Was I really born a blonde?*

I just spent the day grocery shopping and preparing a meal - FOR NO ONE!

I'm so stupid. CSJ had to go out of town today for work, and won't be back until tomorrow. Yet, while shopping, I picked up pub burgers (our favorite) for dinner.

A little while ago, I started to prepare dinner. I went out in the freakin' heat (!) to grill those pub burgers, right after I made a pan of caramelized onions (MY favorite!) to top those burgers with, and made, what I like to call, Chopped Capresi Salad (again, our favorite).

I knew Stud would be over at his bestie's house for the night, so I figured it would just be the two of us. Nice, right? I was just about to make another salad (some Asian chopped salad kit thing I buy at Sam's Club, that CSJ loves) when it hits me. HE'S NOT COMING HOME TONIGHT, JACKWAGON! Argh! Good thing I didn't make that salad.

I actually just called Stud, cuz I thought maybe he, Bestie and Bestie's brother would want to come over and eat, but no such luck. Great.

So, now YOU'RE stuck having dinner with me!! Come on, I'm just about to set the table.

Pub Burgers with Cheese
I could eat this entire pan of onions by themselves.
"Chopped" Capresi Salad
Ok, dig in whenever you're ready. I'm off to go pull my hair out.

*That was for you, Suz. =)

Okay, so I can have a little bit of that cheese, but I don't eat beef. I can do some onions and pick some tomatoes out of the salad. Yummmmm!

Okay, it may be 6a.m. but I could totally go for those burgers about now.

Visiting from the Post A-Z Road Trip - I'm on a quest to visit all 1,718 people who took part!

I'll join you for dinner, if I can bring my wife too! Everything looks invitingly delicious. I'm licking my lips doing some virtual tasting. (LOL) Thanks for sharing.

I'm wired so I'm catching up on your posts - this looks great, I would have been there in a flash! As a matter of fact your next trip to CA would include making the dinner as a thank you for staying with us!

Lisa, you are such a sweet little thing - I really do want to meet up & I'm serious, if you want to come to SoCal there is an open door.

Thank you so much for all your support - your words are so encouraging - lots of love, Becky
