Who knew there was such a day???

http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/09/18/national-cheeseburger-day/?hpt=hp_c2

September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day.

Ah the cheeseburger. It's as American as, well, American cheese. But that’s as far as the patty’s origin gets narrowed down. Various eating establishments (mostly in California) claim to have invented the cheeseburger. The Pasadena Sun did due diligence in investigating the burger’s background and while it heavily leans toward one over the other, it’s left undecided.

The front runner for the American classic is “The Rite Spot” in Pasadena, California. Legend has it, one of the cooks there, Lionel Clark Stenberger, slapped a piece of cheese on his burger and the rest was history. The year was around 1924, but could have been more like 1927. Backing up this assertion, the other main family laying claim to cheeseburger’s fame reportedly worked at the Rite Spot before going out on their own.

There was a national cheeseburger day and I MISSED IT!?!?!

It's a good thing I didn't miss celebrating international Bacon day, which is observed in June in Canada, and out of respect for my American friends I chose to participate again in September ;)

p.s. Astrid, you really are missing out. Flamebroiled, juicy succulent meat, topped with cheese, pickles and having an underside of just the right pairing of mustard and ketchup all wrapped up in a sesame seed bun. *::o*

OK more on burgers - why you ask? Because they taste GREAT!!!

127737=7136-Burgers20120918.jpg Five Guys voted favorite burger chain, McDonald's near bottom - http://www.latimes.com/business/money/la-fi-mo-five-guys-burger-mcdonalds-20120918,0,2348963.story

Market Force Information questioned 7' date='600 consumers, calculated the fan favorite based on total votes and then factored in the number of locations for each chain. In every region, Five Guys led the list. Overall, In-N-Out was second, followed by Fuddruckers, A&W and Smashburger. Dairy Queen ranked last in the group of 16 chains considered. Burger King, Hardee’s, McDonald’s and Jack in the Box rounded out the bottom five. Five Guys ranked best in categories including food quality and taste, service, cleanliness and atmosphere. The only category in which it failed to rank No. 1 was best overall value; In-N-Out won that category. Smashburger, a newcomer in the so-called better burger industry, ranked second in every category except overall value. [/quote'] GO SMASHBURGER!!!!
