Are these Burgers Done? Next Time Be Careful!
“I think these burgers need to go back on the grill,” my daughter said, as we sat on the deck at the season’s inaugural barbecue. I heard what she said but it was too late, I’d already taken a big bite. She was right. so she took the burgers, put them in the microwave, and the rest of the night was uneventful.
I went into work the next day and about 10, my stomach started feeling queasy. By 12:30, I was counting the hours til the place would close so I could go home and crawl into bed. My stomach felt like it was tied up in knots, and I tried to think of what would have created such turmoil. I don’t get sick that often, so I am not that familiar with ailments and remedies.
Then I thought about that nearly raw burger, and ouch! So that’s my lesson for the day. Cook burgers well, be really careful if they’re rare, and if someone suggests we cook them more, don’t take that first bite!
The good part was that after a day and night in bed, I woke up energized, and gave myself a treat. A day off from the cafe. So starting with an early morning work out at the Y, everything is ducky today.
