Date Night - Burgers, Fries, and Shakes

DSC_0045DSC_0049


We learned that:
A. Soaking the thinly sliced potatoes all day is the key to crunchy fries.
B. We don't like the vanilla ice cream flavor here. We miss Freddo. A lot.

We used Bobby Flay's Blackberry Cheesecake Milkshake recipe as our inspiration. We didn't have blackberries, so used frozen raspberries instead. I made a simple syrup with the raspberries, added it to some vanilla ice cream and whirred it in the blender. It was okay...I really didn't like the vanilla flavor of the ice cream. We weren't impressed.

The burgers were amazing though.

So was the company.

Your burger looks amazing. I'm surprised Brian paused long enough to let you take a picture.

Maybe you'll need to start making your own ice cream next!
