Linking Log!

Here's just a few evening amusers:

Paula Dean's The Lady's Brunch Burger

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
3 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
2 tablespoons grated onion
House Seasoning, recipe follows
2 tablespoons butter
3 eggs
6 slices bacon, cooked
3 hamburger buns
3 English muffins
6 glazed donuts

Mix the ground beef, chopped parsley and grated onion together in a large mixing bowl. Season liberally, with House Seasoning. Form 3 hamburger patties.

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.

While burgers are cooking, heat a non-stick pan, over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons butter. Crack 3 eggs into the pan. Cook until the yolks are just set and still slightly runny and remove.

Place burger patties on English muffins or buns, and if desired, on glazed donuts, as the buns. Top each burger with 2 pieces of bacon and a fried egg.

House Seasoning:
1 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1/4 cup garlic powder

Mix ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Yeah, that's right. It's a burger....with a fried egg....and bacon....ON TWO GLAZED DONUTS!!! Caecus, Rae, and I have discussed it and we all firmly believe that Paula Dean is trying to kill her fan base so that she can harvest their souls and use them as an elixir of youth. Paula Dean is a Soul Harvester. ...That actually makes her sound a lot cooler.

And now, the award for Happiest Dog Wearing an Adhesive Bra on its Butt. Direct from Cute Overload, it's...


Over at Shakesville, Mustang Bobby has up this bit about the Florida Senate debating whether or not to fine people with those charming truck testicles. The word "truckyness" is involved, I kid you not.

Ok, and you know what? Say what you will about the band, the song, the costumes, whatever, but honestly, there is no denying the ingenuity and pleasing aesthetics of the video for Red Hot Chili Pepper's "Give It Away":

Argue if you must, but I will defend my position. And it is a very strong defense.

Ok, I guess that's it. Someone ought to leave me a comment. DO IT!
