Burger and Fries.
Elk burger with applewood smoked cheddar, organic beefsteak tomato, baby arugula, carmelized red onion, Kozlik's sweet and smokey mustard, and possibly some homemade aioli, I'm thinking garlic. Haven't decided on the bun yet, but it should be fresh. I was thinking onion earlier, but I think that might be too much. Something plain, maybe whole-grain?
And a repeat of the baked sweet potato fries from last night. Maybe the same spices, or maybe something a bit hotter. Hmmm... dill might be an interesting complement.
Burgers and fries call for beer to be drunk with them. Look at the right sidebar for the available selection. I'm leaning towards Blanche de Chambly. Then again, even though it doesn't work at all with the meal, there's a bottle of gewurztraminer in my fridge calling out to me... or any number of the reds on hand. Tough call, but I think the beer has to win this one.
Dessert is undecided. I don't have the time tonight to make ice cream, but my dulce de leche or mint chocolate chunk would be nice. Or I wish I had time to make a raspberry mousse. Since these aren't viable options, it will likely be some sort of bought ice cream and the fruit I have available.
Oh, and I'll probably throw together some mint lemonade while making dinner. It'd be great this weekend.
