My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Show and Tell

Kelli is hosting show and tell friday again

So, here's mine.

OK, so everyone who knows what "Sliders" are raise your hand.

Wait, I'm counting.

For the rest of us, sliders are frozen pre-formed hamburger patties. So called because (at least on Submarines) they are so greasy they "slide" off the bun. Now, I make a mean burger, secret family recipe we call "Norman burgers" after one of my deceased grandfathers. But every once in awhile (more often than not these days) I just want something quick and relatively easy that the kids like to eat. Enter our favorite brand of sliders.

It's true folks, we've tried many different brands, these are the best.
For one thing, we like the shape of the burger

Notice that only 2 can fit in my skillet at a time. These suckers are bigger than the bun, that's after they're cooked.

OK, here we are ready for fixins. Yes, they are sliders, notice the paper towels?

Now, while I'm fixing the plates, the child that I spent 3 months trying to teach to say the word "go" is calling out instructions from the living room.

"Want mustard on it! Want the RED ketchup, Momma, the RED ketchup! (when he saw me putting Worcestershire sauce on them) Want lots of pickles...and tomatoes...and RED ketchup!!! Want cheese, and RED ketchup!!"

Nevermind the fact that I've been making his hamburgers the same way for 3 years now...

He must have been looking forward to those hamburgers folks, he started saying grace before he ever reached the table.

Another successful meal. :-)

The original Slyders are White Castle hamburgers. These litte bitty guys are well-known in the Chicago area and their headquarters building is in Columbus, Ohio. My son was inducted into their Hall Of Fame last year and his story is on their website. They don't look as big as your version, but then, I guess it's true that "...everything's bigger in Texas"....
