Here we can order a burger "with everything on it". In Australia you would order a burger "with the lot". The lot is burger, lettuce, tomato, onions, cheese, mayo, pickles, pineapple, fried egg, and a bit of vegamite. A large mouth is required to consume it. Cher, do you have something like that in the UK?
I don't know lol
Those are not the sort of places I frequent.
I would be surprised if we didn't. If there is one american culture we do well, it is McDonalds and the like.
That looks like two meals on a bun.
Actually, we don't call them buns here, except in american type places, we call them rolls, or baps, or batches, or even cobs.
i say bread bun, but this will be a never ending debate i think. t depends on the type of bread bun it is, for a burger i say bread bun, but if its for a sandwich i call it a bread cake, i know people who call them tea cakes, but i always think of fruit tea cakes when someone says that
When life hands you lemons, make grape juice then sit back and watch as the world wonders how you did it.
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait ‘til tomorrow For babies grow up we've learnt to our sorrow, So quiet down cobwebs Dust go to sleep I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep
Yesterday I've made one of my favorite salads, which was forgotten for about a year, don't know why... Anyway I put there: lots of fresh carrots, 3 big ones 30 grams of dried apricots, sliced 30 grams of raisins few cut walnuts 3 tablespoons of sour cream 3 cloves of garlic some salt
It's really healthy and very tasty as for me. We ate it with steamed fish, but it tastes the best with smashed potatoes or with some meat.
Heres a new one for you the Dutch call it hot lightning its cheap and very tasty. Great for a winter meal..
Ingredients for 4 people
1½ kg potatoes 1½ kg sour apples 500 gr minced beef 300 gr onion 250 gr sugar (you can reduce this if you dont have a sweet tooth) Oil or butter 1 tl cinnamon Salt and pepper to taste Nutmeg if desired Method
Put a pan with 1,5 ltr water on a medium heat Peel the potatoes and cut them into blocks Be sure that the potatoes are just covered by the water. They should take about 10-15 minutes to cook In the meantime peel and core the apples cut them into blocks and put them in a large pan with about 5cm of water they don’t need to be covered. Make sure the pan is large enough to add the other ingredients to later. Let the apples cook making sure they don’t burn until they are reduced to a thick applesauce. Chop the onion and gently fry this until its clear and glassy in a little oil or butter. Add the miced beef and let it brown in the pan
Mash the now cooked potatoes and add them to the apple sauce stir in the cooked minced beef and onion and then add the sugar , do this little by little the amount mentioned above is an indication only and really depends on two things A/ your own taste and B/ how sour your apples are.
The hot lightning should be soft and creamy in texture . Add the cinnamon and netmeg if desired plus the salt and pepper to taste give the whole mix a good stir and its ready to serve. Take care, because its not called hete bliksem for nothing, the dish holds its heat and a burnt mouth can make you want to swear!

Today I've made pumpkin cream-soup, we like it a lot in our family and I often cook it in autumn as it's very healthy and easy to make.
All you need are:
1 onion 2 big potatoes 800-900 gr of pumpkin 30 gr of butter
At first you should melt the butter in a pot, then put there chopped onion and stir. In about few minutes add chopped potatoes and pumpkin, pour the water to cover all the vegetables and be above them for few cm. Pumpkin usually cooks fast, so when potato is ready turn off your cooker and leave the soup for about 30-40 minutes and then blend it to make a cream soup.

Our current go-to cheap meal is something aloo tikki chole chaat - an Indian dish made with a potato latke on the bottom (we make a big batch and freeze them), a generous ladle of chick-pea curry - we make ours in large batches and put it up in jars - a dollop of labneh (pressed yoghurt), and drizzle of tamarind sauce (which we also make in bulk and put in smaller jars). Cost is probably about $2/serving, and even dedicated carnivores like my son love it. Since we do the main pieces in batches, it's a great easy healthy but yummy meal for a weeknight. Just had it tonight in fact.

I've remembered of one of my favorite teas, which is not the meal of course, but actually very healthy!
I put about 10 gr ginger, not the dried one, the one you have to peel and cut into pieces. Few flowers of hibiscus and a piece of cinnamon stick.
It should stay for some time and then I drink it with a tea spoon of honey. It's really tasty + ginger is fastens your metabolism and is very health especially in winter as it contains lots of vitamins and amino acids.

Just tried new cream-soup this Sunday. This time from mushrooms (I took button mushrooms, or champignons).
So, for 2 big bowls you need:
300gr of champignons 2 small potatoes 1 table spoon or about 15-20 gr of olive oil 1 big onion 1 cup of milk 0.5 cup of water
At first we put olive oil into the deep stewing pan or just a saucepan with a thick bottom and cook onion on it, stirring all the time, when it gets soft, add chopped mushrooms and keep stirring, in few minutes add potato, milk and water to cover vegetables. Cook it for about 15 minutes, making sure potatoes is ready, then smash with the blender. I contains about 60-70 calories in 100 gr depending on how much olive oil did you put at the beginning and is very tasty as for me.
