And so the true lasting horror of Halloween came to be.

A Perfect Weekend Breakfast

A Perfect Weekend Breakfast

Mmmmm. The perfect weekend breakfast, it comes in many, many forms, but it’s cooked over an open fire. Not much in this world beats making breakfast over the fire in the early hours of the morning while the world is quiet – or, as quiet as it’s likely to get.

And, it’s actually doable for a lot of us – more of us than most of us believe. After all, I live in Brooklyn, NY and I do it. I put a small fire pit/grill in my back court for just this purpose. In fact, when this post goes live, that’s probably where I and what I’m doing.

The Best Veggie Burger

The Best Veggie Burger Ever!

Sadly, the above ad is fake. I would have adored it if it was an actual whimsical – or mocking if you’re of the flat-toothed dietary persuasion – but, alas and alack, neither the advertisement nor Crompton’s Beef Farm are real.

Before Betty White

Before Betty White
Before Betty White There Was…

ROFLMAO And yes; in case you don’t get it, Otto Frederick Rohwedder both invented the bread slicing machine and first sold pre-sliced bread in 1928, whereas the paralleled Betty White was born in 1922. Hence, sliced bread is the best thing since Betty White, not the other way around. 😉

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. 😉
