Easy Hamburger Patties

I was making hamburger patties over the weekend and decided I needed an easier method.  This is what I came up with:

I got out my tortilla press and placed saran wrap on the bottom.
I rolled the ground meat into a ball.

Next, I placed a piece of saran wrap on top of the meat.

Press the lid down gently.

Then press lightly with the handle.  
I did not force the handle down all the way.  
I just applied a little bit of pressure with it.

Now, I had to open it pick up all the saran wrap and 
flip the patty over to repeat the process one more time.  
Otherwise, the patty would have been thin on one side 
and thick on the other.

There it is, a perfectly shaped hamburger patty!

Memorial Day

I just wanted to honor the fallen on this Memorial Day.

In Loving Memory
Alvin Louis Raper
(Uncle Sonny)
Navy ~ Hospital Corpsman, Second Class Petty Officer
September 16, 1942 ~ February 15, 1968
 Gave his life while running across the battle field to assist a wounded soldier.

He was an uncle I never had the chance to meet, but I am thankful to him just the same.

THANK YOU to all those who have sacrificed their lives for freedom.

May we never forget.

Bridal Photography

I am NOT a professional photographer, but I was asked to do a dear friend of mine's bridal pictures.  I thought they turned out decent considering I don't have a clue what I am doing.  I did want to share a few of my favorites with you, so here they are:

The last one is a favorite of mine.  Which one do you like best?
