I guess, if you like chess, but I confess, I couldn't care less about chess.
I guess I'm more easily impressed

But really, St Louis Chess Club is a power house in the world of chess.

I strongly suspect that it is Rex Sinquefield that who brings the money

Edit: You shouldn't let the poor (and humble!) furriner make such embarrassing mistakes

My glazed doughnut egg McBob.
I only made this one time, a few years back, still recovering.
a few years back donut burgers were the heart killer of the midway at the canadian nation exhibition ....every summer ends with the ex and some deadly variant of a months fats in a meal... deep fried butter made an appearance one year

You NASA dudes... Beetroot?

Really?

That makes about much sense as your latest "proof" that the Earth is spherical
Hi Savouche

Yep....really

You need flavours to nulify the excess fat content of the burger....and its yum too
Eggs and pineapple are also extra flavours


NASA not required and psst don't tell 'em

You lost me at "nullify the excess fat", Dave... but I suspect you'll have the last laugh

That aside, I really like beetroot, and it goes well with burgers, especially if its freshly grated. Great in slaws, too

for me the best burger comes off a flattop and needs to be hand formed so lots of bits to carmelize and get crispy. add cheddar and bacon ... and dijon for me. i used to load them up now i think stripped back to the basic elements

Nice. I could go for a burger with cheddar and bacon right now.

Here in the UK, before the advent of widespread American fast-food joints, the toppings of choice were well-fried onions and/or a fried egg, with tomato ketchup, HP brown sauce, or "burger sauce". Most road-side trailers still typically sell burgers that way, although bacon and cheese have become fairly common options over the decades...

I like a good quality burger with a slice of mild or medium cheddar, and a couple of slices of sweet pickle. But I'm still very fond of a burger with fried onions, and especially a fried egg (with a soft yolk that bursts when you bite into it)

Since he's actually a money machine, that is fitting.
sorry, it didn't pick up the line through your that.

It's simply beets dudes!
Do y'all eat potatoroots, rutabagaroots, carrotroots, radishroots, and turniproots too?
I would try raw sliced beets on a burger.

You've seen the original TV series of Blackadder, I presume, and you're familiar with Baldrick? Things haven't changed that much up here in the North East. We love a good turnip. I believe you would call it "po' folks food".

Incidentally, a "turnip" up here is actually what you folks would call "rutabaga". I'm not sure what name we ascribe to your turnip...

I adore radishes, and can happily snack on those. Especially with a beer

Throughout my youth, I was all-but-convinced that beetroot grew pre-sliced in a pickle jar. That's the only way we bought them up here. It wasn't until I was an adult (at least in my own mind) and had moved down to London for work that I ever tasted it freshly grated... I like both, but prefer it fresh

No, I think he was a baseball quarterback. I think he played for the Lakers.
I'm a serious spots fan.
