Although not my first recipe I've made with leeks, they are still a pretty new-to-me food. I am fairly certain I like them and really want to use them more. I know it sounds weird, but this soup tastes so fresh and simple and it's truly wonderful. I prefer soups like this for days where it is a little warmer. Of course, bacon is just the icing on the cake here!

We have burgers every other Friday (for the most part) and I love to try new recipes every now and then. I tend to stick to very traditional burgers because I am pretty particular with burgers. I like them seasoned with only salt and pepper and then the toppings add extra flavor. I'm not a fan of garlic or Worcestershire sauce in burgers even though I am a garlic-aholic. But I do make an exception on occasion. These yummy burgers do have Worcestershire in them, but a majority of the "oomph" in flavor comes from the caramelized onions and very very delicious garlic mayo. It does take a little bit of time to make because of the process of caramelizing the onions, however, it is all worth it in the end!

I slightly adapted the method of building the burger and sealed the caramelized onions in between two slices of cheese to keep them from sliding off the burger while eating. I also added bacon to ours...because bacon :)

I am back again for another Sunday Supper event and today's event is CITRUS RECIPES THAT WILL MAKE YOU SMILE hosted by Lisa of Jersey Girl Eats. I chose to share this lovely one pan recipe because not only does it fit the "citrus" bill, but it's also got the yummy springtime veggie, asparagus. Since spring has sprung, I had to share a spring recipe!

This lovely one pan dish has crispy, crunchy lemon garlic chicken and roasted asparagus with lemon garlic seasoning. All of it has Parmesan cheese in it. And then it's topped with a honey lemon "sauce", so-to-speak. It's so bright and lovely and I can't help but just love this recipe.

Potato chips belong on sandwiches as much as they belong on a plate next to a sandwich! This club sandwich is actually pretty quick to throw together and it has a ton of flavor. It's not just a bland plain old regular sandwich. The lemon and fresh herbs go a long way to really amp up this sandwich. You can use any kind of leafy green - it doesn't have to be lettuce. You can also switch up the fresh herbs, but I went with basil because basil is my lifeblood. Hope you all try this sandwich out...bacon, chicken, lemon, greens, and potato chips are all wonderful together.
