A Hot, Steep Learning Curve

In my learning-how-to-cook journey, I'm still learning as I go. Honestly, I'm a horrible cook, but better than I was! So, here's what I learned when cooking this meal: don't cover your burger patties while they cook. You will actually make them VERY dry. I did not know this. I was pretty sure my husband and I were going to meet our demise while eating this very dry meal, via death by choking. At least we had extra rosemary mayo to counteract some of the dryness. I commend my husband (and really am actually just astonished) for surviving through so many of my cooking experiments.
