Bison Burgs & A Blueberry Date Topper

You guys, these tan lines of mine are incredible. So incredible that the lifeguard at the pool the other day said something to me about them. I’m pretty sure his exact words were “those are some pretty impressive tan lines.” Thanks for pointing them out young man.  The combination looks something like this…

-sports bra tan line with high waisted bike shorts on the back
-white belly
-light tan lines from running in shorter shorts
-medium tan lines near my quad from the longer bike shorts
-it may or may not look like I still have socks on
-dark arms & chest…those are consistently in the sun so at least have that going for me if it’s really something to write home about.

Let’s just say it’s a good thing you all get to see me in regular clothes. They all hide fairly well. But if you catch me any other time don’t be shocked, don’t’ act surprised, don’t do a double take. 
Not worth your time.

For those of you who don’t care about any of that and just want to eat a blueberry date bison burger, here’s what you really came here for. I could eat these things for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s way too easy. So easy, I don’t even have measurements and so easy you won’t need them either.

Bison Burgs
2lbs ground bison
dash of salt
dash of pepper
dash of oregano

Mix all together in a medium bowl. Separate into sizes of burger preference (mini sliders vs. burger size). BBQ on your BBQ. Boom, done.

Blueberry Date Topper
2 handfuls of fresh, ripe blueberries
6-10 dates, pitted
dash of ground ginger
a squirt of water from the faucet

Place a small saucepan on medium heat. Toss all of the above into the pot, smash half of the blueberries, and let simmer. Stir occasionally until everything is soft and fairly mixed together. (it will not turn into a sauce, it should be thicker in texture). Serve atop your bison burgs!

Consider serving with some sautéed brussels or cauliflower rice. Simple. Now go squash it in minutes. Then eat it in seconds. Or savor over some period of time. We don’t care.
