Stuffed Cheeseburgers and November Funny Friday

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving and I'm sure you're ready for something besides turkey or you will be. SO...How about some good old man food? Or a fabulous burger? Or both?
I made stuffed cheeseburgers one night and they were a big hit. Simple to make and less messy than a burger with cheese dripping off of it. YES we use that much cheese!

1 lb lean ground beef
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp each: onion powder, garlic, paprika, parsley flakes, white ground pepper
Mix the meat and seasonings well. Make your patties, press the center to make a well and place about 1 TBSP of cheese in the middle, fold the burger over and flatten to a patty again. Grill! Done!
Now of course, we topped them with more cheese, mustard and bbq sauce, oh and pickle relish. Side of salad and seasoned fries.
Super simple and delicious

1. Look mom, I put the sgetti in a pot. Aren't you happy? Said 10 year old Billy.

2. Tom...the stoned high school student put the spaghetti in a pot and ran from the room screaming "IT'S alive!!"

3. Paul looked at his wife and said "what do you mean it doesn't work? When the noodles melt or cook they'll fit in" Rolling her eyes she replied "YEAH If they don't catch on fire smartie we use a gas stove!"

4. Half blitzed and cooking dinner for his wife as a surprise, Mike stood and looked at the noodles thinking how they reminded him of fireworks in the sky, or the tentacles on a jellyfish...whoa

5. Looking at the pot of noodles, Tam thought, well dang it did say EXTRA long noodles but this was crazy!

November FOTW - Buffalo Chicken Egg Roll

Hi and welcome to another edition of #FlyOnTheWall, a post where you get to "buzz" around and see/hear what's been going on. At the end of the post you'll find links to 11 other great bloggers that are participating this month. It's always a lot of fun, tons of laughs and even a few recipes thrown in here and there.
Buffalo Chicken Egg Roll
rotisserie chicken, shredded
8 oz #ChobaniGreekyogurt plain
hot wing sauce
mozzarella cheese sticks sliced in half length wise
egg roll wrappers
#madewithchobani (find more recipes made with Chobani HERE)

Dice or shred the chicken and mix well with the sauce and yogurt. Place 1-2 TBSP of the mix on top of the cheese stick on the egg roll wrapper. Wrap and cook in a hot skillet with melted butter. You could fry these or even bake if you choose to. Fix a whole batch and freeze them for an after school snack. Fry them up, cut in half and use as a party appetizer! 

We are sitting at the house and W is answering FB quizzes. He does one about "what one word describes you" so I take it. His says "charming" which I totally agree with. Mine says "successful" which I totally do not agree with. 
He says why? 
I said because I'm not. 
He replies, "no when I ask a question I need an answer not a "because". 
I said, well I have no college degree, I work a dead end job that will never lead to a promotion or more money, I can not provide for myself, I have one son going through a ton of crap right now and the list goes on. 
He said, "wrong, we have different definitions to success. I would not have chosen that word to describe you but I do agree. Look at what you've been through the last year. You've survived, you have a job, are a full time student and you have 3 sons that are well adjusted intelligent adults. I've met them all and they were homeschooled by you. You need to stop looking at what you are not and what you have accomplished. You ARE successful. Now the word I would have chosen for you is adorable."
NOW this is just one of MANY reasons I love this man!
This cartoon clipping has been on my fridge for so many years I can't even remember how long.

I'm on my way home from work and get a text... "Can I use this pan?"
I said sure for what? W replies to bake the burgers. I said "why not use my George Foreman grill?" He says "because that seems like a lot of work, Can I use this pan?" I'm like, I"ll be there in 15 minutes. He is serious, HE wants to cook AND use my pan. Okay fine, use the pan, but I'm talk texting because I'm driving. My phone did not understand "pan" obviously! See below!!

I'm parking my van and one of my co-workers walks up, I put down the window and said "hi dee ho neighbor" .
She looks at me and says "I AM NOT" 
LOL so glad to work with quick witted folks!

Hair time at Casa De Love :)
My son cutting W son's hair. So glad they get along.

Good gracious I love auto-correct! As you see, when you speak to your phone so you can text while driving. It does not always come out like it should.
I'm not the only one who 'talk text' with their phone AND the phone just doesn't get it! LOL
It should read "good timing" 
"If you could leave it in the oven a minute longer so that the crust gets crispy I like crispy crust"
HOW did the phone come up with "swagger crispy crossed"??
