Best Burgers in Town!

Joel and I are foodies....and we LOVE trying new places until we find the best of all different foods! Burgers are one of our favorite things to eat. We have tried many places in and close to the town we live in and hadn't found a place that really swept us off our feet. We love Twisted Root Burger for a different type of burger, but hadn't found a good ole' down home, freshly grilled, greasy, messy burger......until last night.

We had heard that a little hole in the wall bar down the street from where we live had great burgers. We decided to check it out:-) The place sits right off 1187 in Rendon (Burleson.Mansfield area). It's in a small metal building...nothing special. It use to be called The Ferocious It was a biker bar. The name recently changed to MacGyver's, but the look stayed the same.

Last night we decided we would give it a shot. We walked in to a dark, smoke smelling, typical "bar". After waiting at our table for more than a few minutes and not getting any service....we became a little frustrated. We decided to hang in there and still give it a shot, so Joel walked up to bar and placed our drink order and asked for menus. The bar tender brought us menus and a few minutes later we ordered our burgers. After the first initial bad impression....the bar tender was very friendly and took good care of us.

The burgers came out and looked ok....nothing too fancy, just your typical burger. Oh, and the fries with FRESH CUT...yum!

We both took our first bite and looked at each other immediately.....yes......this was a damn good burger. Oh my goodness!!! I am not sure what was so special about them.....but they were sooooo juicy and delicious! They had homemade pickles, and were on a french bread bun.

If you are ever in the area, it's a must try! They also have a nice sized back patio with a stage for live music. We will be back to check it out:-)

I've Been Doing It All Wrong!!!

This might be natural to some of you.....but not me:-)

Joel and I bought a new home:-) We are moving next week and so excited to have a home of our own to start building great memories in!!

While packing I decided I was going to use EVERYTHING in the kitchen so I don't have to move a bunch of refrigerated foods etc... We are having some strange dinners, but it's working on the fridge and pantry are almost empty...YAY! During this process I realized I have been writing my grocery list ALL WRONG.

In the past I have written a grocery list every week by writing out what we will have for dinner and then putting a list with it. Moving forward I am going to do it differently. My first list is going to be things I already have in the kitchen....THEN I will build my weekly menu off of things we already have. This way I didn't end of with tons of extra stuff that I don't use:-)

I know this might be very simple to most of you....and you probably already write your lists this way, but I am just figuring it out and and super excited to run a more efficient kitchen!
