You may have noticed by now, I like to do things quickly. Especially when it comes to food. Usually when I’m cooking it’s because I’m starving. So if a meal takes longer than 15 minutes to cook, I might die.
Okay, fine…not really but…clearly hunger makes me dramatic.
When it comes to quick meals…ground beef is usually my go-to protein. It takes like ten minutes to cook and all you have to do is mix it up with some vegetables and you have a meal.
Lately every single lunch I’ve eaten has been ground beef with taco seasonings over a salad.
I was starting to get bored with that combo so I decided to switch it up a bit. Actually, I’ll be honest…I wasn’t bored at all. I seriously love eating taco salads. I look forward to them and eat them pretty much every day. I eat taco salads so much that I feel guilty for eating them so frequently. Not because I feel guilty for eating so much fat. We’ve already dispelled the myth that fat is unhealthy.
I feel guilty because I have this idea in my head that I’m supposed to eat something different every day.
So, I decide to eat something different. Then I inevitably think, “Man, I really wish I was eating a taco salad instead of this.” and return to my trusty salad until I eventually forget my previous experience and repeat this vicious cycle.
All this to say…
The last time I decided to switch things up, I made sliders. Primal Palate’s Coffee Break Sliders to be more exact. I was intrigued by this recipe because…coffee and ground beef. Together. I love them separately so why the heck not. Sounds weird, right?
I don’t have a yard…or a grill…or time to fire up an outdoor grill. So I just used my George Foreman Grill. Which worked perfectly.
My pictures are different colors because I’m bad at pictures. Except I just realized that if I put an outdoor florescent bulb in my desk lamp…it looks like I’m taking the photo in sunlight. Tricky.
When the burgers were done, I wrapped them up in some lettuce, threw on some tomatoes from my parents’ garden…and scarfed down a few. Because they’re sliders. So you can do that.
The less I eat bread, the more I realize it’s just a tasteless holder for the good stuff and the only reason I really liked bread is because of the emotional attachment. Get outta here bread, I have lettuce, now.
…anyway. That’s what I ate. What are you eating, anything good? Let me know in the comments!
