Grant that's damned ridiculous...
I'll take two!

Totally - so good though! I can only hope to have the time and patience to do that more frequently at some point ...

The bacon, the little bit of bleu with beef (new to me, since I don't like bleu cheese in salad or anywhere I'd had it previously), and that burger vinaigrette ... totally keeper-ville!

I don't think the beef blend made all that much of a difference over a high-quality ground, and I couldn't find the Andouille in the end product ...

The sweetness and the Smokin' Banshee powder were def THP-worthy ...

Had I made a beignet bun, I had the idea to make a powder-laced powdered sugar sprinkle for the beignet bun ... which I don't think I've seen before around here?

Not to my knowledge, anyways ...

I really don't feel like writing up the text for the final post, at all ... at all, at all ...

Cheers! :cheers:

While taking pics of the burger, I almost tipped the cutting board with it over onto the floor ...

I laughed out loud, a bit maniacally after my reflexes saved the day. Credit to autopilot, I was concentrating on the phone's screen ...
My daughter almost knocked over my tripod then minutes later my plate almost slipped off the surface I was shooting on :) Life is tripped
