4th of July burger bonanza

I fired up the barbecue grill to make a few burgers for Anthony and I since it's the 4th of July, and that's what we do in the good ol' U-S-of-A. This was after I spent a large part of the afternoon doing yard work in the 100 degree heat.

I bought hamburger patties at Walmart Market that were mixed with cheddar cheese and bacon. I'd buy those again without hesitation, they were delicious. I may be a lame cook in an actual kitchen but I'm a pretty good hamburger cooker on a barbecue.

We've had a break from monsoon storms for a few days. There was still a pretty sunset anyway. (Monsoon storm days tend to bring the most spectacular sunsets of the year in my opinion).

One of the things that disappoints me about living in this house is that we don't have line of sight to any of the dozen or so fireworks shows around the Tucson metro. So, staying home means listening to distant boom boom boom without any of the visuals. Poor Lucky hates fireworks so he couldn't stop trembling for a couple of hours until the noises subsided.

Happy 240th Birthday America!

Bacon and cheddar burgers on the grill

They were really delicious.
Two kinds of meat and cheese in one patty.
Whoever thought of this deserves a raise.
