What does a 13 year old want for his birthday .... this one wanted a trip to Burger King. He's been twice before when we go shopping in Manzanillo. We thought about it but I don't need anything in Manzanillo and a half tank of gas would make an expensive burger.
Instead we recreated the meal the best we could with a trip to Bodega Aurrera. A bag of frozen hamburger patties, 2 bags of sesame buns, a packet of sliced cheese and a bag of frozen fries. This was a first for all of us but it turned out rather well. The unremarkable meat cooked on the BBQ pretty much disappears in the toasted bun filled with lettuce, tomato, cheese, mayo and catsup. The fries in the oven on a pizza pan took longer than planned because heat was too low. Actually it was a pretty good reenactment of a BK meal except the meat could have been one step up in quality. The 13 year old was happy.
