Fast-Food? No Thank You!

On the way home from running some Saturday errands, I very nearly convinced myself to stop in at a fast-food establishment to deal with some hunger issues that were starting to get the better of me. I'm glad I didn't.

Instead I decided to make a sandwich at home, and what a sandwich it was! Certainly it was worthy of a picture so that I could share it with you. Looks pretty amazing, doesn't it?

It all began by pulling out of the freezer a homemade burger patty that I made a while ago; half beef, half pork, some garlic and cayenne pepper, and of course, chopped raw onion. I cut the burger patty in half lengthwise in order to make it not quite as thick and to allow it to grill quicker. When it was nearly done, I basted it with "Bull's-Eye Hot Southern Cajun" barbecue sauce (my favourite, I might add).

Then came the wonderful fixings. This began with toasted European rye bread, some "Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise," a couple slices of raw onion, some Canadian Old Cheddar, Hot Chunky Salsa, and two chopped "California Pickled Hot Chili Peppers." Then came the meat paddies, some more Hot Chunky Salsa, and some sliced Garlic Dill Pickles.

The only problem that I didn't foresee was how to dislocate my jaw enough to get the thing in my mouth ... but I managed. It was soooo good.

So next time you're thinking of a greasy-spoon restaurant, I'd challenge you to try a special creation of your own at home instead. No fast-food joint can even come close, and besides, you'll eat healthier and have fun doing it.

Happy eating.
