    I stopped at the little drive in around the corner from my house on my way home from work. I got a "Hot Russian" burger. Two patties with shredded lettuce and grated horseradish mixed in horseradish cream. I took it on home and added Famous Dave's Devil's Spit pickles, more horeseradish cream and Melinda's Habanero Catsup. Uhmmm good.

    I don't get "afterburn". That's a sissy problem.

    Nope. No heat in it. I occasionally add a little scorpion pepper sauce.

    We surprised the kids after school (got out at 11:30) and drove an hour to Miner's in Yakima. I recently got over the virus-that-must-not-be-named and don't have my huge appetite back, so I asked for their smallest burger (which is still about as damned big as a dinner plate). Ate half of it for lunchand the rest of it will be my dinner. It's the classic everything-on-it burger, pretty tasty.

    That loss of appetite has caused me to lose 20 lbs. since the start of the year. Hoping to perpetuate that trend, but it need not go so fast as it has thus far.

    I travel through your neck of the woods three or four times a year at least. I would be interested in trying one of these Hot Russians (the burger) one time.

    I love horseradish on LOTS of things.....but mixed with Russian dressing never occurred to me.
    That's definitely on my "To Do" list now.......Thanks. ;););)
    BTW, I had an In N Out burger today.....first in several years. Not bad.

    A little north of you Ironwolf in McCall, there used to be this place called Lardo's that had the best burger I think I ever ate. Wonder if that place is still there. Killer burger on a weekend drive.

    I believe it's still there, but Big Jud's in Boise is better. Especially the Mushroom Bacon burger.

    Funny you should post this just now; had some tasty burgers carried out from a pub in the neighborhood that a former student of mine opened a little over a year ago. Very tasty.

    Simple is better. Ground brisket with sweet onions sautéed until brown first appears. I like cheese. Kerry Gold Irish cheddar is the ideal burger cheese. I like my burger on a toasted brioche bun with coleslaw and potato salad on the side. Dessert anyone? One Walker’s shortbread cookie with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and an Australian flat white.

    Sounds great - just finished a home-cooked burger, w/ avocado, sautéed mushrooms, sliced onions & tomato (raw) & dill pickle. Yahoo.
    And:
    Home made parmesan roasted home-fries.
    Thank you, Mrs Deeve...
