Thompson: Some prep keeps burgers from over-plumping

Here's a hamburger grilling tip that I bet you've never heard. Have you ever noticed that when grilling a hamburger it tends to plump in the middle? To avoid this, make an indentation in the center of the patty before you put it on the grill. The indentation should be around two inches in diameter and about half of the thickness of the burger.

Thompson: Make sure fruit won’t ripen all at once

When buying fruit at the store, buy some pieces that are already ripe and some that are not quite ripe. By doing this you minimize having to eat over-ripe fruits and reduce chances of the fruit going bad before you can eat it. By the way, people don't realize that you can break up a bunch of bananas when you're in the store.
