For my variation, I make floor beef in a skillet and season the heck out of it with salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, and garlic powder. Subsequent, I serve it up with romaine, tomatoes, purple onion, sliced pickles, avocado, and ketchup and mustard on prime. SO so good.
It’s additionally straightforward to serve for the kiddos as a result of I simply put the meat on a brioche bun with cheese and ketchup, pickles on the facet, and make them salads to go along with it.
Went on one other walk-run this week (simply three miles) and it felt AMAZING. I even awakened early (early = 7:15 lol) to do it.
