Shake Shack-style Burger

*shake shack-style burger

i've been a lot of bark, little bite lately about hot yoga. {enter one of those inspirational big dog quotes here}. i did it once in NYC but recall almost blacking out & removing it from my memory. so i decided to give red hot yoga a go this week. in preparation, i drank somewhere between 2 gallons & lake raybun, noshed on a banana & had a mini-freak out because my "emergency contact" {read: husband} wasn't answering his phone so i could let him know he was on call for the next 90 minutes. a few seconds later i was whisked into a 105 degree room while i tried to settle in like a local on my little yoga mat.

then it got funny...given there was one guy in yum yums {*see pic below} & the male teachers sweat dripped on me when i was lying down & he walked by talking something like "find your balance for the week". balance? it'd take a xanax & an adderall to achieve this "balance" state you speak of.

*yum yums...unfortunately then man in front of me did not look as yummy in his.

so after spending 90 minutes in positions i'd be skeptical to see kerri strug perform, i came home to an amazing burger. and even more amazing, justin did all the cooking & cleaning with only a few pointers from me! our love of shake shack in NYC inspired this cast-iron skillet creation!

3. in a cast iron skillet, cook one side of patty approximately 2 minutes. as soon as you flip to cook other side, put cheese on the cooked side.
