Weird Story of the Day...

I just made and served cheese-burgers and fries for a Hen Night for one of my sister's girlfriends. Guess that wouldn't be weird under normal circumstances. But - it was at a mansion. One of the girls was a countess. And they had a butler, that for the first three minutes addressed me with "miss". Now, don't you come tell me I don't live in a fairy tale country!

(Seriously - that was AWESOME! It was like taken out of a sixties movie or something!! Ok, so the sixties might not be fairytale century, but still...)


Hubby's re-do of the burger today Sunday, but the ones served looked pretty much the same...

Whoaaaa, I love the look of them potato wedges! I don't eat burgers often but I gotta have them when the craving comes, big juicy beef patty (sigh)...

Zarah, these look luscious...but do you eat burgers, or only make them for others? I'm confused. In any case, they look worthy of any mansion or countess, for that matter.

A mansion and a countess? Goodness - sounds like an episode of The Edwardian Country House (which I've been watching, and love!). Do you have any photos??

Oslosfoodie - I usually only eat burgers at the local café, where they do an awesome veggie-burger - and then of course my own, where I make the buns and EVERYTHING else (well, almost!) myself. For a long time I went without burgers, but then I found out I could do veggie-patties myself and that way get all of the ketchup, melted cheese, mustard, guacamole etc. my heart could desire - so now they're on the menu every now and again! Admitted, all of the ketchup 'n stuff was what I craved the most - there's something about the spices and all that (pardon my French!) gunk that's just hard to be without!

I can see why you're confused Julie! This burger was made by my boyfriend for himself, he just let me take a picture so I had something to endorse my post with. The burgers served where meaty as well - even though I've begun eating a little more meat, it's gonna take a while before I graduate to mince... But pass the plate of bacon, would you?;-) Of course, when I make something with meat for others, I'll taste it to make sure it's got the right amount of salt, pepper and other spices - but I'm still on the veggie-patties for burgers...

Niki - No, unfortunately! You know what, the first thing I thought when I stepped inside was thinking: why oh WHY!!? didn't I bring my camera?! I usually always bring it to take pictures of the food I serve, just for future references and for the blog, but this time I forgot to bring it. Or rather, I had my bike packed with all the goodies, ready to go, then remembered I forgot to pack the camera and thought "to h*** with it, it's just a burger!" Well, it was just a burger, but served in a VERY special place! The place was absolutely gorgeous, with all of the old, weird knick-knacks and a layout that would make new architects scratch their heads - let me just say that the working triangle (you know, the line between the fridge, stove and sink) was NOT applied in that kitchen. But as the butler (who told many a fascinating story about the place and the family - he is worth a post in himself!) told me: you didn't need a working triangle when you had 5 people in the kitchen as it was way back when... I'd still need to wash my hands, but maybe that's just me, I dunno?!
