Principled pragmatism at the maghrib of one age, the fajr of another
with apologies to Diana and Jim, the only way to do a burger right is to mash a double handful of ground beef with a huge pinch of garam masala, slap it into a patty, and throw it on the George Foreman grill. Burn that puppy to well-done, no pink. Eat with ketchup, mustard, and/or green chutney. Buns are optional if you have naan. Anything else is indeed "gussied up". shallots and marjoram? good grief!
