Beware Absinthe And The Green Fairy Within?
Yeah, No. I Don't Think So

Absinthe? Love it! The Green Fairy? I’m surprisingly OK with her coming and taking me away. 😉

Pizza, The Good & The Not

Pizza, The Good & The Not

Yeah, as longtime resident of NYC, I’m utterly and completely biased towards our pizza. But … I’m saying that Chicago style pizza is bad; I’m just saying that, tasty or not, it’s not pizza. It’s a casserole of some sort. 😛

I’ll Always Take A Slice

I’ll Always Take A Slice Of Pizza

Oh yeah! Pizza! Both one of my favorite food and, in my opinion, one of the best foods around, being economical, “diverse,” and suitable for both sit-down dining and on-the-go scarfage. 😉

Wake The Hell Up!

Wake The Hell Up!

Yeah, some mornings – especially Monday mornings it seems – are like that. We all need – or, at least I do – some hellishly strong coffee in order to function in a manner that is safe for both myself and anyone around me. 😉

Coffee To Wake, Coffee To Rise, More To Make Me Smile

But … While coffee is quite enough to invoke my presence in the morning and to wake me up in a manner conducive to civilization, it does take more than that most times to bring me to both full consciousnesses and put me in a more pleasant mood at the start of the day.

I Am Summoned!

Of course, the one of my women who is something of a morning person in that she wakes up even earlier than I do, knows the proper rituals and rights to summon me to the waking world. 😉 So, in that I am one lucky devil. 😆

Many Fine Mornings

Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way
Many Fine Mornings Have Started This Way

I’m proud to say that many fine mornings have started this way for me, mostly in the Spring and Fall months when the weather calls to me to start the day with coffee over a fire.

A Solid, Country Breakfast
A Solid, Country Breakfast Is The Right Choice

And then, once my blood stream has been returned to its properly caffeinated state, I and my family like a hearty, country style breakfast cooked over and eaten around that same fire.

And yes, even though I and my family live in Brooklyn, this is a common breakfast scenario for us. I’ve got a good-sized grill/offset smoker out front and a smaller pit grill in our rear court. Both charcoal, not freaking gas or those pellet things. Proper charcoal as the God(s) intended. 😉

It’s all part of being who you are and doing what you love, irrespective of where you find yourself at any given time.
