Quickie Pepper Burger


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.

    The burger looks fantastic, especially for some who absolutely loves grilled peppers as much as I do 😀

      Red peppers are our favorite accompaniment; that’s why you see so many of them on my blog. They are hideously expensive most of the time, but at certain times there is ONE store that will run them on special for 4/$1.! I load up and keep them in the back of the refrigerator where it is the coldest and keep the Fresh Paper bits in with them. They will stay good for about two weeks that way. When they begin to look sad, I roast the lot of ’em, and toss them into the freezer. They are not as good after having been frozen, but still super good as opposed to none at all! ;->

        couldn’t you grow them in your garden? I think, with the right climate they are easy to grow and peppers should preferably be organic. 🙂

          No garden possible here. The ground is too hard – it is caliche clay – and the animals going by would just help themselves. Our fence is no real deterrent to the javelina and deer. They come right into the yard to get the acorns that fall off the trees, even the ones right next to the house. They have no fear, and wouldn’t hesitate a moment to munch down anything I could grow. The only answer would be a greenhouse, and they would probably just kick that down to get at the food.

          I have grown tomatoes and peppers, but that was when I lived in Florida, and pretty much anything would grow there!
