The Best Burgers Ever
By Beth Beutler
1 Frederick was enjoying his stay in America as a foreign exchange student. He had come to America in January to stay for one year with a family in New England. This family loved to go camping in a big RV. In France, Frederick had never gone camping in anything but a tent. Truthfully, he didn't consider traveling in an RV as "real" camping, but he surely enjoyed it!
2 One of his favorite parts of traveling with the McKennas was eating the wonderful food they prepared. Mr. and Mrs. McKenna really knew how to throw a feast, especially when they were camping. Mr. McKenna's specialties were big, juicy hamburgers on the grill. But these were not just any hamburgers. Mr. McKenna had a secret recipe. Frederick had never tasted meat that was more tender and flavorful. He was determined to learn how to make these burgers before returning to France! And today was the day to find out!
3 Mr. McKenna was firing up the grill when Frederick stepped out of the RV.
4 "Time for some more burgers?" Frederick asked hopefully.
5 "Yes," Mr. McKenna said with a grin.
6 "Your burgers are the best I've ever tasted, Mr. M, " Frederick said. (The McKennas allowed Frederick to call them Mr. and Mrs. M.)
7 "Thank you, Frederick."
8 "Would you tell me your secret?" Frederick asked.
9 "My secret?"
