Saturday's sliders.

Yeah, I know I already did a weekend recap,
but I thought you'd like to see what we did last Saturday afternoon.
Amongst other activities, we made sliders on the grill.


Doug and our friend Adam got together last Saturday morning to remove some tree stumps from our respective yards. We had three tree stumps to remove here at our house, and Adam and Samantha had four at theirs. The boys men split the cost of a stump grinder and had a busy morning doing their thing. They have looked forward to this event for weeks!


The weather was so beautiful that we cooked burgers and had a late lunch in our backyard. 


To make the burgers, I sauteed some chopped red onion, then mixed them in the ground beef along with some salt, pepper, basil, and garlic powder. We served them on some Kings Hawaiian sweet rolls that were coated with a mayo spread {used the dip recipe found here} and then toasted on the grill. A slice of cheddar cheese and Oh.My.Goodness. They were yummy!


What a lovely spring day to spend outside.


Good food.


Good friends.

Good times.

Now, over here a "slider" is a big slice of icecream sandwiched between two wafers. But either is good with me!

Any idea why they're called sliders? They look yummy whatever the reason. Did you put the mayo on the rolls first and then grill them? I've never heard of it done this way, sounds interesting!
Your weekends always look such fun - I could do with a Doug over here because we have a huge eucalyptus tree in our back yard that I keep saying needs trimmed but Jon tells me he likes it :(

Maybe they're sliders cause they're mini-burgers that just "slide" right down -- not much chewing required! Whatever the reason, they look delicious and I wish I had one right now!!! Red meat, doctor's orders! Love you! xo

It was actually copyrighted by White Castle's owner. They've always only made those mini burgers on rolls. Yours look delish ...way better than WC!
