I can’t tell you how many times the Southern husband and I have gone out to a lovely restaurant for a fun-filled evening and I have spent the first 15 minutes or so agonizing over what to have. It’s not that the menu doesn’t have something that catches my fancy – it’s that it has too many things that catch my fancy. And that’s what makes these surf and turf burgers so near and dear to my heart…they let me have my cake and eat it too. Or should I say…they let me have my burger and a little succulent shrimp, too?
