Memphis Burgers

12 03 2012

On another street adjacent to The Peabody is Kooky Canucks, famous for their burgers. Some of us went there on Sunday night. I had the burger with bacon and blue cheese — this was a BIG burger, cooked as I wanted it (medium rare); however, I was good and removed the top of the bun and almost all the fries and gave them to others at the table, which meant I just had the protein and salad veges. It was GOOD. One of the other Aussie ladies had the fried green tomatoes — like me, she’d only heard of them via the movie of the same name. I tasted them, but they didn’t hit any notes for me.

None of these animals was harmed in making the burgers!

And then there were the S’Mores…

We had four Aussies at our table and none of us had tried (or had hardly heard of) S’Mores, so we got a lesson in them! There are called S’Mores, ‘cos you can’t stop at one and want ‘some more’.

So here’s how you make them — they are basically marshmallow toasted over a flame, then placed on a Graham cracker with a piece of chocolate on it (Hershey bar in our case), then squashed down with another Graham cracker. They are VERY sweet, and I found even one quite sickly sweet — there’s no way I could’ve eaten another one. But at least I can say I tried it.

And now it's ready to eat -- BIG sugar hit!

Does this make me an official “hand model” now?
