    For a solid decade people thought I was 18. (13-23). The part where people know I’m an adult and not a high schooler finally makes me feel super old. Which I know is silly, but I had a LONG time of looking 18. It was hard to realize it’s over.

    My husband totally wants a meat grinder to make our own burgers-with bits of bacon in them!

      I’ve never heard of a meat grinder! Would a food processor work? We just use our hands.

        we have a stand mixer, and you can get an attachment for it that grinds meat-that’s what josh wants. (well, he wants to buy half a cow, and then if we have our OWN grinder we can get all the meat cut for roasts and steaks, and just grind it when we want burgers and things-that’s his whole grand plan!)
        you can kinda do it in a food processor i think though-i saw something in cooking light this summer about that i think?

    Those burgers look AWESOME.

    I’m 26 and feel right on track. πŸ™‚

    Instead of revealing my age, I will reveal my awesome bacon cooking secret: I cut the bacon in half and lay the pieces out on cookie sheets. Put them in the oven, set the temp to 375 and the timer to 20 mins. When the timer’s done, the bacon’s done. (The original directions said 400 degrees but that was too hot for our oven) This is a great easy way to make a lot of bacon at once. It’s not so fun cleaning the baking sheets (you can lay down foil first if you want) , but it’s worth it!

      I think Michael has tried something similar! I will have to ask him. It might be a great way to cook the bacon for the turkey burgers next time…

    Where do you get your onion buns from?! They look so good!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I got them at Fred Meyer. I can look at the brand tonight. They are REALLY good and not high in calories (surprising).

        Oh that would be great….Thanks! I live in NY and don’t have a Fred Meyer’s by me so hopefully I can get them by me!

    I now have a serious burger cravinG!

    Yum! I have to make these burgers!!

    I have 2 kitties too and they’re both getting on (both are 12). One has definitely gained a whole lot of weight, the other has the opposite problem and I can’t seem to keep the weight on him!

    I’m 32, but I feel a hundred. I have a sore knee at the moment, high cholesterol (don’t know why, I was vegetarian when it skyrocketed, probably genetics :s), IBS, migraines, the list is endless. Plus I have 3 kids who never cease to make me feel old πŸ˜›

    And I want those onion buns! We don’t get anything like that really in Australia πŸ™

      Well I suppose I am glad I’m not the only one feeling old and broken. πŸ˜‰ But I don’t even have kids!!!

    I’m 28, but I feel a lot older at times – especially when I deal with doctors who are younger than me!

    Something to make you feel young? Morgan Freeman didn’t start acting until he was 34. Ruth “DJ Mamy” Flowers was 65 when she started DJing and has taken the French club scene by storm.
