Four Ways You’re Grilling Burgers Wrong

September 3rd, 2015    Posted in Offbeat News

grillingLabor Day weekend is coming up, so here’s a list that might help you on the grill. It’s four ways you might be cooking burgers wrong . . .

1. Don’t use burgers with too much fat. Ground beef with a higher percentage of fat is usually cheaper. That’s okay if you’re cooking burgers on the stove, but when fat drips on the grill, you get flare-ups. And you might burn the outside of the burgers while they’re still raw inside.

2. Don’t season them too soon. Putting salt on ground beef draws out the moisture, so you end up with dry burgers. Especially if you use too much, or do it too soon. So don’t season the meat until RIGHT before you put it on the grill.

3. Don’t cut into them to see how well they’re done. If you need to get a general idea of how well they’re cooked, do it with ONE of them. But then YOU should eat that burger, because it’ll be drier than the rest of them are.

If you need to cut into more than one burger to make sure they’re not raw . . . someone else should probably be working the grill.

4. Don’t let the buns get soggy. It happens if you make a bunch of burgers at the same time, and immediately put them on buns for people. If you want to do it that way, the trick is to put the slice of cheese UNDER the burger, so it protects the bun from all the juices.

Six Work-Related Dreams and What They Mean

September 2nd, 2015    Posted in Uncategorized

dreamHere are six common dreams people have about their jobs, and what they usually mean, according to experts.

1. Sleeping with a co-worker you’re not attracted to. It doesn’t mean you’re attracted to them subconsciously. It usually means there’s some aspect of their personality that you wish you had.

2. Just being at the office. Meaning your entire dream is you working. That one’s actually pretty straightforward. It just means you’re stressed out about your job.

3. Showing up to work naked. It means you’re worried that your boss or one of your co-workers will find out about something that you don’t want them to know.

4. Dreaming that you killed your boss. It usually means you’re frustrated, because you feel like they control you, and you can’t do anything about it.

5. Dreaming that you’re running late for work. It usually has something to do with feeling like you’re not living up to expectations, whether they’re your boss’s or your own.

6. Getting fired. It means you’re anxious about something, and it’s your way of subconsciously preparing yourself in case you DO get fired.
