If you are a follower of my blog, you have probably heard of “picks of the month”. Basically when I started this blog, long ago, I figured I would be making lots of new stuff, and family favorites might start getting made less. So we instituted picks of the month, the 1st of the month everyone announces one thing that they want to eat in the following month. It can be anything really, dessert, meal, snack even beverage. This month my son actually grabbed a cookbook to find a “new” pick. The combination of tacos and cheeseburgers had him sold the first instant that he saw the title. A combo of his two favorite foods, he was sold. So we waited for the temperatures to heat up, and when it was minus 3 we got out the BBQ. They were a hit!
