Burgers, Sumo style – Part 3


I wasn’t planning to make this a trilogy, but part 2 turned out to be longer than expected, so here we are.

So you know how to grind your own beef that can be cooked to any temperature, you know how to make your own burger buns, but what about the fixin’s?

Well, I’m not going to sit here and tell you what to put on your burger. If you come into my restaurant, then you can order the burger on the menu and you’ll eat what you get and LIKE IT MISTER!!!, but when you’re cooking your own burgers at home, do whatever the hell you want to.

Burger fixin’s are a touchy subject. Brawls have been started over the “right” toppings for a burger, much like with the Great Pizza Debate (for the record, ham and pineapple is totally legit on pizza). Walk into any restaurant that has a burger on the menu and you can find a plethora of combinations – onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mustard, ketchup, relish, cheese, yadda yadda yadda, et cetera, ad nauseum. And those are just what you’ll find in fast food joints. Go into a higher end spot and you’ll find housemade concoctions that are specifically designed to be “unique” in order to draw in the customers.

The burger in my restaurant (it’s “my” restaurant because I work there, not because I’m the owner or in charge of the kitchen) is topped with Japanese mayonnaise, house made sesame sauce, house made kimchi ketchup, house made dill pickles, cheddar, tomato, and lettuce. It’s a pretty good burger, and is rather popular with our regulars.

The owner of the restaurant actually opened a burger joint in the fall of 2019, with my head chef overseeing both spots. Alas, the ‘Rona lockdowns totally killed that venture, but before the first lockdown chef offered me the opportunity to design a burger for the second spot. I was intending, of course, to call the burger The Mighty Sumo. I never did get around to actually making the thing, but I was planning on a 170 g (6 oz) patty, Swiss cheese, brown butter soy sauce mushrooms, my own version of the sesame sauce, which is better than the house one (it’s not bragging if it’s true), a Japanese style omelette, house made red miso bacon, and a pickle of some sort. And maybe tomato jam, but I wasn’t completely sure about that one.

The point to all of my rambling is, your burger is yours. You’re the one who’s going to eat it, after all. My occupation requires that I put more effort into trying to appeal to the taste of the masses, but the inverse is that I can put almost anything on a burger, and some fool is going to be happy to pay me for it. 😀

All that being said, here is a brief and entirely not comprehensive list of some of my personal favorite burger toppings (no, I would not put all of these on a burger at the same time):
– dill pickles
– ketchup
– caramelized onions
– sautéed mushrooms
– Swiss cheese
– bacon
– pulled pork
– onion rings
– roasted red peppers
umeboshi chutney
– sweet corn relish

And thus concludes our burger journey. I hope y’all learned something, and if not, well…..who cares? You can find burgers pretty much everywhere, so feel free to be lazy and just pay someone to make you one.

    NEVER mayo … what is it about people thinking every burger must have mayo? disgusting. even when you order your burger w/out mayo, they still put it on. gotta check that before you take the first bite and get that disgusting stuff in your mouth.

    Hmmm, no cheese that is commercially made or sliced in any of the large producers in Canada or USA. Perhaps Oka from Quebec, but more likely Dutch Edam, or Danish Havarti or Tilsit all sliced by yourself. Quality streaked bacon, probably British if possible. Home made garlic dill slices. Bake your own buns the day before, sliced them and lightly toasted in the barbeque, butter them for Ame, but I prefer butter on the lower side with Hellman’s mayonnaise and mustard on the top. No need for ketchup or carmelized onions, that is what BBQ sauce is…and extra bacon lest Liz is a complete swine ;-D

    And the pooch needs a cooled patty plus a piece of bacon because he is worthy ;-D

  18. So, just to prove a point to someone I decided to lose 10 lbs. Monday morning I weighed myself and the scale said 208.0 which has been the steady result over the last couple of months random measurements.

    Tuesday 206.5

    Wednesday 205.5

    Thursday 205.0

    This morning 203.5

    Each day I actually expected it to be flat or even go up a little, and was surprised at the steady downward trend.

    So I “lost” 4.5 lbs in 4 days? Yeah, I don’t think so. Gotta be almost all water weight and maybe 1 lb of fat. I didn’t even workout 2 of those days, though I did have some keto meals each day, I didn’t really cut back that much on my other meals.

    Think I’ll see if I can get to 195 by mid-March just for the giggles, tee-hee. I expect there will be a slow-down, plateau in the very ear future, but I’ll keep you posted.

