Easiest, Yummiest, Summertime Dinner EVER!

Beef with Bacon & Bleu Slider

Jalapeno, Cheddar Beef Slider

Lamb Burger with Arugula & Rosemary/Garlic Mayonnaise

Sliders are the fastest, easiest thing to do for a large crowd of people because all you really have to deal with is making the burgers and providing the toppings. I stuck my buns in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes. Seasoned Ground Beef & Ground Lamb with Cavender's and grilled the burgers for about 5 minutes. Then we just put whatever we had in our fridge on top! Delicious, fast food that tastes WAY better than any fast food restaurant. And I highly recommend the lamb...baaaahhh!

Nelly Frittata

I've been trying to do the gluten free thing, but as you know, bread is my weakness. So even though I'm pretty sure I have a gluten allergy, it's just not easy for me to consistently eat like I should. Me without bread is like Abbott without Costello, like breakfast without bacon, like a junkie without a fix. It just doesn't work, and there's no reason to put my loving husband through the pain that is me, without bread. But since I'm trying to be good to my only-get-one-chance body, I have been trying to make some adjustments to my diet. And this is one of the latest gluten free creations. Chorizo, Egg & Potato Frittata. And yes, I am aware that this type of eating is not good for me either :) I'm a glutton for good food, it puts a smile on my face! Don't make me explain the junkie without a fix thing again.

Recipe here.
