Life Stories: The Story of … The Boy’s Burger

Month 6 of my Life Stories Project. Life Stories Project?  See MONTH 1  for the full story.
The gist of the project, is myself along with some other photographers are doing a monthly photo project- of our OWN children.
A project to help us document the little things we want to remember.

In our house, once a month, one of the kids is responsible for a dinner. From beginning to end, so choosing the recipe, making the shopping list, getting ingredients, all the food prepping and of course, actually COOKING the dinner.
It’s quite the process- but they LOVE it. This month, it was the oldest’s turn. He decided to create his own burger recipe. Now, his dad is notorious for making stuffed burgers. So of course, like father like son!

He calls it “The Booper Burger”
A hamburger stuffed with salami, cheese, pickles and bacon.
Grilled, then topped with raw onion, tomato, lettuce, and more of the inside toppings too.

First up- the prep:

Next up- the burger press. Yes, we own a burger press.

Now, assembling the insides! Then topped with the other 1/2 patty.

Then- heading outside (in the dark) to grill the burgers!

Can I borrow him at my house for dinner tonight? Just fly him to TX real quick. That looks quite yummy!

Those are such cute photos – I love how intense he is when he is chopping his ingredients and I love the look of pride on his face when he’s holding up the plate with his meal on it! What a great idea to have them each be responsible for a dinner each month!

I absolutely love your tradition of having the kids cook every month. How old were they when you started it? I actually was considering the same thing a few days ago when my kids get a bit older.

He’s so proud of his burger, love it!

I love that you have your kids make dinner. I think we will start something similar around here. The burgers look fabulous!
