oh Leslie, I'm sorry- Montreal is a McCormack Grill Mate---big bottles at Costco or small at your super market.(I really like it) It is not Pensey, sorry to cause confusion. I put that in the whole batch , then sprinkle individual penzeys on tops of each burger and pat in.

Kris, I'm working on a Penzey's order and can't find your Montreal seasoning! Is there another part to the name or is it one they're replaced with something else???

I'm hooked on Penzey's! The spices are much higher quality and have so much more flavor than the crappy grocery store stuff. I don't have the Montreal blend but am just about to place an order - I'm out of smoked paprika and *gasp* granulated garlic. I cannot run out of garlic. I will die.

Adding to my list...!

How funny, I always thought Penzey's was a local brand! Their labels are so bland.

My DMIL gets their Greek spices to make her stuffed grape leaves. In fact, she and my DH just went there a few weeks ago and brought back some killer BBQ seasoning for me to try. Mmmm!

Hmm, I could get into that idea. I buy my spices from Penzey's and they have a lot of really good blends and high quality spices.

Kris, I might! LOL I marinated the chicken thighs tonight and then went all 'meh' and didn't cook them again. I have to work for another client tomorrow night but I'll cook the stupid chicken then for sure. I kinda burned out on burgers, but now I want them again!!

Hectic last two days. Younger friend of mine who has lost some weight recently encouraged me to try to add some strength training of some sort to my treadmill routine. Will add that to my list of things to do and hope I can be consistent with it.

Have had a bit of carb creep lately and need to get the grams back down.

Have a great day everyone!

Kris, I broil in a foil-lined pan. I hate cleaning up and rolling up a ball of foil works for me... :) I do bake my bacon though!

The boss is in the office today and I am working my way through a list of junk for him. Only a few loose ends left. Client after work and then home to cook the chicken thighs I decided not to cook last night. Every time I cook chicken I wish it was burgers.

Nearly 8:30 pm over here -- day has flown by!

Got lots done, including personal errand and the daily postal run -- both on my motorbike. Gotta do it while we have sun, ya know! :)

Food's on track, and we're getting more done to set things up more efficiently for our business.

Progress is good.

Come on Friday!

I didn't cook last night so had nothing for lunch, ran to the store and grabbed a rotisserie chicken and a salad, that will make a few meals for me.

Went to the Evil Russian's last night, she just got back from a black bear hunt (unsuccessful but they get paid anyway) and is leaving again on Saturday so I might have to go there again today-

I've never baked them, I use a cast iron skillet and a grease sheild to keep the mess down. Try a bit of LC gravy on the burger with the egg!

I need to FL, haven't done it since before I left last week- I was only gone 3 days this time but I'll tell you it feels like a week!

1. Stop wasting money- Save money

2. Exercise- do something every day

3. Get organized- mise en place

4. Write a letter by hand at least once a week.

Every day this side of the sod is a good day-
not sure who said it

My animals make me happy, some people not so much- a bumper sticker

Burgers were good but I overcooked them unfortunately...will know better next time. I lined the pan with foil to help with the mess...definitely better than frying/still prefer BBQ tho. I will try one of the leftovers with an egg.
Yes, Woubbie- my itunes is going full blast. But now it's quiet- BREAK TIME

I often bake my burgers when I am eating them with fried eggs. otherwise, rare on the grill. I try to avoid frying because of the mess and smell.

Yup! Put on your dancin' shoes and Fly! My favorite tunes for a big FlyLady bash is old R&B, starting with Earth, Wind, and Fire. I like War too - Cisco Kid, All Day Music.

Work's a tiny bit more manageable today, but I'm trying to help out our poor swamped Admin today, so I better get back to it!

Have a great day, everyone!

I've fried, but not baked them. Let us know how they turn out.

Ahh, that's the secret, think of Flylady missions as a party. I need to get rid of my stinking thinking because I just tend to think of them as work.

Went to the library to work this morning, but they only had about 45 minutes' work for me instead of a couple of hours. Which was ok, because I had forgotten until I got there that I wanted to pick up a bunch of books on tape and music CDs to listen to in the car. Did that, then remembered that I need a gallon of water to fill my water bottle in the car, so went to Kroger. For a gallon of water. That cost 86 cents. I came out $31+ later... But I really scored. I must have gotten there right after they marked down the meat, because I got 4 family packs of ground beef for $1.12 per pound! And turned out that they had their house brand of diet soft drinks on sale for $1.99 for a 12 pack. I think I got 5 of those. And I remembered that my friend says that the water at her place is really horrible, so I got a bunch of extra water to drink while I'm there. And a big head of cauliflower, but that wasn't on sale or cheap or anything. It was a very successful morning, even if it wasn't what I expected it to be.

This afternoon has to be spend cleaning up the house and picking up my rental car and doing laundry, then packing this evening. I'd like to leave around 9 tomorrow morning.
