Change of plans, since it's been raining all day, and I realized we're out of hamburger buns. So instead of turkey burgers, I made a shepherd's pie. Cold and rainy comfort food.

Turkey burgers and corn here tonight, maybe with baked potatoes. On the grill if it's not raining; on the stovetop smoker inside if it is.

Indeed I am. :-) Sure, why not! PM it to me. But I can't say I'll be wonderful if you need it on a deadline - I'm forced to do it so much at work that I'm much more loosey goosey in real life!
