In attendance: Ace, Moxie, Mycroft, Solids, The Count, Wasabi, and Zeus
This week Zeus and Solids hosted the movers. This was inspired by a gift that Solids received of a brand new grill. This was another experimental night with Solids at the helm, like the grilled cheese night.
This night too, was a great success.
On the menu:
Solids onion burger
The apple burger,
The blueberry burger
The popper burger
The onion ring/mozzarella stick burger
The sauerkraut burger, I think.

Unfortunately, we all forgot to take pictures.
Solids cooked up what he calls his onion burger. This burger, even though had a lot of spice added to it, was what Solids considers his standard burger. It may have been the least experimental burger but still very good. Next up was the apple burger. Solids finely chopped up an apple, granny smith (I think), and mixed it in with the raw meat. This was good but not what we wanted. Next time I think we all agree, more apples should be added or even a slice of apple in the middle of the burger. The blueberry burger was a little more successful; you could really taste the blueberry separate from the beef. It was fun, like blueberry ale. The popper burger was fun. Solids formed the patty around a precooked jalapeño popper. This cooked up really well. This will make a great green chili cheeseburger next time we make them. The onion ring/mozzarella stick burger is nothing more than future of hamburgers. Solids formed the patty around a precooked onion ring that had a precooked mozzarella sick in the middle. This was a giant burger, but really delicious. I do not know too many details of the sauerkraut burger. That was made for Ace who seemed to really enjoy it.
As a topping, Solids fried up some pepperoni, ham, and bacon. These were all fried up together and were crispy and good.
Wasabi and The Count brought a bowl of homemade Guacamole that was great. It was a fun side to the burgers. Solid cooked up a big pot of corn on the cob on the side burner of his new grill. It was really good and one of the few items Zeus could eat. Zeus had her first Jalapeño popper experience this meeting. Ace brought chips and dip that were very easy to munch on.
The wine that we drank was quite good, a white, a rosé, and a red. They were all good. There was also come Gatorade being consumed, it was red but I am not sure of the flavor.
After eating the movers went on to play a video game using bongos on the Nintendo game cube, Donkey Konga. It was fun, some movers really got into it, some were really good, and all had a good time.
