Sunday Selections #521

Long, long ago, in days of yore...Kim of Frog ponds Rock, (who no longer blogs), dreamed up a meme called Sunday Selections. 

A place where those who were willing could put up photos they wanted to share, new, old, good, bad or indifferent, any photos you please. 

Nothing rude or vulgar though.

The meme is now continued by Elephant's Child and I occasionally join in as do a few others. Drop in to Elephant's Child and have a look.

Today's selection is quite long, so perhaps get a cup of tea before you begin. 
The star of the day is Meg:


Hello, do you like my hanky apron? Mum said she will make me a proper one when she gets some material. Today I'm helping mum make dinner, we're having burgers, yum


We start with a giant mixing bowl


and lots of ingredients


first we mash up the mince to soften it a bit


then we give a little bit to Lola


mum beats up the eggs and I put in a nice big spoonful of minced garlic


then a big spoonful of dried parsley, parsley is very important, it is high in iron so we don't get anemic, mum puts it in almost everything, but not in cakes or rice pudding

 
and lots of freshly ground black pepper


we set the egg mixture aside and mum added tomato sauce and worcestershire sauce to the mince and mashed it all in, she says it makes a nice flavour


then the egg mixture goes in


and the egg bowl gets rinsed right away, because dried egg is hard to wash off


all the egg is mixed in and the mixture is nice and sloppy

 
so in goes the dried stuffing mix, from a packet of course, mum says stuffing mix adds more flavour than plain breadcrumbs


this is harder to mix in, I think I'll let mum finish it


now comes the messy part, mum has to roll the mixture into balls and try to get them evenly sized


all done! the tiny one is MY burger


most of them now get flattened and separated with baking paper and put into lunch boxes for the freezer


 I got to put the labels on


we had to put them on the top shelf because the freezer baskets are full, I see pizzas in there 😀


now it's time to wash up the mess we made


I love all the bright shiny bubbles


Mum let me have some bubbles to play with


I'm drying my hands on a towel from mum's friend Joanne. Did you know Joanne makes these towels HERSELF? She is a weaver and has her own loom


at last it's dinnertime!


mum even let me have some onion


that was very delicious


for dessert mum diced up two fresh peaches, I love these,


but I've had enough, I'll leave these last pieces for mum.

    1. Arkansas Patti; I think you can manage, it's very easy to et everything mixed when a potato masher is used. Meg says "Good Luck"

  5. Now i feel like some rissoles! It's a while since I've made some. I might just have to rectify that!

    I hope you have an equally fun week ahead, River...take good care. Cuddles to the lovely Lady Lola. :)

    1. Lee; I hope you make some rissoles, I don't know anyone who calls them that these days, it's all burgers now, even my chicken patties get called chicken burgers. This coming week is much cooler, thank goodness. Lola is hiding under the bed, it's her favourite sleeping place now.

  9. Meg is very agile, but I was worried about her reaching for the bubbles. I'm sure you supervised her appropriately. Good to see that she got to have onion on her burger.

    1. Val; the edge if the sink is fairly flat so Meg was able to balance quite well. She loves onions.

  14. That's a great idea, using stuffing mix instead of bread crumbs. Someday i will have to try that.

    I just wanted to let you know that the woolly boots that Racer was wearing are a pair of failed bear's feet from when I went through a bear knitting phase. If you email me your address I will attempt to make you some and send them. It may take a while but I would like to make Meg sock/boots!
