hot, sweet & spicy

Today was THE hottest day of the summer hitting 106 degrees.  
The absolute worst thing to come home to on the hottest day of the year is a hot house.  Our house was 91 degrees and felt like a sauna when we came home.  I just about cried at the thought of having to buy an air condition with my summer school money.  

Matt messed with some switches and we got it running again but only time would tell if it was working properly.  

Thankfully last week a friend from high school who works for the PR firm that represents Red Robin asked if I wanted to try out a new burger for free!!

If you know me at all, you know that I love anything free!!  So I was super excited about this opportunity. It worked out perfectly that we had a place to go eat dinner for free when we needed to get out of the house for dinner!!

Every year Red Robin hosts a Kid's Cook-Off where kids submit their own recipe to be served at Red Robin.  This year's winner, 10 year old Emma P. created a Spicy Honey Glazed Bacon Burger.
Matt and I were lucky enough to get a sneak preview tasting of Emma's burger before they are offered to the public tomorrow.  Not only did we get to try her burger we also got bottomless fries and beverages.
I was a little bit nervous about the "spicy" part of the burger.  I don't do spicy at all, but the sweet honey taste toned down the spicy taste.  It was delicious!!
We both thoroughly enjoyed our burgers. 
So why am I blogging about this?? 

Because I wanted to tell you need to go to your nearest Red Robin and get your own Spicy Honey Glazed Bacon Burger created by Emma.  For every burger sold Red Robin donates fifty cents to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.  

Hurry though because these burgers will only be available at Red Robin until September 12th.

And for those wondering......when we came home from Red Robin our AC was down to 85 degrees and we woke up to a cool house this morning at 80 degrees.  Praise the Lord we don't have to buy an air conditioner!!

I'm so glad you liked the burger! I'm going to try it next week. Also, I'm glad your air conditioner is working. My Denver apartment doesn't have air conditioning, and while it's not as hot here, it can still get pretty warm inside.
