Bump-up the 4th & the best Burgers ever

Yes, I did take these pictures with my iPhone.  I felt as if the cheesy-ness of the photos went with the complete tacky-ness of the Bumpit I have in my hair!   My friend and I decided that we had to have Bumpits in our life, so we ordered some from Hong Kong... We are totally in love with them.
Anyway, today is Independence Day! So happy 4th everyone.  Due to the tradition of bbqing, drinking beer and watching fireworks, I thought I would share my favorite burger recipe ever.  My mom and I made it up one year and are obsessed.  For those of you similar to me (or not) who don't like meat, the Portobello Mushroom Burger is the way to go! 

The mushroom burgers are wonderfully simple.  Just grill some portobello mushrooms and melt some provolone cheese on them.  Meanwhile, make your favorite Pesto and lightly grill some whole-wheat buns.  When the Mushrooms are ready, put the Pesto and some sliced, grilled Red Peppers (you can buy these at the store or do it yourself) on the bun.  VoilĂ !  I would grill some corn too, to go alongside. 

Happy 4th!

Basil & the Jardin

So many fun new things!  I started a Jardin ( French for 'garden') this year!  Soon I will have red, yellow & orange peppers, beets, beens, an assortment of herbs and lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, peas and many more yummy treats.  I am so excited because I essentially live off of fruits and vegetables and buying everything local or organic gets expensive!  I am also obsessed with basil and my old plant was looking a little weak, so I bought a new one! 
I also have an iPhone now and I am loving it.  Finally I have entered the modern world.  I found an 'app' for this crazy cool camera (a hipstamatic).  It's completely horrible (and addicting) because it makes every picture look cool even if you have no photography skills what-so-ever (i.e. Me!).
