Monday's almost over ... but not quite. *sigh*
Odds are I'm going to have to go back into the office in about 15 to 20 minutes ... so I'll try to keep this short — for now, anyway.
Since so many of your expressed interest — and hunger — over my burger plans, I thought I'd show you the end product. Now I didn't end up having these for lunch on Saturday. I just didn't feel like cooking much during most of the weekend. I ended up cooking these up late Sunday night into Monday morning. I had planned on Chinese food, but didn't want to drive that far. So — minced onions and garlic and salt and pepper mixed into the meat, grilled to medium. Toasted onion rolls, fresh local tomatoes and crispy bacon. The gunk on the bun is habañero mayonnaise and French's yellow mustard.
The price of gas on Guam went up last week. Here are the current prices. I have a feeling the price might go up again soon, as early as this week, because of how much it's gone up in the states over the past couple of weeks — not that Guam gas prices are tied to national gas prices, because they're not. Our prices are tied to the Singapore price of oil, because that's where we get our gas from.
The good news is that our Circle K's are now stocking Nathan's hot dogs! LOL ... Oh, and also, they now carry White Castle hamburgers. Now I haven't had a White Castle burger in years and years, but I'm not sure that getting the microwave version at a gas station will do the trick.
And yay! I just found out I won't have to go in after all, so I'm going to have a bowl of ice cream and watch 2-1/2 men.
Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• The "state" tree of Guam is the ifil tree (Intsia bijuga). It's an extremely dense, hard-to-work hardwood that, in the region, is considered one of the most valuable timbers in Southeast Asia. On Guam it's illegal to cut the tree down; you can only harvest fallen wood. It's used by craftsmen and woodworkers for cultural and artistic work.
