Elegant Low-Carb Burgers

Posted on January 18, 2015 at 9:40 PM

A cast iron skillet such as this one by Le Creuset (extremely durable and worth the cost) will give your ground beef burgers a perfect finish.

Below: hot pickled peppers are placed on a cooked hamburger patty, which will be topped with Irish Ballyshannon Cheddar cheese and broiled.

The Le Creuset skillet is versatile because it can take the highest oven-temperatures, and withstands broiling.

Burgers are placed on beds of shredded lettuce and a sauce of mayonnaise with finely chopped dill pickles.

Boulder Landscaping

Posted on May 11, 2011 at 3:34 PM

Boulder lives up to its name, with nearly every local house and institution employing rocks, gravel and boulders in their gardens, together with plants and grasses. Rocks are beautiful permanent and abundant natural resources. Stones do not require water, and can look very elegant. Xeriscape is a trademark of the nearby Denver Water Department, and means gardening with the minimum of water-usage. ©M-J de Mesterton May 11th, 2011
