Hello loyal blog readers, Leah is gone right now so I’m doing a guest post. As a quick introduction, I’m a guy who is known around these parts as Hubby, and I have been married to the creator of this blog for ‘a while’. Last night while my wife(Wifey) was recording The Bachelor on ABC, I had the opportunity to create my own experience as The Bachelor as her and our child (Childy) were spending time with Childy’s grandparents. So let’s get to it!
For dinner, I considered eating something that Leah doesn’t like seeing as how rare this chance is, but instead I opted for one of her favorites. She’ll probably be upset that I made this without her. Sorry! I just listened to my stomach and it said it wanted a Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Digiorno Burger. It’s super easy to make, but it does take some time to properly cook all the bacon, meat, and pizzas.
The recipe calls for- 6 lbs. ground beef, 1 lb bacon, all of the cheese in your house, and 2 Digiorno pizzas.
Step 1 – Fry bacon
Step 2 – Assemble burger. Take 3 lbs ground beef and assemble a 12” wide patty. Layer the top with the bacon and all of your cheese. Then cover with the other 3 lbs of beef.
Step 3- Cook burger patty. It is very difficult to flip this burger on a grill, so I just baked it for an hour and a half.
Step 4- Bake the 2 Digiorno pizzas, follow instructions on box.
Step 5- Place burger on one of your fully cooked pizzas. Then put the other pizza (upside down) on top of your burger thus completing the masterpiece.
We usually split one of these, so since Wifey was gone I’ll have some lefties for tomorrow. There are a lot of different tweaks you can make to this recipe. Adding sausage to the beef, choosing different cheeses, or choosing DiGiorno pizzas with different fixin’s. Sometimes we add a little bit of spinach, but this time I didn’t feel like it. To make it healthier I did drain some of the extra fat from the bacon AND beef and also dabbed a napkin over the pizza to remove excess grease. Additionally I dipped it in LITE ranch dressing to cut out a few unnecessary calories.
I’m not a real big sweets guy so no chocolaty desserts, but I wanted to do something special since it was my night as The Bachelor. I considered calling up all my other bachelor buddies for a night on the town but instead decided to take it easy and polish off a 12 pack of ice cold Coors Originals while watching basketball. Coors is the Banquet Beer and their cans have a frost brew liner. When they are served super cold, you can practically taste the mountains! I must have dozed off during the games because I don’t remember who won, but I did wake up fully clothed on the couch (which was the complete opposite of what I did last Monday) at 7:30 this morning. Not only do I not remember the end of the games, but I must have had a late night snack because all of my lefties were gone!
I was pretty peeved at myself for sleeping in so late. I had planned on making S’Mores Waffles for breakfast but I didn’t have enough time so I skipped breakfast.
I felt a bit sluggish this morning so I decided it was time to take the Highway to the Health Zone. I went with a chipotle chicken and black bean quesadilla for lunch. I had to walk to the supermarket because all of my cheese was gone. Its alright though because walking counts as exercise. Exercise and healthy eating are two of the fastest cars on the Highway to the Health Zone.
Just put some diced chipotle chicken, black beans, and cheese on a tortilla and folded it into a quesadilla. Added stove heat and topped with spinach, hot salsa, and plain greek yogurt. I felt like a million dollars after I ate this. Strong enough to wrestle a bull!
Wifey won’t tell me when her and Childy will be back at home. I have a feeling they’ll be back later tonight. I think I gotta take advantage of my time left as The Bachelor and do it up big tonight. I’m talking mozzarella sticks, hot wings, bbq ribs, steaks, top shelf whiskey, the works! I miss my family a lot, but I’m also super pumped for my last big hurrah as The Bachelor!
I’m not sure if I’ll get another chance to post before Wifey takes control of her blog back. If I don’t get to write for you guys again I hope you’ve enjoyed your time here, I sure have! If you’re interested you can look for more of my writing on TripAdvisor and Amazon Product Reviews.
