MINI Chicken Burgers

But not quite in that order.


After craving them all week, we made up some burgers on Saturday. For something different I got some extra lean mince and made the patties from scratch, then with some (tiny) sour-dough rolls, maiche, tomatos, onion and pickle, made up a handful of mini-hamburgers for late lunch.

Today I went for a short drive to a short festive-season meet-up with some of the MINI crew – really do need to get back out on the track again soon or even start organising more regular catchups to talk all things MINI, good fun.

Afternoon spent with more trips to the hardware store to pickup a new laundry hanger to install in the… er… laundry followed by a big helping of Nellie’s famously incredible spag bol.

Also managed to finally sort out a new camera mount for the MINI a.k.a. a length of aluminium angle with a couple of holes drilled into it, though it is amazing how accurate those holes just have to be to make it work right. Gets installed between the rear seats using the headrest posts to secure it. Can’t wait to try it our next weekend.
