"Eating seasonally." I think the general consensus of that term is the one that foodies, hipsters, and foodie hipsters most often employ and that is using ingredients in cooking that are currently in season and therefore taste fresher. I can't disagree, but I think about that phrase in a different way also. When I say I'm eating seasonally I mean that there are certain types of food that I just associate with a time of year or a type of weather. As you can probably ascertain from my last few blog posts warmer weather to me means old school red meat hamburgers.
I don't know what it is. I think I first and foremost associate hamburgers with warmer weather due to the grilling out factor. In fact I did have some fantastic outdoor grilled burgers on St Patty's at KTP's Bar in Broadripple (sorry folks it's a private member's only establishment). The combination of brown sugar, bacon, and green onion mixed into the meat was truly a winner despite any reservations you may have about such a concoction being overly sweet. And while you may not get the chance to try those burgers there is a place in Broadripple that is making some truly badass burger creations that make for the perfect Spring/Summer lunch or dinner. That place is Boogie Burger.
Truthfully, I've been wanting to try Boogie Burger for a long time. Despite their new location being a stones throw from my friends' house where our group often hangs out I've just never made it in for a visit until now. Man was I missing out. As you walk in you are greeted a friendly face at the counter who is surrounded by a plethora of burger choices on the wall menu. I went back and forth for a bit, and settled on one of my favorite combinations, the mushroom and swiss. I also ordered a side of their garlic fries because I've heard good things and that it was kind of a signature item for them. My order was ready in short order and my buddy and I ventured out on their patio to enjoy our burgers in this wonderful Spring weather we've been having.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere.
