I Am Salivating
My efforts toward lowering my cholesterol have really improved my diet from a health standpoint. I've also lost some weight, which is nice. But, man, I have been thinking about food more or less constantly for the last couple of months.
Tonight as I was making my oatmeal--I make a big batch on Sunday night which I can then put in the fridge and reheat for breakfast for the next several days--I was having visions of a burger. But not just any burger. This burger is going to be haunting my dreams.
Start with a nice hamburger patty, cooked to maybe just a hair below medium. Add a healthy portion of hot pastrami. Then three strips of bacon. Then throw on some Swiss cheese and let it melt a little. Now deli mustard, dill pickle slices, and shredded iceberg lettuce. I toyed with the idea of adding avocado, just to make it completely ridiculous, but I figured that wouldn't work well with the mustard.
Are you hungry? This is how I've been feeling every day for the past two months. Yeah, I know: first world problems.
Don't knock the pastrami burger until you've tried it. There were a couple of places in Claremont that had pastrami burgers (Everest and The Hat) and they were freaking awesome.
You lost me at the pastrami. The rest of it sounds good though.
