Its been a whirlwind of awful events in the last month. We have coined phrases "Boston Strong", "Texas Strong", and now "Oklahoma Strong". Although our communities, cities and towns are resilient, it sucks to prove that this way! The clean up and disaster relief is going to be months and years. Although no amount of money can repay the families of these devastating events of what they truly lost, there are relief funds that are set up to try and help with clean up, rebuilding and to get people back on their feet. Sadly, there has been rumors of "fake" funds out there. I seriously cannot believe someone could have the audacity to do such a thing. So if you do donate (or buy a product that supports a fund) be sure you know where the money is going and how much. The 3 main funds for the current events are Boston: The One Fund, West Texas: The West, Texas Disaster Relief Efforts Fund, and Oklahoma: OKStrong. And of course donating blood to the Red Cross helps everywhere!
Phew, now on with a post and OF COURSE a recipe!!!! Memorial Day weekend, the kick off to Summer BBQs! At least your guaranteed protein! But sometimes its difficult to stay on track. So be strong, make good choices (celebrate being able to make a choice!) That takes me to the recipe. The Naked Burger. Basically, a burger with the fix-ins', sans bun. Yummy.
