The treat about spending more time in the back yard bbqing is that John & I get to see more of the CUTE kids next door. There are two families (the mothers are sisters) living in a duplex, and there are six kids, ages 4 to 15, who have been a lot of fun to watch grow up these past several years. I think the biggest plus is that they are extremely well mannered and seem to actually enjoy a little chit chat from the crazy curly-haired lady (that’s me).
The island salsa on this burger is as unique as it is delicious. Truly, it makes the burger SING! To match that wondrous flavor you really need an awesome side. I cube up some papaya and top it with a lot of grated lime zest and a good dousing of lime juice. Simple, quick and, indeed, SPECTACULAR!
