Rails East: Burger Off the Hoof

railroad:omaha

Omaha, Nebraska: “Before crossing the Missouri River, we had time to eat lunch. A man from the Omaha tribe who had experienced prejudice in the community sold burgers near the station. He slow-cooked a meatless burger made of oats, onions and potatoes over a hot bed of coals—his way of heaping coals of fire on those that taunted him. Served with fresh lettuce, garden-ripe tomatoes and melted cheese, the savory burger brought him plenty of business. He wouldn’t share his recipe, but I bought one of the hand-made belts he sold in his restaurant.”

“Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”
Romans 12:20 KJV
