Buffalo burger salad

Buffalo burger salad.

People have been going barbeque crazy here at my complex. The mouthwatering smells waft through my open patio doors every evening and get my stomach growling.

So, today's lunch just had to be a burger. I combined some ground bison meat with 1/2 an onion (grated), some minced sun dried tomatoes, a pinch of sage and a pinch of thyme. 

At the last second I decided to put a chunk of cheddar cheese in the middle. This turned out to be a very good idea:-)

Gooey melted cheese!
I ended up eating it topped with onion, red pepper and liberal amounts of ketchup and mustard.

I know, I know - I have been neglecting the dogs a bit lately on the cooking front - so you will be happy to hear that they got their very own teeny tiny burgers (without onion or sun dried tomato).

Doggy bison burgers.
And, as per usual, the best photo of the day was of the dog treat.

I am still working on figuring out my BMR - I found three different formulas and each of them generate wildly different numbers.

If I use one formula it says I have a BMR of 2,200 which seems way to high and if I use another formula I have a BMR of 1,400 which seems a bit more reasonable. The third end up with a BMR of 1,600 which seems a good number on days when I get a lot of exercise.

My big weight loss push for June will have to wait until I figure out the BMR mystery...

  1. I love buffalo meat, even though we do not get it very often. The rancher beside us has a beefalo- which is a genetic cross, I feel sorry for the sad looking thing, only one of his kind in the herd.
    Anyhow, the cheese was a tasty move-yum! Now I am ready for a burger, you have created a craving!
