Burger Buns

My bread machine has really been getting a workout lately! Cooking and baking is what I do when I'm bored, and boy have I been bored these last few weeks. Sara Beth and I have fallen into somewhat of a routine and she isn't taking every moment of my attention anymore on most days. Daytime television is lame; shopping isn't much fun when you're a penny pincher like me; and it's too hot and humid to take Sara Beth outside past 9:00am. So, pretty much after our daily walk with Zilla and some Mommy and baby exercises, I'm just killing time between feeding her and changing her diaper.
Monday night, Adam and I were watching "The Best Thing I Ever Ate" on Food Network and I started craving a really good hamburger. So, what did I do Tuesday? I made homemade hamburger buns so we could have burgers for dinner. They came out so good that I thought I'd share the recipe with you. It wasn't much work at all if you have a bread machine. The burgers were juicy and delicious (Thanks to Adam for such a great job grilling them!) and were served with a green bean/mango salad and some leftover zucchini cornbread casserole. I even had Adam grill pineapple for dessert. I whipped up some heavy cream to top it all off. So yummy!

Here's a link to the recipe:
I remembered the pictures this time:

We'd all be so fat. I could cook dinner and you could make a cake for dessert every night. I wouldn't complain.

Wow it looks so professional. You should be a chef. :)

Your burgers look delish, I'm glad the bun recipe worked out. The green bean/mango salad sounds great! Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. Sounds like things are going well if you've got time for homemade burger buns:)
