A Migraine and A Dinner by Katie

That nap I mentioned last post?  It may have lasted 4-5 hours.   After about an hour and a half I woke up with a horrible headache and decided to sleep a little longer in the hopes it would go away.   No dice.   The next time I woke up, it was only worse- almost migraine level :(.  John brought me some extra strength ibuprofen and water and finally, after another hour, I was back to myself.

And well, since I slept for the second half of the day there isn’t much to talk about- onto dinner.  The lighting in the kitchen was terrible over the stove so no “during” pictures- but 3 views of my final dinner, woo hoo ;).  Dinner making started with a small butternut squash, roasted with cinnamon and a little butter.

I popped that in a 400 degree oven and started chopping potatoes, which were tossed with olive oil, garlic powder, and rosemary.

John combined bison meat, one egg, and spices for bison burgers.  We baked them in the oven- I’ve never made burgers in the oven before, but it was easy for winter cooking.  We topped them with Irish cheddar and barbecue sauce.   Lastly, I decided to sautee spinach in just a tad bit of olive oil and two cloves of garlic rather than eat it in a salad.

Finished product with a glass of red.

We bought this wine at Corks, a great wine store where all bottles are $15 or under, they are all rated 86 or higher, and they offer great description notes to take home.  It was very good, not too dry and perfect with the burgers.