    It’s been a busy couple of days up here in the Great Frozen Wasteland. And that’s not just a cute nickname this week – it’s been -40 Celsius since Sunday.

    Fun fact: -40 Celcius is the same as -40 Fahrenheit. So you southern barbarians can actually know what I’m babbling about this time.

    Spent Wednesday at the restaurant, getting ready for the reopening on Thursday. Due to the cold, a few of our suppliers had vehicle issues, so we were scrambling to be ready with limited supplies.

    Reopening went off with any major hitches, though. Because The Mighty Sumo is mighty. And his teammates are kind of okay, too.

    The irony of ironies, though – with the reopening, we had a menu change. A few new items added to the menu, and a few items taken off the menu.

    The burger, which I have so painstakingly described for all of you, is now off the menu. Such is life.

    Our Ontario government has a sense of humour.

    Most of Ontario reopened today so the bars are open for for tomorrow that most glorious of nights: Desperation Day. “When a 10 has the self esteem of a four and the unbridled enthusiasm of a 2.” Even better that it is a Saturday night.
    The night all girls look to have a last chance for a boy on valentines day.

    And the Sunday morning, Valentines Day where thots wake up thinking perfect, Valentines Day the perfect day for the first day with her husband to be.

    And Valentines Day where the guy tries to remember the name of the desperate slut he banged last night, shrugs saying who cares and takes a shower.

    And Ontario adds the perfect cherry on top.

    For Monday, when the thot has realizes her new found Prince did not call or text on Valentines Day, is a day off from work, a stat holiday to celebrate….wait for it Family Day!!!

    Yes, Family Day, the day after Valentines for all the SIWs to celebrate the families thier barren wombs will never have and the husbands who will never propose to them.

    yes, Farm Boy. she’s definitely a work-in-progress, but she has made some huge changes the last couple years. she’s also been calling me for advice a lot lately, which is very interesting on many levels.

    i can’t say i’m not without some concerns, but i’ve talked plainly about them with Aspie-Girl and my sister.

    there is a huge ‘thing’ in my sister that makes her want to please me. i’m not exploiting that, but if it wasn’t there, my daughter wouldn’t be going.

    i’ll monitor this closely, as they both know.

    i do have a peace about it, and i do think that it can be very beneficial to both of them. Aspie-Girl is quite blunt and doesn’t get emotional about being blunt – gotta love autism! there are some things Aspie-Girl needs to learn that my sister, being a teacher, is well equipped to do so. so i think there are benefits to both.

    and if at any time either doesn’t think it’s working, she will always have her place here.

    If you think Disney has cultural influence now, just wait until they have 250 million subscribers paying them money each month to babysit their kids. But then CancelDisneyPlus started trending on Twitter over and over. Major conservative and moderate voices began calling for customers to cancel their Disney+ subscriptions. These are people with millions of followers.

    And then a bizarre thing began to happen, that not even I saw coming. People actually did begin to cancel their subscriptions in mass.

    YouTube channel Overlord DVD has begun reporting that Disney execs were taken aback by the number of people unsubscribing from Disney+ in the past 24 hours. More concerning to them, they began to see exactly what people were saying about Disney as a company, and it was eye-opening.

    yes 🙂

    Aspie-Girl is my adventure girl and wants to do lots of things in her life. there are some things she wants (and even needs) to do that i am not equipped to help her with, and several of these specific things my sister is exceptionally equipped to help her with and teach her. and she’s willing to do so if Aspie-Girl is living with her.

    i’ve been praying for a long time that God would provide the people necessary to help her with these things and the resources to do so. my sister isn’t charging us for her to live there – nor would she take our money if offered. but, Aspie-Girl will be expected to do chores and such – not a free ride. and she’ll be working really hard on these goals. my sister will pretty much kick her butt on these things, and that’s a good thing.

    there are also some hard things my sister needs to learn that i think Aspie-Girl can be a vehicle through which she learns them. because my daughter has been raised a certain way, with certain values, with certain behavior patterns, she will live these things out in front of my sister. that will give my sister the opportunity to learn some important things if she has ears to hear, as Bloom always says. my family knows i’m different but they don’t understand it. they don’t realize all the severe changes i’ve made in my life to be a different kind of person and to raise my daughters to be different. where i would be careful in how i phrase these things around my sister knowing our history, my daughter has no such inhibitions 🙂

    also, this gives my Aspie-Girl the ability to spread her wings a little from Mama and still be in a very safe and protected environment over which i can still have a good amount of control. She’ll be planning and making all her own meals, doing all her own grocery shopping, and things like that that will develop more confidence. she *can* do it now, but her personality is the type to just let Mama do it.

