Chipotle Pork Burger

Burgers are finally making a come back on my blog.

I seriously eat or devour them all the time I just didn’t ever write down the recipe or take photos.  Anywho… it’s Friday and time to break out the burgers for this weekend.  It’s sunny here with a high of 100+ degrees, so you can bet that this bad boy will be going down with a cold brewsky.

I might even take a cold one in the toddler wadding pool.  You know the ones that blow up and keep about 6 inches of water and two weeks later they won’t keep any air.  I think they purposely do that so you have to go back to the store to purchase another pool.  Maybe one day we can have a real one but then the upkeep will outweigh the cost of a $10.00 pool.

Oh the decisions you have to make in life.

Blow up pool or real pool??  

I think I know my answer for the next 5+ years.

Chipotle Pork Burger

Luckily I have family members who have a pool so maybe if I cook them some chipotle pork burgers and bring the beer I get a free swim.  That’s how it works right?!

I’m also hoping that I can work on my pale skin color this weekend.  Usually I’m slathering on the 50 spf sunscreen and hours later I’m walking away with a deep cherry red sunburn.  I rarely tan but every summer I feel like I’m going to walk away with a nice golden tan.  Please talk some sense into me.

Please….. my skin would love you for it.  Don’t worry I won’t stop slathering on the sunscreen.  Safety first.

Cheers to a happy burger lovin’ weekend!
