Fourth o' July

You're supposed to eat ridiculously too much...because overconsumption is what America is all about (did you see the nathan's hot dog contest?). Anywho, I made gorgonzola, roasted garlic, and bacon stuffed burgers. The meat itself was seasoned with some green onions sauteed in the bacon drippings, ketchup, worcestershire, granulated garlic, and paprika. Here's what the inside looks like:

A few friends came over and brought corn on the cob and Long Trail Blackbeary Wheat beer.

For dessert, they brought some strawberries and blueberries. I used 'em to whip up a compote with orange juice, lime juice, a jalapeno pepper, and some balsamic vinegar (though after I sent them out for sugar...seeing as I had absolutely none in the apartment). I topped an ice cream sandwich with the compote, then put a toasted marshmallow on top. Look how it ended up being patriotic!

Sure sure, but does it top the rattlesnake and bratwurst-wrapped-in-ground-beef- wrapped-in-bacon i had on the 4th?
