My Grillmaster lights the grill once again!
It was a weeknight and I was wanting a simple supper, something that didn’t involve messing up a bunch of mixing bowls, pots and pans, and dinner plates. I didn’t feel like the clean-up.
So I picked up some burgers, already pre-formed! I was looking for easy, too. I glanced at the prices of the french fries in the freezer section and remembered the half bag of whole potatoes I had at home just waiting to be turned into delicious homemade fries.
As I went through my mental list at the grocery, I picked up some buns, a Vidalia onion, some iceburg lettuce (I know), and some hamburger sliced dill pickles, our favorite.
When we arrived home, my Grillmaster set about preparing the grill…charcoal only for him. I prepared the condiments for the burgers and my youngest daughter scrubbed and helped slice the potatoes for the fries.
What a meal! I took my mom (who is fighting cancer, on a bunch of meds, and nothing tastes good) a burger. She ate half of it and declared it was the tenderest grilled burger she’d ever had.
I know the cheese is not melted. Poor fellow, I forgot to give it to him and it never entered his mind to put some cheese on the burgers those last few seconds on the grill. So when he brought them in, I took a few of the hottest ones and threw some cheese on them.

TIP: When we light the grill, we usually do enough meat and veggies for more than one meal. This night we grilled a huge pack of barbequed chicken legs and some deer tenderloin wrapped with bacon to have another time. Leftover grilled goodies make for a quick and easy lunch!
