His & Her’s Burgers and Brews

20 Jul

After a hectic morning and an afternoon of yard and house work, the husband and I were definitely feeling burgers. We are very different people though, so when I said, “I bought these Mahi-Mahi …,” he looked like he wanted to cry. Being the amazing woman I am, I also bought some fresh butcher-ground sirloin just for him. And the kids, probably.

Mixed the ground sirloin with a little seasoning salt, pepper, and minced garlic. “Oooh, fancy,” said the man.

Oven French fries, homemade tartar sauce

Soak fries in salt water for about 15-20 minutes and dry completely before lightly tossing in olive oil. Season and bake at 425 for 40-45 minutes.

Sauce: throw a couple blobs of mayo, 2-4 pickle slices, and a dash each of salt, pepper, and Frank’s Red Hot into the food processor. The longer it sits, the better it gets. I made extra for tuna Mahi-Mahi salad sandwiches tomorrow.

A classy drink, to sip while I catch up on dvr’d Real Housewives episodes. Don’t judge. You know you secretly love it.
