Commensurate with the start of the football season and excess sodium consumption, my ear has started ringing. It's not too bad right now, but noticeable. It started about a week ago when we went out to dinner with LL's parents at Cheddar's (a chain like Chilis or Applebees). Instead of doing something smart like getting a steak or something in which it's really hard to secretly add sodium, I got a pasta dish with sausage and some sauce. It was good, don't get me wrong, just loaded with sodium. So I have no one to blame but myself. The tailgate food, while usually not HIGH in sodium, is not LOW in sodium either. Well, maybe it is high, but I can put up with some ear ringing for my fun and tasty tailgates!!

When the weather is nice (meaning relative warm) on Bear's Sundays, I (or LL in the case of last weekend) make guacamole. You can't really have "dipping" dishes when it's cold and everyone has gloves on for obvious reasons. So we make guacamole and it's delicious. We also make WAY too much of it, but you just never know right? Neither of us are people who would just throw things away, so now we have this leftover guac and needed a use. The answer: guacamole burger Mondays. It's as simple as it sounds: you cook a burger and dump a bunch of guac on it. Outstanding! We've only had them two weeks in a row, but they are delicious. I fear we'll miss them next week when the Bears play out of town.
