Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Creamed Tomato Burgers

In my quest to make the best of my fresh off the vine first born tomato, a BLT came to mind, but here I am baconless in a Muslim country. What's a BLT minus the B? (No Googling needed, Shea!) Somehow, the sound of an LT just didn't excite me. Plan B: Hamburgers. Thank goodness they're not really made with HAM. As I was getting all my trimmings ready, I realized I had no buns or anything remotely usable so I made a quick run to Riviera's always at the ready grocery store. Bingo, I spotted an eight pack of buns right off the bat, but then saw the individually wrapped buns. How cool is that? I didn't need eight, so why not buy just two? I checked out with my QR2 purchase and whistled all the way home. Now to put my masterpiece together. I carefully sliced my prized possession and then moved on to slice the bun, only to find cream filling inside. Ok, so I had been warned. It said Cream Bun on the plastic wrap, but I thought to myself, this is Doha, there's not really cream inside. I mean, they just looked like hamburger buns. With no one looking, a quick scrape of the knife and voila, creamless buns. Long story short, the hamburgers were delish. I don't know if to attribute it to our garden ripe tomato or the cream buns. Hmm, maybe we'll try honey buns next.

  1. I just got out of a two hour presentation of a new web application I wrote for requesting medical leaves. Very draining to say the least. I opened up your blog and it put a smile on my face. I just love reading your every day antics, even if it is just about hamburgers. By the way, the tomatoes look good!

  2. Awww...thanks, Lucy! That gives me what I need to trudge on. Lately I've been at a loss of ideas and creativeness on my blog. Sometimes I feel like I've beat the horse to death!


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
