    IMHO, time with friends matters. Never apologize for not having time to find a comment or two. Friends, a shared meal, a laugh... those are the moments that constitute a life well lived. I begrudge no one that.

    Which brings me to why I'm so late commenting... my SIL and her kids are here; niece swims Age Groups at Harvard this weekend, nephews are along rather than spend weekend at grandparents, and we were enjoying the conversation after dinner until SIL and I realized it was 10pm.

    As for a $40 burger... I don't know what would make it worth that. Possibly being hand-fed morsels by the goodlooking person of my choice. But I'm not sure even then :)

      is the term, of Japanese origin, for "richness of flavor," which is the fifth flavor we have taste for (in addition to sweet, sour, salty and bitter).  So they put all kinds of stuff in these burgers to pack on the richness of flavor--and I have to say that the burger was far more flavorful than any other I've ever had.  But it wasn't worth $40.
