Here is a recipe to help you celebrate this special day.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Portion size: 6 burgers
1cup(250 mL) fresh bread crumbs
2/3cup(150 mL) sodium-reduced beef broth
450g medium ground beef
1/2tsp(2 mL) salt
1/4tsp(1 mL) pepper
6buns, (hamburger, pretzel or pain au lait), split and toasted
In bowl, mix bread crumbs with broth; let stand for 5 minutes. In large baking dish, add beef and sirloin; sprinkle with bread crumb mixture, salt and pepper. Mix gently just until combined and no streaks of bread crumb mixture are visible (do not overmix).
Shape into six 5- x 1/2-inch (12 x 1 cm) patties. (Make-ahead: Layer between
parchment paper in airtight container; refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)
Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into patties reads 160°F (71°C), about 8 minutes. (Alternatively, cook patties in grill pan or skillet with up to 2 tsp olive oil over medium-high heat, turning once.) Serve in buns.
Tip: Stirring the beef mixture together in a baking dish rather than a bowl allows you to evenly season the meat without handling it too much. For the most tender burgers, it’s best not to overmix.
While on my vacation we went to Galaxy Taco in La Jolla. It was awesome there.
There was a wide selection of authentic Mexican food served there. I went there on Taco Takeover Tuesday. On every Tuesday, they bring in a chef from a different restaurant. That chef does 3 different kinds of taco their own style. That week, they brought in Nancy Leon, the Owner of Chans Bistro in Tijuana, BC. She made a Chinese Braised Oxtail Taco, a Confit Duck Taco and a Grilled Curry Tofu Taco.
I got the Wood Roasted Sweet Potato Taco. It had monetary jack cheese, arugula and salsa arbol. It had the perfect balance between sweet and savoury with the ingredients. Plus, if you add some of the green hot sauce/salsa, you get a really nice kick.
Rating: 4 stars
I also got their churro. I got, to be honest with you, it was the best churro I had ever had. I was fresh and warm with a homemade chocolate dipping sauce. It was awesome.
Rating: 5 stars
Overall Rating: 4 1/2 stars.
Here is the address if you want to go there. 2259 Avenida De La Playa, La Jolla, CA 92037, United States.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9-inch pans. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing until each egg is incorporated; stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Divide batter into 3 bowls.
In the first bowl, stir in lemon zest and yellow food coloring; pour into prepared pan. In the second bowl, stir in orange zest and orange food coloring; pour into second prepared pan. In the last bowl, stir in the lime zest and green food coloring; pour into third prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of each cake layer comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
Assemble the cake: stack the layers together with the Lemon Filling in between the layers. Frost sides and top with Orange Cream Frosting. Refrigerate until serving.
On a trip to San Diego, we found an awesome restaurant by our hotel called Ty’s Burger House! Now, I ‘m not just saying this because the restaurant has my name in it. This restaurant was awesome.
I got the classic burger. The classic burger had american cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, a pickle, their house sauce and of course the beef patty and a brioche bun. The patty was very juicy and succulent and was grilled to perfection. The bun was perfectly toasted. Everything worked together really well. I think overall that Ty’s Burger House is the best burger shack I’ve ever visited. I give Ty’s Burger House 4 ½ stars out of 5.

I am sorry I didn’t post this yesterday before the Grey Cup, but I didn’t have time because, I had my own championship tackle football game. We use this recipe every time I have a big football game. I found it at Save on Foods last year before my playoff game, and we made it. It was delicious. I hope you like it.

First off I would like to say that this is not one of the posts I need to catch up on. I actually reviewed Meat and Bread yesterday. We went there for lunch. So I hope you like it and away we go!
When we first entered we were hit with a delightful aroma. We went up to a man and ordered. I got the Today’s special: Rossdown Farms Chicken Poutine Sandwich and my dad got the Pulled Beef Sandwich and the Curry Squash soup.
The Rossdown Farms Chicken Poutine Sandwich had roasted chicken, gravy, cheddar cheese curds, crispy potato slices and truffle aioli. It was $9.5.
When we ordered to the man, with a booming voice, he boomed out, “One special, and one beef!” After about a minute, we got our food. We quickly grabbed a seat, because it was so busy. I opened my box up and took my first bite. There was so much meat in the sandwich that after I was done, half of the meat was in the box, yet my sandwich was still overflowing (before I ate it all). The chicken was really juicy, the potatoes where really crispy, the cheese curds were really cheesy (of course), and the gravy in the sandwich surprisingly, didn’t make the bun soggy. It was really delicious. I give the sandwich :star: :star: star: :star: out of 5 stars.
I give the restaurant an overall rating 5 out of 5 stars. So if you are in the Downtown Vancouver area and looking for something to eat, than consider going to Meat and Bread. You’ve gotta eat there.
