This meal generated some discussion in our house about the nature of our project. Knowing that Kansas is a big beef producer (60% of the agricultural business is generated by beef in the state), I suggested burgers. Easy and familiar. Maia felt that was a little boring, noting that burgers wouldn't be anything new for us. She's right, burgers are a pretty standard meal around here. But, as much as this project has been about encouraging us all to try new things, I didn't see anything wrong with adding some familiar items to the mix as well.
So, on Labor Day afternoon, burgers were just fine. We thought about grilling, but Marc and I really prefer a burger cooked on flat skillet. The salt and pepper crust is delicious and the heat is easier to control. On the side, we added our favorite rosemary potatoes.
