You know me. I tend to be wordy.
I tend to go on and on telling you why I like something. Or what it means to me. Maybe I’ll feel the need to thoroughly explain every little detail in making a particular dish.
I can’t help it. It is just the way I am.
But today may be a bit different.
My brother Grant (Sip!) sent me one of his burger recipes to include in my weeklong (yearlong?) tribute the great American burger.
He is Sip! as you know, so he came up with a very cleverly named “Wine & Cheese” Burger. Which at first kinda irritated me. I mean I like to be the brother who is clever with words.
The reason it turns out this name is so clever is because it is a burger that really does pair up wine and cheese as ingredients. Red wine and blue cheese. One in a “jam” topping. The other “infused” in the meat.
He has taken his cleverness a step further and done another excellent wine pairing for this burger.
So I thought, “he went to so much trouble. The least I can do is make the damn burger”.
So, I did. I think you’ll see why I have chosen to shut up and eat! GREG
