Do Not Cook Hamburgers On The Grill In The Rain.....

O.k., so it's pouring rain here in good old Massachusetts & not just rain but wind swept sideways slap you in the face rain!

~ me!!

This morning I felt like having a taste of summer so I took out two hamburger patties to thaw in the fridge while I was at work. I thought it would be a nice idea to make them on the grill when I got in OMG I guess I should have checked the weather.........

I knew it would be dark by the time I got in so I figured I could just turn on the light on my back deck well nobody warned me about the RAIN!

It didn't go so well, I got drenched the dogs kept running in and out they were wet and stinky :( but in the end we had two very delicious cheese burgers with low fat Swiss cheese some onion, tomato, pickles on light whole wheat buns & sweet potato "fries". I try to keep the meals fun & tasty because eating on a diet isn't always fun.

I cooked the sweet potato in the microwave and when it was soft I sliced it into chips turned on the broiler seasoned the chips up sprayed them with some Pam & tossed them under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up.

I would have taken a picture but it was so good we gobbled it all up ~ YUMMO!

Well, I"m off to write my shopping list, need to get a few things for our Special Guest :)

Until tomorrow, Be Safe, Stay Dry & God Bless!


  1. I love anything cooked on the grill! It just seems to tast better!! I will have to try those sweet potatoes...sounds GREAT!! Have a great evening!! LYLAS!!

  2. I am with Sis, everything taste better on the grill. My Tracy makes the sweet potato fries but I don't think she cooks them first. Will have to try that... sounds quicker:) Have a fun shopping trip!
