Last night I did something a little different for me, dinner wise.

See, when I was married, my husband was VERY particular about "dinner". No pot pies, no hot dogs, no fish sticks, pretty much nothing I didn't make from "scratch". Always had to have a dessert and some yummy kind of bread product.

And never, under any circumstances fix or serve hamburgers. In his mind, those are for "fast food" and not allowed on the Dinner Table.

So....up until the Bad Example Family Reunion at my place in Florida 2 1/2 years ago, I never made hamburgers. Had no clue.

And, so you know, haven't made them since. Well, I guess now I should say HADN'T made them since.

I had some burger in the fridge and decided I would give it a whirl. Holy Cow. They turned out great. I did 'em on the Foreman Grill so I didn't even feel guilty!

Pair that with the sweet corn I bought from the stand in my front yard and....Yowza!!

What the hell have I been missing?!?!?!?!

Oh, and the corn is soooo good, I bought 10 dozen ears to blanch and freeze this weekend.

Yummmm really good sweet corn all year round. How great is that?!?!

Next on my list? Freezer jam. Strawberry, raspberry and hot pepper.

I may need another freezer the way I'm goin'.

But man....all these years.......and I'd never made a hamburger. That's just several shades of wrong.

I still have jellies for you- you may find a care package at your front door one day.

Good for you! I have to have a burger every 6 months or so... just start craving it. Weird.

You'll have to post the directions for freezer jam... I'm not familiar...

Strawberry freezer jam is great. I make it every year. The best part about it is you don't have to cook it.

Freezing corn, do you mean the whole ear of corn or do you cut it off the ear?

If you leave it on, post the how to cause we have a mean corn on the cob stand near us and would love to freeze some of those bad boys for the winter.

Mmm, homemade burgers. Make sure you throw in Worcestershire and Liquid Smoke. Yum.
