COOKING w/ MIKE: My own pre Turkey Dinner!

Well I recently got a new cookbook so I can try to eat a little better instead of eating out every meal. I really am not that great of a cook I dont think so I decided to make the easiest thing on the menu....TURKEY BURGERS!!!

Let the preparation begin in my GHETTO kitchen!!! I went and bought and the basic things that I have never had in my kitchen spices, olive oil, parsley(which I had know idea how to cut...thanks Taylor for clearing that up), mixing bowl, a good pan, some new blinds, and a SLAVE MIDGET to help in case I ever got discouraged along the way so he could motivate me.
Mixing the groud meat in my new mixing bowl....I was pretty stoked ha ha Doesnt that look tasty?!Rolling the meat into Turkey patties was the best part. I used to love helping Mom make meatloaf or hamburger patties cause the meat feels sooo cool in your hands!!!Than I threw it on my new pan with my new spatula. I tried to go to Spatula City but I heard they closed down due to the economy. I was pretty excited to be cooking so I had to get all the stuff I would be needing for my next cooking days. Nothing like sitting down in the Lazy Boy with a Turkey Burger and Pringles(yes I know they aren't healthy but who cares) on pre thanksgiving. I was giving the POOR turkey face knowing it was about to get demolished!!The FINAL PRODUCT.....a chubby happy Mike after eating my Turkey Burger. Well this wasnt that exciting of a post but this was one of the highlights of my week....making my own food. Ill try and make them a little more exciting.

Grilling at Matt's

So my buddy Matt Golightly finally got into a new house and we go there every Sunday to grill something new and watch a little football. This Sunday we did Ribs, Hot Dogs and Rice a Roni....hahaha yes we made Rice with our Hot Dogs...random mix I know. The best part is that Robby insisted on getting this Mustard that he said would be the BEST!!! So we decided to hide it from him.....LET ME KNOW IF YOU CAN SEE IT IN THE PICTURE......I told him that his Mustard was in every picture I was taking..... Do you see it yet?!?!?!?!.............................hint....look upNow you have to see it............. It was in the light fixture the whole time and he kept searching for it. I tried to make it obvious for him on this picture but he was a little slow...hahaha
And there are the grill masters at work.
Until our next grilling adventure!!!!!

Blue Man with the folks

Well for Dad's Birthday Mom wanted to do something a little different. So she called up Venetian to get some tickets to Blue and found out that they were 2 for 1 so Mom invite Julie and I. This is the second date Julie and I have been and I think it is starting to get kind of serious. Last week I got a few tickets to Phantom of the Opera at Venetian from a client and brought Julie with was kind of a sleeper, but the BLUE Man Group was AWESOME!!! At the very end of the show they have this paper that gets thrown at you from the back and you have to pull it all over your head until it gets to the front and this is how Mom was reacting to stuff. The best I could do with a camera phone.

Sunset Park adventure!!!

After much thought I decided to start doing my blog again and trying to make Sundays my blog day to get everyone caught up on my EXCITING life....haha On one of my days off my buddy Matt Golightly and I decided to head to Sunset park with about 6 loaves of bread to see what the day had in store for us.
After a little bread was thrown one guy decided to come join us. He thought he was the only smart one.............
....but soon all his friends caught on and decided to become our best friends.
I had to scare some of them away because they started become too friendly and werent scared at all.
So we decided to see if they would crawl up on us and take some of the bread but they chickened out for some reason!!
These 2 punks decided to come steal all of our ducks and pigeons and they were a little smarter than us because they decided to bring popcorn. Since they decided to steal all of our birds we decided that we do a little something to make the birds not like them..... seemed to work a little bit.
Well until my next adventure!!!! Maybe this week Ill go feed mountain lions up at Red Rock!!!
