Friday Things

Today’s pic is from my Mother’s Day lunch at Melt in Leesburg, VA.  Although I live in the city, I happily drive 1hr for their burgers and these glorious fries and onion rings.  I’m getting hungry again just looking at this pic! This week has been a very rainy one.  This kind of weather is…

Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers

I LOVE a good burger. Doesn’t matter if it’s from a food truck, diner, or 5-star restaurant. It just has to be good. Also, I’m willing to travel for food. Luckily my boyfriend supports my love of burgers because he drove me to Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers in Leesburg which was a 50-minute scenic drive away…

Homemade White Castle Burgers

I’m not sure where White Castle originated, but we had them in Detroit and Indiana (where I went to college) and I practically ate them all throughout high school and college. They were perfect tiny burgers filled with onions, and topped with a pickle. As an adult you move away from fast food, but my…
