beans and hazelnuts

no picture of dinner today, but rather lunch.

a nice crisp bean salad.

walnut oil, a tad of white balsamic, hazelnuts, salt.

dinner was inspired by:
**the summer impression of the day (which i couldn't really grasp as i was in the office, in my car, in the studio, in a room on the second floor at home... ),
**gourmet magazine
**rachelle eats food blog - burgers. and as she said: you've seen a burger, you've seen them all. no need for a picture.

we tried though, some tricks from gourmet:
a small indent made with a spoon in the middle of the patty - makes it even as it cooks. no rounded patty.
i kept it simpler than usual with an addition of only 4 ingredients in the patty, simple was good.
chives, egg yolk, siracha, dijon. oh, and a surprise middle of jalapenos and havarti.
(hmmm, and bacon, cream cheese, onion, lettuce, more havarti, pickles... hey, i got a flat on my bike and had to walk for long - i was hungry!!!)
