After travelling around for a while, one will start missing home, especially the home cook meal that I usually prepare for my family. So I decided to make a homemade Capsicum Beef Burger for tonight’s dinner that I noticed my picky eater enjoyed so much throughout our recent travel. Served with his favourite Japanese curry and rice, it ensures that he finishes everything on the plate while ensuring that the meal served covers all the daily nutrients.
