Keeping It Simple

The primary joy of life is acceptance, approval, the sense of appreciation and companionship of our human comrades. Many men do not understand that the need for fellowship is really as deep as the need for food, and so they go through life accepting many substitutes for genuine, warm, simple.” - Joshua Loth Liebman

If one's life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements. And finally, there is an intense delight in abandoning faulty states of mind and in cultivating helpful ones in meditation.” - Dalai Lama

The organic story is larger than just the healthy benefits of clean, nutritious foods. Organic farming, whether tomatoes, grapes, cotton or flowers, helps protect our environment - it's that simple.” - Gerald Prolman

In honour of summer, I present the following for your culinary experimentation:

Inside-Out Bacon Cheeseburgers

These burgers put all the goodies on the inside, so every bite bursts with your favourite burger flavours.

Prep: 15 min
Ready In: 33 min
Serves: 4 (or 2, depending on how hungry you are!)

Ingredients :

1 lb. extra lean ground beef
3 Tbsp. KRAFT RANCHER'S CHOICE Dressing, divided
1/4 cup OSCAR MAYER Real Bacon Bits
2 KRAFT SINGLES Process Cheese Product Slices, cut into quarters
4 hamburger buns, split, lightly toasted
4 lettuce leaves
8 tomato slices


1) PREHEAT grill to medium heat. Mix meat and 2 Tbsp. of the dressing. Shape into 8 thin patties. Mix remaining 1 Tbsp. dressing and the bacon bits. Spoon about 1 Tbsp. of the bacon mixture onto centre of each of 4 of the patties; top with 2 Singles quarters and second patty. Pinch edges of patties together to seal.

It's just that they need more supervision." - Lynne Lavner*** I'm confused; curious; satisfied; realistically resigned to being a frustrated idealist; usually at peace with myself, but not always. Amazed at how little I know, and wondering how much I need to understand.
