My name is Lauren, and I live in the bubble. I am wife to Marshall, the biggest BYU fan in the world; and mother to Carly, our big girl, and Wes, our wild man, and Calvin, our new addition. I graduated BYU with a degree in Social Work, and I went forth to serve at LDS Family Services. I like scrapbooking and going out to eat at nice restaurants. I am fascinated by new cleaning products at the grocery store, so I have to shop in wide circles around the perimeter to avoid the temptation to buy. I love chocolate.

We made hamburgers for dinner the other night. Unfortunately, none of us knew normal sized patties shrink on the grill.

Apparently, if you want a normal sized finished product, you need hugely overestimate how much raw meat you can eat. Now I understand why they're called "quarter pounders." I used to think they were exaggerating.

You should see Glenn's bbq'd burgers. He's famous in our family for them. They're HUGE! Not many can eat more than one. (and they're cooked to perfection....none of that raw in the middle stuff)

Your posts make me laugh, it's great. I truly do hate it when the meat shrinks like that though.

Ha ha! Awesome. In my experience, you want the raw patty to be about 1 and a half times bigger than what you want to eat. And if it's leaner meat, it will shrink a lot less.
