Italian Herb Cheese Burger Buns are soft, herbaceous burger buns, with the cheese baked right inside.
I think it’s safe to say that I have a thing for buns. Bacon Slayer is also a fan of buns–the bigger the better. I think that’s part of the reason that he married me…for my big buns. It’s a good thing too, because my buns seem to have grown even larger after having children. It happens. In fact, even my friends know me for my buns.
My big, soft, squishy, homemade burger buns!
What kind of buns did you think I was referring to? C’mon, people! This is a family website!
I find it only fitting Bacon Slayer is such a big fan of my buns–especially these Italian Herb and Cheese Burger Buns. See, I first served these buns to Bacon Slayer right after this photo was taken. He’d recently proposed, so we’d asked a friend to take a few engagement photos. He still had a full head of thick, black hair. I obviously thought Mom Jeans and cropped lace sweaters were fashionable. We went to a local park for some scenic shots by the water, but as soon as we saw the playground, we both took off to play on the equipment. Thankfully, our friend was flexible enough to ditch his formal shot list and managed to capture some really great candids.
After the photo shoot, we headed back to my place for my grandma’s simple pulled pork, which I had the good sense to serve on these buns. Later, while he was washing the dishes, Bacon Slayer proclaimed that if he hadn’t already asked me to marry him, my Italian Herb and Cheese Burger Buns would have definitely motivated him to propose.
I told him that if I hadn’t already agreed to marry him, I certainly would have said yes after watching him wash my dishes because I loved him even more after that kind gesture.
Oh, to be so young and in love!
We’re celebrating our 16th Wedding Anniversary today. When I look back, I giggle at how I thought that I loved that man more than I could ever possibly someone when we posed for those engagement photos. I thought the same thing on our wedding day. And again on the days that each of our boys was born. And yet again each year on our anniversary. It seems that just when I’ve thought that my heart couldn’t possibly grow in capacity to love any more, it does so exponentially.
I can thank my Bacon Slayer for that! And these Italian Herb and Cheese Buns that just confirmed his decision to propose in the first place.
