Good Tuesday Morning Guys and Dolls:
Hoping you all had a pleasant evening and are ready to start a new day. Happy Birthday and Happy Anniversary to my Guys and Dolls celebrating theirs today. There are plenty of food holidays this month as usual and I try to honor the ones I like and hope you do too. Now today we honor: “NATIONAL DEEP DISH PIZZA DAY” the favorite pizza of the Windy City Chicago. You know I’m a big fan of pizza and especially the Trenton tomato pies but the deep dish is too much for me. To me it’s like eating a round lasagna without the pasta. That pizza weighs a ton to me and if you order one you have dinner for the entire week. Now my wife likes deep dish and if and when she orders one I’ll have a slice.
Speaking of honoring foods, this month is also “NATIONAL BLT MONTH” and “NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE MONTH.” I just had a great grilled Swiss cheese and bacon sandwich with tomato soup a few nights ago. We had two days of constant storms so Roe decided to make that a meal one night. It was just great comfort food that we both enjoyed on a rainy evening.
The last time I ate a BLT was months ago at a local diner and it was one of the best BLT’s ever, nice crisp bacon, fresh tomatoes and crunchy lettuce. Could go for another one soon.
The last holiday today is “NATIONAL BELL BOTTOM DAY.” I remember my first pair were jeans when I was discharged from the service. They were low riders with big bottoms and I wore those babies to death along with growing my hair long and letting the sideburns come down past my ear and growing a mustache. This was in the early 70’s and I enjoyed the style that was popular then. I also owned a few pairs of dress bells too had to look good in the evening for the ladies.
So Guys and Dolls pull out those old bells, eat a deep dish pizza, a BLT or a grilled cheese today and dream of all the yesterday memories. Have a great day.
