Big Mac Clones and Other Menus For This Week

Spring has sprung, and with it comes such delights as fresh strawberries, new potatoes and asparagus (although I have not yet seen fresh asparagus in the shops). Citrus fruits are in season, as are spring onions and broccoli. So many wonderful things with which to create a seasonal menu!

This week we are experimenting with something that is hardly seasonal but that should be fun: my eldest son has found an online video and recipe for making home-made Big Mac hamburgers, and I have agreed to let him give them a try. We'll have to make some substitutions -- American cheese is not available in Australian stores -- but I figure, if a kid wants to cook, then let him (or her).
