Bison Burger & A First

Bev is back on her strict diet, which calls for 3 ½ oz of lean meat at a meal, so we went with some bison from the freezer - at least leaner than ground beef. She had hers without the bread, but I had to go the whole way for mine. It was the grilled burger topped with smoked Gouda, grilled onion and peppers, mayo, and served on a wedge of muffuletta roll.

Pretty darn good eats if I do say so myself.

Since I'm an early to bed early to rise guy, I don't often go out in the evening if a means a late night.  Knowing this, Bev bought some tickets for us to go see a play at the theather located on the University of Tennessee campus.  I can't remember the last time I went to an indoor play and I'd never seen Shakespeare, so we attended a matinee performance of "The Merry Wives Of Windsor."  With my mediocre hearing and the Olde English they were speaking, I think I missed about a quarter of the dialog, but it was still entertaining and I'd go to another one, but probably something in East Tennessee English.

Have a great day.



  1. And what exactly is East TN English? Will they say things like, "Dadgum" and "reckon" and "fixin"?

  2. LOL!! Don't feel bad, I've always had a problem understanding Shakespeare!!
    That burger looks fantastic! Love smoked Gouda!!

  3. That reminds me, I have two bison patties somewhere in the freezer. I'm the same way with some of that heavy British dialect. There have been a couple of movies where I've had Bob turn on the "sub-title" option.

  4. PAm - exactly, plus ya'll. :-)

  5. Hey Larry, Carol and I were discussing our favorite meals of all time and we both put the Saturday night meal to be at the top of the list. Thanks to you and Beverly for an enjoyable time.

  6. The burger looks delicious.

    I love going to plays but it's a bummer when you miss the dialogue.

  7. I'm always upset when they remake a Shakespeare play into a movie, "update" the setting, and use the same tired Middle English. I'd go for hearing East Tennessee English, too; can you imagine the Merry Wives of Windsor being "as happy as pigs in a poke"?

    I love me a good bison burger, too!

  8. It's tough to enjoy something when you can't make out the dialog. Too bad, but you did try :-). Bob has hearing problems, so I'm very sympathetic. I've just never been able to understand how he can't hear me but can hear game scores two rooms away. Your burgers sounds terrific as usual. I hope all is well. Have a great day.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
