View Full Version : I had the most insanely fulfilling cheeseburger just now

I have been starving all day.

All day

I eat both breakfast and lunch at work because I live an hour away and go to the gym first thing in the morning. So usually I keep toast, yogurt, cold cuts, etc in the fridge at work and then don't have to worry about eating.

Only today I screwed up. I had one yogurt to eat (yum) and at lunch I found that my sandwich meat had gone bad. Instead of a cheese sandwich, I had just cheese and figured I'd make it until I got home.

I got home 40 minutes ago with my stomach rumbling and my head light.

I went to my fridge and grabbed yellow onion and red bell pepper and cut both finely and tossed it in a bowl with lean hamburg. Then I liberally added garlic salt, oregano and crushed red pepper.

I mixed all that into patties and cooked them on a George Forman grill. Then I plopped a can of B&M original baked beans into the microwave and got out some white American cheese, 4 slices of Italian bread and ketchup.

I assembled the bread, meat, cheese and ketchup into 2 burgers, then spooned beans onto my plate.

The first bite was ecstasy; a bit too much oregano, but the soft Italian bread was a good mix with the greasy burger. The crushed red pepper almost made my mouth scream, but then the sweet taste of the beans negated the fire feel.

I just washed it all down with an ice cold glass of 1% milk.

I think this was as close to food porn as I have ever experienced. Damn, I was hungry. But now full and happy.

I can't even concentrate long enough to make a sandwich while I'm starving, let alone a burger. That sounds damn good, though.

Took maybe 3 minutes to make the patties and 7 minutes to cook.

I could use a smoke.
