Change Up Your Cheeseburger!

Hey, everyone!

One thing you should all know about me…. I love cheeseburgers. I really do. Especially in the summer when grilling is the thing to do!

Change up your cheeseburger

Although I do enjoy a standard, classic burger, I occasionally like to change it up. Switch some things around. Add some interesting flavors. Today I’m not really posting an actually recipe… more like a few suggestions and ideas for you all so you can get inspired and come up with your very own cheeseburger flavors!
The burgers I made for this post are kind of a smokey BBQ flavor. Yeah.

BURGER_MIX

I always start with 1lb of ground beef (or sirloin if you’re feeling fancy). I then mix in the other ingredients. Today it was some minced onion, BBQ sauce, Worcester sauce, salt & pepper, and a bit of garlic powder. Sometimes I add some shredded cheese. Sometimes I add various veggies. Spices. You can do ANYTHING!

BURGERS_FORM
After all your ingredients are mixed into the beef, it’s time to form the patties. That’s pretty easy. Then it’s time to grill!

BURGERS_TOPPINGS
Once off the grill, choose some toppings! I added pepper-jack cheese, guacamole, spicy brown mustard, and lettuce. I’m odd I suppose, but it was super good!

I’d be pretty stoked to hear about any great flavor combinations you guys come up with! Happy grilling!

Crochet and Denim

Hello, Hello!

I have a new upcycle today! I’m pretty excited about this one! Mostly because it was a lot of work…but also because I’m really pleased with the results!

I had been on the prowl for a denim shirt in the thrift stores for some time now. I had the idea for this upcycle and so finding the perfect candidate was important. I finally found one I considered worthy a few weeks ago!

Before:

For this upcycle, I cut out the back of the shirt and used the cut out part as a template to crochet a design. I really wanted it to be somewhat lacy. After I had the crochet part done, I sewed it in the place where the back had been cut out. Done.

After:

I’m really happy with the pattern I chose to go with! I like how its both a bit geometric and lacy! I also am a huge fan of the combination of denim and crochet! I did an upcycle for crochet shorts over the summer and they were a huge hit!

What do you think of the denim/crochet combination? Love? Hate? I’d like to know your opinion!
