Hey Steven... It's National Hamburger Day (Observed)

"I'm not telling you, 'Never eat a hamburger.' Just eat the good ones with real beef, you know, like the ones from that mom-and-pop diner down the street. And it's so good, that when you take a bite out of that burger, you just know somewhere in the world a vegan is crying."

-Homer Simpson

Ahhhhh... National Hamburger Day is finally here! I start getting excited about this day as early as January 1st, just ask my good friend Steven, who has been sharing this holiday, and challenging me to come up with the perfect burger for the last 3 years! :)It's our tradition. :) Actually, it isn't just National Hamburger Day, the month of May is National Hamburger month. How cool is that? I love a good burger, always have. When I was a little girl, that was my favorite treat to get when we went out to eat. I still mourn the loss of the Big Barn restaurants. LOL.

This year, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different with my entry, so I decided to include a classic burger retromercial from YouTube. Was there a better commercial than "Where's The Beef?" Clara Peller was perfect as the slightly grumpy granny, in search of, "the beef." Is there a classic fast food commercial you enjoy? If so, feel free to share in the comment thread for this entry.

And now... here is my offering for National Hamburger Day...

Be sure to go over to Steven's blog,(sometimes)photoblog, to see his best burger for National Hamburger Day 2007. His hamburgers always looks so delicious. Sometimes Steven has been very good at reading my mind, and coming up with the same side dishes as me. Tee Hee. Hey Steven, did you guess my side dishes this year???? WINK!

Oh man! I almost went with a bacon cheeseburger this year! Cooked tater tots with cheese instead.

Wicked good fun again this year!

I recently bought a stack of frozen ground sirloin patties. I've cooked them twice in the past week. John likes them, which is saying a lot. It's hard to find meat he likes. One thing, though. The smokey cheddar I have doesn't melt very well.
