Bison Burgers with Gorgonzola Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

“That’s a mouthful.” I say, biting into the delicious burger. That’s what she said, I think in the back of my mind.

There are some good things to be said about unemployment: I’ve had more time for exercise, video games, baking, cooking, household chores, you name it. With today’s technologies it doesn’t take long to apply for a dozen new jobs every morning, and as I’m an early go-getter type, I’m done my job searching by 9 AM.

That leaves me a lot of time to experiment … that’s what she said. Continue reading
