WCB #267 - Remembering Sher

Before I start my post of Weekend Cat Blogging
I want to wish my dad a Very Happy Birthday!
Weekend Cat Blogging #267 has a Special Food Edition this weekend 
I looked through quite a few of Sher's recipes, trying to decide which one to try today. After a while I found the perfect recipe to try. My husband bought some hamburger from our local farmer's market yesterday and planned on grilling burgers for dinner. May 14, 2007 Sher had a post about Bacon Cheeseburgers with Thousand Island Dressing. She said that it is definitely worth it to make your own Thousand Island Dressing and since I never had, I made it to go on our burgers. I made it this morning so it would be ready for the burgers at dinnertime. It really does taste great and only took about 10 minutes to make. I can't wait to try it on my burger!

Thousand Island Dressing
adapted from Sher's recipe here
1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used Hellmann's Light)
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
4 drops Tabasco Sauce (I used Chipotle Tabasco Sauce)
4 drops Worcestershire Sauce
3 Tablespoons Ketchup
1 Tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 Tablespoon Cognac or Brandy
Mix all the ingredients together and spread the dressing on the hamburger buns.

Willow thinks that she might like to try some...

And here are China Cat and Willow enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon out in the screened-in porch.
