Author Notes: One of my favorite burgers, but since my life long companion does not care for olives, I only make them when she is absent. Is it too much to ask of the woman of your dreams to join you in an occasional olive burger? I think not. Grounds for divorce after 50 years of marriage? You tell me.MTDavids
