After a lengthy phone conversation with my brother John, I finally learned how to turn on my gas grill. And of course, as with all new toys, I'm obsessed with using it often.
I also love hamburgers.
For this hamburger, I decided to improvise using what I had in the refrigerator, a jar of green olives and a small wedge of brie. I chopped both finely.
Oh, and before that......I poured myself a glass of my other new toy this summer....rose wine. Find a nice dry one, it's perfect wine for summer red meat grilling.
I formed the patties, sprinkled with coarsely ground pepper.
Then I buttered a couple of onion rolls.
That ear of corn has also been slathered with butter and sprinkled with herbs of Provence.
Cooking. Cooking. Cooking.