    Good Lord every time Mike flies he gets another terrible woman story from a co-pilot.
    One was funny: A few years back, a Captain was at a hub in Las Vegas and called in some “entertainment” for the night. The person who showed up with a stew who had been working on his flight. I guess she’d moonlight whenever in Vegas. 😆

    The poor guy yesterday lives in Colorado and I guess we have some of the worst divorce laws in the state (in favor of women). His wife took the time he was on trips to go to bars and screw around. He found out, divorced her, and is now paying 8200 a month (after taxes) to her. Ten year marriage.
    Then he dated an Albanian woman shortly after. I guess in the culture there the oldest son is like the king of the house and can do anything. If he breaks someone’s teeth, they just fix the teeth and don’t talk about it. This is about what I witnessed when we were neighbors of an Albanian family. The kid would kick his grandmother frequently, in front of us. I’m glad I let our boys beat the living crap out of that kid….who had it a-coming, and then respected them.
    Anyway, the Albanian’s teenaged son was threatening her with knives so she started video taping in the home for evidence. He was perusing a video and rewound the tape, before a knife incident with the son, her boss came over and she pulled down his pants about blew him in the kitchen.
    Now he’s dating a Spanish lady with a 16 year old daughter who identifies as a son, and is in prison for meth use (her ex husband is a nut living in California…the daughter/son funded its meth use with prostitution and had a case of STDs so progressive it could be smelled when he/she entered the room).

    “We learned from the Obama $830 billion “shovel ready” plan that Keynesian stimulus does not work,” Moore said. “Obama’s own numbers indicate that we ended up with fewer jobs than if we had done nothing at all to ‘stimulate’ the economy.”

    (Pineapple makes the cheese taste spoiled.)

    HAHAHAHAHA!
    I like the polite but emphatic tone.

    I’d love to delve into the minutia (e.g. how many minutes / hours / days does it take for the cheese to spoil?) but time and space do not permit. Anyway, my own part in such discussion would be ignorant and uninformed. I don’t eat pizza.

    “I think they are trying to punish Florida. I think they are embarrassed by what Florida has done. Florida has embarrassed California. Florida has embarrassed New York. It hosted a Super Bowl with actual people in the stands. The predictions about Florida didn’t come true and they’re like, ‘We can’t let this stand. We’ve gotta come up with something.’ I think there is an element of that that involves punishment. I really do.”

    What probably goes on somewhere in the head of the average liberal who once—it seems like decades ago—so ardently embraced civil liberties and the Bill of Rights is that the way of Communist China is the inevitable way of the future. As the digital empire grows and robots take over the work force, competing parties in a democratic republic will seem so old fashioned and just stand in the way of progress (read: getting rich).

    Human freedom and liberty are passé 18th century ideas, the kind of thing that gets you banned on Twitter. Who needs it when the microchip in your sunglasses is telling you the right thing to do, what’s required of a “good citizen.”

    He opened by pointing out that Democrats improperly sat on footage of events in the Capitol to blindside Trump’s defense team and deny him due process. From there, he moved to the fact that the Democrat House impeachment managers outright lied about their alleged evidence, whether it was faked tweets or manipulated video. As part of this lambasting the Democrats for dishonesty, Schoen played for them Trump’s entire statement about events in Charlottesville, which the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) twisted into the disgraceful, defamatory “fine people” hoax.

    Schoen demonstrated that Democrats have lusted after impeachment since Trump’s inauguration. The next thing he showed is that Democrats actively promoted violence in the street and have frequently and openly expressed their desire to commit actual violence against Trump, his supporters, and America itself. Moreover, to the extent Trump used the word “fight,” he did so in a purely political sense, which is something that Democrats have done repeatedly over the years:

  81. Eating inside restaurants is bad. You are not allowed to eat inside restaurants because enclosed spaces carry the risk of being infected with the Chinese Lung Rot (mortality rate 0.05% for most cohorts), but you can eat outside in the open air. If it’s too cold outside, then the restaurant can build little houses outside and then you can go and eat inside of the little houses. Because that inside is outside.

    Big money is the only super-sciencey option.

    Guy who spent his campaign in the basement is proud of his mandate for masks in airports and planes.
    Which anyone who has been to an airport or been on a plane knows has been the mandate for months now.

    Really, at this point covid-fear mongering is a mental illness.

