Bacon, Cheese and Caramelized Onion Burger
I was debating with myself, as I usually do, should I post one more smoothie and add it to the collection or a burger. Well, of course burger won; my sinful, delicious, and juicy burger! You’re allowed to drool… Even though I am not that happy the way the pictures came out. My hunger struck like a lightning in the middle of the summer, so I had to move fast, otherwise I wouldn’t guarantee anyone’s safety around me at that moment.
I eat my lunch around 3-4 pm. Ever since I started to workout twice a day I skip “real” dinner. Instead, I eat something light, like fruit, veggies and nuts to keep me full. My daily “food” feast includes: smoothies, coffee, water, tea, nuts, fresh fruits and veggies and plain salads… So, you see, I needed a red meat and preferably Lil’ bloody. Little that I know, crispy bacon was on it, cheese, and caramelized onion. Ok! I went crazy with toppings (no, I didn’t), but it was so worth it. I swear, it was like I was dreaming when I took a first bite, which was right after I took these pics. Maybe I was too hungry, maybe cravings were speaking louder than they should, but what a hell, I keep telling myself, it’s a reward for working so hard all week long, I shouldn’t feel so guilty… Which reminds me a smoothie post is coming on Wednesday.
Spring break is here, my boy is back from his band trip and all three are home for the next 9 days.
Woohoo! Right!!! My stress level is… Alright, for now! I’ve been making their favorite meals, I listen to their stories, we are having fun so far. I sing as loud as I can to keep them out of my office when I’m working… And it’s working! 🙂
I’ve been MIA from social media for a couple of days, but that’s because I am spending so much time with the kids and surprisingly, I’m going to sleep earlier than midnight, I am only trying! I’m a night owl, and a zombie when I wake up in the morning, but in all seriousness, I need to train myself to sleep longer than 4 hours in one piece, which again is incredibly hard. I took my time last week and updated my about page and a few older posts, made a gazillion pictures, which I didn’t share yet, but overall I’ve enjoyed my social media/blogging free time. I can’t stay away for too long, simply because it became my life and daily routine, so I always come back.
If I haven’t answered your email yet, my apologies… Please understand!
