I guess we are back in the burger-for-lunch-nearly-every-day mode again. The availability of red peppers seems to bring this out. I must admit that we do not fight this feeling very hard. I just get some nice, lean meat ground up for us at the grocery store and make all things hamburger-y – regulation burgers, stuffed peppers, tostadas, burritos, meatloaf, spaghetti sauce, chili, and whatever else I think of – for about a week.
The burger is shown here at the very bottom of the stack, covered with a slice of melted Cheddar, grilled onions and peppers, and fresh tomato slices. We’re onto Romaine and red lettuce lately, so there is a bowl or a pile of it with every lunch. Dinners turn out to be barely more than snacks these days, so I guess we are officially Old Folks now – you know – big lunch and a bowl of cereal for supper! No, we don’t really eat cereal for supper, but are finding that less food is necessary after a big lunch, eaten late in the day.
But tonight, we are having grilled chicken breast, mashed potatoes and collard greens. We had our usual big Sunday brunch and naps, and now it is already past six o’clock, so the next meal will be supper, rather than lunch.