    We see the rich and infamous…to include “health experts” taking off their masks whenever they think no one is watching. If covid were 1/100th the threat they pretend everyone would be dressed like they do for ebola.

    for that matter, If covid were 1/100th the threat they pretend those rich and famous folks wouldn’t go outside at all.

    I know someone in her 40s who trained for a triathelon while “sick” with covid.
    Someone in a different forum wrote this, which deserves repeating:

    If one more asshòle frets over their impending death from covid (<1500) with a cigarette hanging out of their mouth (50,000+/year) I'm going to gut them.
    Korea seems to have honest numbers. American numbers are bullshìt and everybody knows they are bullshìt… and if you can't see that clearly, you need to be put to sleep to save humanity.
    In Korean, 97% of the <1500 corona deaths have been over the age of 65. Almost everybody younger who died has an obvious additional health problem (so has everyone older). It is suspected the ones who didn't has an undiagnosed health problem. America has an age distribution with slightly more deaths in their 40s and 50s… but America has a population of fat fùcks that live on fast food with an àss the shape of their sofa gobbling their diabetes pills so it doesn't take their feet… so that is to be expected.
    More people in Korea have been killed in the street by cars every year. Several times the number of Koreans died from extreme obesity. How often do you see an extremely obese Korean? How many have you seen die?
    If you fear covid you have a mental health problem. And if you don't want to get that treated, you deserve no respect… just constant ridicule.
    All the numbers are there. It is rather easy to recognize the fake numbers if you try. It is easy to notice things like a lack of deadly clusters in dense filthy homeless camps filled with unhealthy people.
    If you refuse to question this and you refuse to explain the odd statistics and situations, even to yourself, you have a mental illness.
    That's fine. Lots of people have mental illnesses and they function more or less. And as long as you leave me alone, you can go be crazy somewhere else all you want.
    But when the crazy guy on the street starts affecting my life, coming at me with a jagged broken bottle, that's when he gets it upside the head with a crowbar.
    And all you covid fear mongers are just starting to affect my life with your mental illness.
    And it's about time the remaining sane members of society knock you the fùck out before you fùck things up for everybody.
    Think I'm wrong? Tell me why. Try to use facts and not the feels. Can't do that? Go eat a dìck.

    Keep in mind that those Republican Senators who voted for conviction are also likely to vote for literally anything that the Democrats want because they have no way of making peace with the Republican and conservative base of the party.

    Get used to the numbers 57-43 and remember most things do not require a 2/3 majority.

    All of which raises the questions I hinted at above: were boomers really singularly greedy, sanctimonious, and deluded—and was there ever actually a time when a generation could simply live peacefully and gratefully off the gifts of the past? I doubt it, but why listen to me? I’m a boomer.

    Well, I think history could actually answer this question for us if asked honestly, though the story of the human race is not one where living peacefully and gratefully for even a generation often comes into play.

Psaki, along with senior aide Anita Dunn, was made aware of Ducklo’s sexist tirade on Jan. 21. Only after the Vanity Fair story on Feb 12 did Psaki/the administration act because they had to. Without the VF story, nothing happens here. This accountability statement is laughable.”

    it’s just hard on me. and i try not to manipulate my daughters based on what i want or on what’s easier for me.

    it’s … well, it’s hard to articulate how much it takes to raise a special needs kid. how much energy and time and mental energy and sacrifice, etc etc. it’s always stretching way past what you think you can do. for years, and years, and years. and, as it was with us, their dad moved out when she started kinder, so i did so much alone.

    and now … just like that, she’s moved to a different place. and my world comes to a screeching halt. i feel a bit lost and very unsure. she, otoh, feels very confident and excited – and that’s a great thing!

    it will just take some time for me to figure out this new life for me. i’ll still be in contact with her a lot. she’ll still need my advice and blessing and such. it’s just a huge shift for me.

    oh, now this is lovely … get that jab, just don’t get any kind of imaging that might show it’s done some bad stuff to you:

    In the past four weeks, doctors have seen swollen lymph nodes on screening mammograms of women who have recently been vaccinated.

    “Whenever we see these on a normal screening mammogram we call those patients back because it can either mean metastatic breast cancer which travels to the lymph nodes or lymphoma or leukemia.”

    While inflammation is the body’s normal response to a vaccine, Dr. Parkinson says it’s surprising how many swollen lymph nodes they’ve been seeing.

    “With the Moderna vaccine it’s about 11% after the first dose and 16% after the second dose. We believe it’s comparable for the Pfizer vaccine as well.”
