Get the grill out and wear your white pants one last time

Labor Day weekend........

Ok this is just HUGE, I wouldn't eat
this but had to show it's massiveness:)
I love long weekends and I love paid holidays!! Not going to lie I look forward to having a long weekend where I have one extra do to do whatever it is I want! No big plans but still, I will get one extra day to be at home, work with Miley, help my mom sell fall mums at a farm market and get the grill out one last cookout! However September is still grilling season, but it starts to get cold and darker earlier. So what will your family be cooking up? Labor Day means having an extra day to test my cooking skills on the parentals. At work I receieved a '101 things to do with ground beef' cookbook. Ground beef is the most versatile products, packed with the essential daily vitamins and minerals; especially high protein, iron and vitamin B12. Here's one I wanted to share in case you're looking for more then just an average burger. I hope you love guacamole....
Guacamole Burgers
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 egg beaten
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 container (12 ounces) guacamole (I hope to learn to make my own someday)
4 burger buns
In a bowl, combine ground beef, egg, salt, and pepper. Shape meat mixture into 8 thin patties. Spoon a heaping tablespoon of guacamole on center of 4 patties. Top with remaining patties, and seal edges. Grill until meat temperature reaches 165 degees. Serve on buns with your extra favorite toppings. I envision shredded taco cheese, sour cream and salsa as an excellent compliament to this burgaliciousness!
For more grilling recipes that features beef I ecourage you to check out the newly launch Certified Hereford Beef facebook page. CHB is dedicated to educating consumers on the cuts of beef available at the meat counter, proper cooking & handling techniques and providing their customers with practical recipes to whip up for families with hectic school schedules (it's also back to school season!)
Lastly, I'm sure all you fashion police caught my white pants line....As you know it's a "fashion rule" that white pants are only allowed to be worn from Memorial Day to Labor Day. So I will be having one last outing with the white capris to Sunday mass and then packing away till May 2012.
