Out of the Blue

Today is National Hamburger Day here in the US. This is fitting for what is arguably our national dish. It certainly works for me, as the humble burger is one of my favorite dishes. To that end, I have some ground beef to celebrate the occasion properly. But the weather isn't cooperating, as there's too much rain to run up the flag in Manstovia. MrsBlue does not love me frying burgers in the house, so my diplomacy is going to have to be on point if I'm going to make these today. Wish me luck.
