Sadly, summer is coming to an end (who let that happen?). Which means it’s time to fill up on garden produce before all veggies come from a can or a freezer (at least that’s what happens here in Minnesota).

I am a crazy, busy person, emphasis on the busy and not the crazy, so I need to be fairly organized for things to run smoothly in my house. On my refrigerator there is a menu board and when my family sees Honey Apple Chicken they can barely wait for dinner!
Grilled burgers are a staple in the summer, but they can get a little boring. Angela’s “Backyard Blues Recipe” seemed so tasty, we just had to share. With all these fabulous new ideas, no one should ever suffer from “boring burger syndrome” again.
