Best Attempt at Not Starving to Death

Sunday evening, a suitable time for feasting. If you're home with your family on Sunday, you could expect to feast on something like roast beef, potatoes, carrots, gravy, rolls, stuff like that. If you're home alone and feeling desperate, you feast like this:

Let me explain what's happening here (yes, hamburgers, duh. But there's more too it than that. . .) After church today I was thinking about White Castle, and how good grilled onion tastes with yellow mustard, and about how I had hamburger meat, buns, and a whole white onion in my fridge. So I decided to make Onion Mustard Cheeseburgers. What you do is slice up a whole white onion (yes, a whole white onion) as thin as possibly and then cook your burgers sitting on half the onions with the other half of the onions on top of the burgers. And you push down on the meat a lot, trying to get the onions to stick into it, because maybe you'll get lucky and the hamburgers will develop an oniony crust (this didn't really happen). And then you put a lot of really orange cheese on your burger. And then you decide the burgers are done, and you put them on buns with a just-right amount of yellow mustard and serve with tater tots, fry sauce, a chocolate milkshake, and, for healthiness, grapes (they didn't fit into the photo, but believe me they were there). This meal g goes quite well with a couple episodes of the Office that you've downloaded onto your computer and believe me, a couple Onion Mustard Cheeseburgers will really help you get in the mood for your Sunday nap.

Also, now that I think about it, a side of celery sticks would probably go quite well with this meal.

Don't worry. Rebecca and I made ourselves steaks tonight. Real beefy meaty meat steaks. Craving satisfied.
