part of dinner on the grill, it began to pour rain. Ever the champion, he continued to barbecue our veggie burgers, tin foil-wrapped green beans, and pineapple slices!
You will notice that this picture was taken from the comfort and dryness of INSIDE.
While I was making supper preparations inside, I noticed the caloric difference between the thin hamburger buns I recently bought and the puffy ones that Husband bought. Which ones have less calorie?
Lo and behold, the puffy buns have 10 fewer calories than the thin! SACRILEGE. But that’s marketing for you. I hear the word “thin”, and I’m sold! What a fool.
I still had a thin bun because I actually prefer their texture. Husband had a great idea to try grilling pineapple slices on the barbecue and top the burgers off with a honey barbecue sauce. This was an EXCELLENT idea. Delicious! We also had green beans (saturated in butter) and I added a few HULK strawberries to give this plate some pizzazz. That was directly influenced by having a food blog. I am feeling the benefits already!
When asked about how she felt about pineapple on burgers, Dr. Snuggles replied with this look.
The husband purchased a variety of dessert items for this evening. Last evening, we were dessert-less and I almost had a SMART FOOD SNACK ATTACK (Only laziness prevented me from getting my hands on the white cheddar goodness). He purchased some chocolate ice cream sandwiches and this blueberry tart.
I chose the tart because:
1) It sounded more appealing
2) It had about 70 calories less a serving
3) I could top it off with blueberries
Not a bad way to conclude the day!
Now I am getting ready to watch a television show about the Oasis of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world. Maybe I will also have a cup of tea. I said that last night, but never did. Maybe tonight is the night! (Watching shows about cruise ships, drinking tea…I am kind of geriatric).
