Answer me these four things please. With summer here, there will be a lot of build your owns. Ahhhhhhh, what is that? What is I referring to. I like to bbq a lot during the summer to keep the house cool. With that in mind, we do a lot of carne asada on the grill.... (to die for... for sure)!!!! Be we also do a lot of grilled chicken breasts and hamburgers, and eat them with a salad. With this in mind... tell me what is on your build your owns...
Me... let my opinion count please as I have some gained poundage that should carry some clout around this place....
Burger! For my favorite... I would say...
Hamburger patty cooked medium. (yes I am well aware of the dangers... thank you... grinning)
sauteed mushrooms and onions
pepper jack cheese... (is it pepper jack, or pepperjack???)
raw red onion
and A1 sauce..... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...... so good....
My chicken sandwich
Chicken breast grilled... (I will like this one well thank you very much)
Pepperjack... (since I spelled it pepper jack last time, just putting a little excitement into this)
Salad... (I am the salad Goddess of Salem is all I have to say on this one~ BEWARE)
I like a combo of spinach leaves and bib lettuce. It has to be fresh, fresh, fresh!!!
Then add the following
Diced or cherry tomatoes
Avocados... (a staple in my kitchen)
Honey roasted sunflower seeds (notice I said honey roasted, it is the key here)
Sometimes a few dried cherries
Sliced red onion
and... add a sweet dressing like poppy seed or mango... something exotic perhaps...
OH.... and crisp bacon bits... no imitation, slap that bacon on the rack and broil it til it is crisp and crumple it up... add a few croutons. So good....
A few salads I am fond of as well that I make...
Spinach with fresh strawberries, mandarin oranges, boiled egg wedges, red onion slices, crumbled up bacon, mushrooms and sprouts... the big ones, not the little wimpy angel hair kind. I also like to add honey roasted sunflower seeds or almonds to my spinach salad.
Chinese chicken salad...
