Burgers, Beer and Rock Band

Happy Sunday!!  I've discovered a few new things over the weekend that I wanted to share with you.    #1:  I love lamb!  #2: Meeting new friends is underrated.  #3: My new friend, Christopher, is an awesome chef and host. #4: Rock Band is still fun!

Christopher works with my husband.  I met him only 2 weeks ago and I think he just may be my new male BFF.  He doesn't realize this yet so let's keep it on the DL so we don't scare him off.   He's amazing not only because he's an all around nice guy but this man can cook AND he knows how to throw a party.  We both look forward to learning more about his cooking skills.  He claims his specialty is whipping up sauces.  We can't wait for him to prove it.

Below are pictures of the sliders he made us.   They were full of flavor and so delicious. My favorite was the lamb.  The spices were just right and didn't overpower the flavor of the meat.  Everything meshed very well together.  

Starting at the left, smoked gouda infused ground beef burger wrapped in bacon served on a roasted garlic aioli and garnished with greens and tomato.  Middle: fennel crusted lamb burger on a creamy raita and topped with a red onion marmalade. Right: seared salmon steaks glazed with a ginger teriyaki and paired with sliced avocado and mango.


We really enjoyed the food, meeting new people and jamming out with the Band.   Will-I-Am can rock the mic surprisingly well.  Probably one of the most entertaining, yet good singers yet. You practice at home a lot don't you?!   Let's do this again very soon.
