November 4, 2008. After a long, grueling presidential race, this historic election day is finally here! I’m sure it’s going to be an intense couple of days while we wait to hear who will be our next President of the United States of America.
BigSis and I have agreed that we won’t be discussing our political views on this blog. There are plenty of other sites where you can discuss and/or debate those issues. We’ve just decided that we don’t want to do it here.
Instead, let’s talk about food! While we are sitting around glued to CNN watching the results come in, I thought it might be fun to lighten the mood a little and try some new burger recipes. I have to admit that I haven’t yet had time to make these burgers, but I know that they’ll be great since they’re exclusive online recipes from Food Network Magazine.
In one corner, we have the John McCain Chicken Queso Burger.
This John McCain Chicken Queso Burger is right up my alley! It’s got a little chili pepper, olive oil and the zest and juice of a lemon, lime and an orange in the marinade for the chicken. You top the chicken breast with salsa and a slice of pepper jack cheese, and add a few slices of avocado. Yummy!
In the other corner, we have the Barack Obama Pizza Burger.
The Barack Obama Pizza Burger is also made with some of my favorite ingredients. The angus beef burgers are grilled, then topped with some marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and chopped basil. The garlic butter, made from an entire head of roasted garlic, butter, parsley, and vinegar is spread on the rolls and toasted on the grill.
Both of these sound fantastic!! Unfortunately, we can’t say that about both of our candidates. (Oops, that’s probably more than I should have said.)
We all know that the voting taking place today is very serious, but we can still try to have a little fun! If you happen to try either of these recipes, leave me a comment and let me know how you liked it!
