Sometimes You Just Need Your Dad


Father's Day is a time to reflect on how much your dad means to you. Dad's support, love, comfort and advise.

Water-flesh gleamed like mica:
orange fins, red flank spots, a char
shy as ginseng, found only
in spring-flow gaps, the thin clear
of faraway creeks no map
could name. My cousin showed me
those hidden places. I loved
how we found them, the way we
followed no trail, just stream-sound
tangled in rhododendron,
to where slow water opened
a hole to slip a line in,
and lift as from a well bright
shadows of another world,
held in my hand, their color
already starting to fade.
— Ron Rash

Father's Day Food has to include Maple Bacon Burgers.



3 pounds ground beef chuck
Vegetable oil, for the grill
12 slices bacon, halved
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Coarsely ground pepper
6 sesame hamburger buns, split
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon Louisiana-style hot sauce
Kosher salt
12 slices colby jack cheese
Pickle chips, for topping
  1. Form the ground beef into 12 thin patties, about 4 1/2 inches wide. Place on a baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to firm up. Preheat a grill to high and lightly oil the grates.
  2. Meanwhile, put the bacon in a large nonstick skillet (it’s OK if the slices overlap — they’ll shrink). Turn the heat to medium and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the bacon to a plate. Pour the drippings into a bowl and reserve.
  3. Return the bacon to the skillet in a single layer. Drizzle with the maple syrup and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon pepper. Cook over medium heat, turning the bacon to coat in the syrup, until glazed, about 1 minute; remove to a plate to cool. Brush the cut sides of the buns with some of the bacon drippings. Mix the mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard and hot sauce in a small bowl.
  4. Season the patties with salt and pepper on both sides. Working in batches, grill the patties until marked on the bottom, 2 minutes, then flip and top each with a slice of cheese. Cover and cook 30 more seconds for medium doneness. Toast the buns on the grill.
  5. Assemble the burgers: Spread the mayonnaise sauce on the buns. Fill with the pickles, patties (2 per burger) and bacon.
