Mega Mel Burger

Yesterday was my birthday, and it was good. Jamie and I met some riding friends, had breakfast and went shooting. Jamie shot a pistol for the first time! She was pretty good, actually.

 

Afterward, we went to Mel's Country Cafe for lunch. My buddy Owen bought me this behemoth: The Mega Mel. It is a food challenge comprised of:

 

1.5 pounds of fresh ground

1 pound of bacon

.25 pound of American cheese

lots, lots of lettuce, tomatoes, onions & pickles

 

You have 2 hours to eat it, but I was washed up after 30 minutes. I had eaten all the meat, and had turned my attention to the buns. That's when I realized that the water from the lettuce had soaked the bottom bun until it was mush. So gross.

 

Anyways, I gave it a good shot, didn't feel too bad afterward. It was quite an experience, and I don't want to do it again.

 

Thanks Owen!
