My better half and I spent a 2 solid years trying to purchase a new couch. A ridiculous amount of our lives were devoted to this task, in my opinion. We each had our own criteria for the piece of furniture that would become the centerpiece of our living room for years to come. 🛋 One of us wanted beautiful and practical (ie- stain resistant🍷) - the other was more interested in napablility. 😴 You can probably guess who wanted which. 😅 Needless to say, we ended up in goldilocks scenario. Some were too soft or too light, others were too hard or too short and some just weren't conducive to napping. 😂
If you've ever worried that you and your partner are too in sync - just commit to making a furniture purchase together.🤣 Or build a house together - or tackle a room remodel, redecorate a space together or plan a wedding.😬 Really any big decisions will bring out the differences between two people. If I'm being honest, the couch shopping experience made me question how we ever came to a consensus on anything. 😅
The fact is - we're different. In our tastes in furniture is different and our tastes in food is different. I like salads and vegetables and chocolate. He loves meat and fries and ice cream. He doesn't ever complain when I serve salads for dinner but I know he secretly wishes that his salad would somehow magically turn into a burger on his plate. Sooo - I came up with a meal that I could serve my way AND his way.
A burger and a burger bowl. #winwin Oh and since our twenty something girl who lives here but isn't always around to eat a full meal with us - I served the extra basil pesto with tortilla chips for her. If you've still got leftovers, stir that delicious pesto into an omelette or use it as a sauce for your favorite pasta.
Since I'm the author of this blog - It's all about me today.😅 I'm sharing my recipe and instructions for the amazing the Chicken Burger Bowl. I'm confident that you can deduce how to make this into a burger from here. 🤣 🍔 I hope that you enjoy this - any way you like.
