Today, I am making my way to Syracuse, New York for the Women Involved in Farm Economics convention. These ladies rate high in my book, and I am honored to kick off the event tomorrow as the keynote speaker!
So I had a layover in New York’s JFK airport. I saw what looked like a great burger place — “Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger” was the name. Of course I was interested, so I stopped in for a quick bite. Funny thing: when I was ordering, a pilot made the comment “boy they will cook that burger so much that you’ll end up with a hockey puck of a burger!” I was impressed by the computer screen ordering system that enabled me to put everything from Heinz 57 to banana peppers on my burger. There was not, however, a cooking level option. The burger came out looking great, but as I sat down and started chewing on the burger and thumbing through my new edition of American Cowboy magazine, I soon came to find out — the pilot was right — it was cooked much past a desirable taste! So if you are going through JFK airport and see the “Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger,” joint be sure to tell them from the start that you want a burger cooked to perfection!
And since I am talking about burger joints, this past weekend my sis and I stopped in at the Five Guys burger joint in Dupont Circle, Washington, D.C. Now there is a burger joint! Five Guys has never let me down once. The best burger you can find… PERIOD. All this burger talk makes me want to go seek out a Five Guys in Syracuse!!
