Wow, I thought tonight would never get here!  I don’t know what it is about Friday afternoon workdays, but it almost seems as if the clock is going in reverse!

Breakfast was 1/2 a multi-grain bagel with 1 egg and an ounce of cheese – this bagel is from Panera and I love the oats on the outside!


With a slice of watermelon on the side which was so good and refreshing!


Lunch was leftover pork tostadas – 2 ounces pork, 2 tostadas, pickled jalapenos, a little queso fresco cheese.


With sliced cucumber and apple on the side:


My plan was to make pizza as it is Friday night, but with temps in the 90’s, not so much!  I thought hamburgers, but that’s kind of boring, so I searched and came up with Gyros Burgers!  These were so flavorful – as Tony said “the flavor pops in your mouth!”

  • 1/2 pound ground beef (I used sirloin)
  • 1/2 pound ground veal
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pocket pitas, split
  • diced cucumber
  • diced tomato




I sliced some Farmers market cheese to munch on the side:


Since I thought the meat was really “soft” and put the burgers in the freezer while the coals came to temp.  That way the meat had a chance to sear on the one side and it was a perfect flip!  Perfect crust!


My messy plate!  I had half of a pita, 5 ounce patty (before cooking), cucumber sauce, and diced cucumber.  This one is a keeper!


Gotta scoot, we have neighbors coming over to have drinks outside – I’ll catch up on your blogs over the weekend!
