Ultimate Bacon Burger

Inspiration for this post came from watching a program on television that was all about bacon.  Who doesn't love bacon?  Nobody I know.  I love a good bacon burger but do you use thick bacon, thin bacon, crispy or not crispy bacon?  Don't you dislike biting into the burger and pulling the bacon out of the burger?  Ugh!  I felt like one of those lame infomercials - "there has to be a better way".   The program featured a burger joint called Slater's 50/50 Burgers which if you can't figure out is 50% hamburger and 50% bacon.  That was when the lighbulb turned on over my head.  The concept sounded amazing but I thought the ratio was wrong.  I figured a 1/3 bacon to hamburger would be ideal. Here is how I made my Ultimate Bacon Burger

Why do people not make Iced Tea from scratch?

I have been drinking iced tea since I was knee high to a grasshopper.  I grew up drinking this and drink tea everyday iced or hot.  I don't care much for soda or fruit juices, but I will on occasion have a glass or two.  It does puzzle me how people do not know how or did not know that you could make iced tea with tea bags.  There are even the people who think that you can only make it during the summer making "sun tea" not knowing you can make it all year long.  No, you do not buy the instant tea powder (phew-phew), don't care for that at all!!!!!  That is why I am always hesitant to ordering iced tea in restaurants because I know that is what they are going to serve me.  And, I don't like it overly sweetened.
