Not only does a love of food bring endless joy through the cooking and eating experiences that come each day, it can also lead to a heart attack. Cheerful, yes, but if you’re greedy and prone to smothering things in butter, sugar, oil and more butter, then you have to be realistic about these things. Sadly, I am a man of excesses when it comes to food. I don’t smoke, so I’ve bought myself an extra few years. I drink rarely and usually in moderation. It’s my need to eat large amounts of things that I love that I suspect will be my undoing.
I love eating different things and trying new dishes. However, I can’t resist a good burger. When I choose to have a burger, I make a real effort to make it interesting. My view is in for a penny, in for a pound. Yesterday was no different. I whacked a burger in the frying pan, threw in some back bacon, and added some sliced onion rings too. When the burger was cooked and the bacon crispy, I began piling everything onto a toasted cheese-topped bun. Below is a list of how it all stacked up (top to bottom).

No revelations here, but man, it was a real treat. Le Roule and bacon burgers rule.
