The Redeeming Cheeseburgers

The Dizzle and I came up with a brilliant plan yesterday.
The plan was to hit the gym {weights for him, Zumba for me}, then we would go home and shower.
You see, the showering part was necessary because it had been two whole days for me since my last.
Gross? Yes, I know. But sometimes that's how I roll.

Anyway, after that, we were then going to go on a little dinner date.
Somewhere Downtown, somewhere with a glorious view.
Because it's Summer time, damn it, and we need to take advantage!

But then the gym happened and we got lazy. {Typical}.
And going out for dinner just seemed like the last thing we wanted to do.

So we went to the grocery store instead and sat in the parking lot contemplating what we would get.
The Dizzle asked if I wanted a salad.
Boring. No thank you.

Then The Dizz asked if I wanted him to make me homemade burgers.

A flashback happened from the first {and only} time he made those for me.
You see, he thought the garlic salt didn't have salt, or something like that, and then a horrendous thing happened where he basically dumped an entire bottle of that seasoning in with the meat and it was just a 
big lump of saltiness.
And I tried to choke the burger down with a smile, I really did.
We had only been dating a few months, you see, and I had to make him feel good you know?
But you guys, these "burgers" were just gross.
Straight up salty grossness.

So when he suggested making burgers again, 
I think my look of horror may have given away how I felt about that plan.

And you know men. They like a good challenge.

So he took my hand and marched us right into that grocery store, determined to make the best gosh darn burgers in town!

While he grabbed the ingredients, I made sure to grab a bottle of wine.
Just in case I needed something to chase it down, you know?

Anyway, we got to his place and he went to work.
I pranced around the kitchen, doing a little jig here, a little taste of cheese there, and if you didn't know, is a very key part in our dinner making. The prancing, that is.

So. Verdict on those cheeseburgers 2.0?

Two thumbs up!
The Dizzle conquered the cheeseburger conundrum!
Not too salty, not too bland, they were just right.

I scarfed it down before I even had a chance to take a picture.
So you'll just have to take my word for it that they were amazing.
Oh, and we dusted off the bottle of wine too, just in case you were wondering.


I hope you all have amazing weekends with amazing cheeseburgers if possible.



  1. I've always enjoyed that particular Pinot. Also, tell him to try putting bleu cheese chunks or bits of jalapeno in the ground beef when he's forming the patties. It's amazing.

  2. Gimme that burger pronto. With tons of blue cheese and mushrooms on top. Thanks :)

  3. Yum. Reminds me of the time my husband tried to make dinner right after we were married. He called it "meat and cheese casserole." It was ground beef in the bottom of a baking dish, covered in shredded cheese. No sauce. No seasonings. Just meat and cheese. Casserole. Poor guy was so proud!

  4. Hahaha, I remember the first time the hubs cooked for me. Not good at all. That meat was so dry, bland and just not good. I ate it because we had just started dating and he was trying to impress me. But now I love when I tell him how much that meal sucked, haha. He has reedemed himself and makes the best burgers and chicken on the grill!

    Hope you have a fabulous weekend too!

  5. dang it - i kept scrolling down in hopes for a picture! :)

  6. LOL I got the besttttt visual of VDizz working hard in a apron with no shirt on (well I mean you talk about his bod all the time, I imagine this would be the OPTIMAL way he would cook for you) and you prancing around him, taking slices of cheese, pouring yourself bottles of wine. Haha oh that's not how it goes?

  8. ohhh, girl, prancing is pretty much the most important part of any duo-dinner-making process. i'm profesh status, for sure.

    and now i need a cheeseburger, see how that works? yuuummm

  9. just the description of burgers is making me hungry. sounds like a perfect night! btw, very pretty view behind those wine glasses!

  10. waitttt i want a picture of the cheeseburgers!!!!

  11. I love the kitchen/cooking prancing!! Probably my favorite thing to do (wine in tow of course)

  12. Pinot Noir is one of my favorites!! Oh, and the cheeseburger sounds delish too :) Hope you have a good weekend!

  13. Haha. That's such a funny story. My guy has made me burgers too. THANK GOD that he can cook! They were delicious, too. Have a good one.

    xo, Adriana.
    Horses of Ares

  14. Seriously that makes me want a cheeseburger oh and wine of course! Glad it's Friday!

  15. Have a wonderful weekend, Sweetheart. Love you!

  16. I can haz cheeseburger? Haha but seriously that sounds amazing. I want to date with you guys.

  17. gosh, cheeseburgerz. yum.

    about the shower thing? you ain't the only one. sometimes i shower every other day, junooo... preserving water. Water is sacred. Must use wisely. Yet, lady bitz are clean all day err day, mkay.

  18. haha the things you say and eat when you're in the honeymoon stages!! When we first started dating (his bday to be exact) I made my husband portbello mushroom burgers(big deal because I don't cook) only to find out 2-3 years later he hates mushrooms!! haha and i don't shower for 2 days sometimes too...i was my hair every other day, so that's like 4 days of not washing my hair...thank goodness for dry shampoo :)

  19. Two days without showering is nothing, I tell you. Nothing. When we first moved into our new city apartment, I was afraid to leave and had LOTS of alone time that I used to unpack. I think I showed twice in like a 7 day period. That, sweet girl, is gross. Haha!

    Meanwhile, the secret to a delicious burger? Cook it in butter instead of cooking spray. :) The more butter, the better. And yes, that's also the "secret" to curves that just won't quit, too. Ha.

  20. homemade cheeseburgers are the best. Although now I guess I have to make homemade veggies burgers - surprisingly difficult. Is that the view from your place?

  21. Hope your weekend kept getting better!

  22. i love that pinot. and any time the boy wants to cook is a good day in my book

  23. I'm glad he was able to redeem himself!

    Mirassou makes the best Pinot in the world. Hands down.

  24. That's The Dizzle's place??

    I need to move my butt down to SD pronto just so I can have that luxurious view.
