Sometimes, a simple meal is best. Nothing fancy here - just your basic cheeseburger, some Cape Cod potato chips, a nice green salad with balsamic vinaigrette, and a homebrewed pale ale. The only thing to add would be a nice fresh tomato from the garden, but that will have to wait until mid-summer. Linda and the kids like to add some ketchup and mustard, and the kids go even further by adding relish and pickles, especially if the relish and pickles are made by our good friend, Sarah.
I don't have much of a recipe to give here. The hamburger is from our monthly meat CSA share from Chestnut Farms in Hardwick, MA. I don't add anything to it. Each burger is hand-formed and about 1/3 lb apiece. I grill them for about 15 minuted over medium heat, flipping twice, with the second flip coinciding with the cheese addition. A perfect medium to medium-rare.
