Good Morning to all my Guys and Dolls out there. Today the holidays suck, but we do have some food stuff to celebrate.
January is "Oatmeal Month." I have not eaten oatmeal in years, I am a man of cereal. You ask what kind of cereal? I like Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Wheaties and some other varieties that catch my eye when we are shopping. One has to have bananas in the cereal to make the breakfast complete. I really enjoy eggs, over medium, omelets or scrambled eggs with some pork roll, ham and of course home fries. But these days Joey Z is limited on sodium intake, but once in awhile I sneak it in mostly on cruises. I have to admit Roe makes one great omelet, my son Joey could verify that fact. I forgot we are talking oatmeal today, I remember Mom making some great oatmeal from just the box and adding her own flavors. So you oatmeal lovers enjoy it today.
January is also "Tea Month." I enjoy a cup of tea now and again especially a night. Decaf of course as not to keep me up all night long. Once in-a-while I sneak in a cup of coffee with a little treat. I also have to drink tea when we go to a Chinese restaurant it adds flavor to the meal. So tea lovers put up those little pinkie fingers up and enjoy yourself today or tonight.
Now as far as the food stuff goes it brought me back to the memory of Lisook's Jewish Deli (hoped I spelled it right or my reader the Skip will correct me) on Brunswick Ave., where I grew up. The smell coming from there was great. Giant Kosher pickles in a barrel, fresh lunch meat, sweets of all kinds. The best part were the hard rolls and fresh bagels in the inside of the front windows. They made for a great sandwich. My favorite was a good hard roll with butter and a cup of coffee in the morning. Near my Grandmother's house there were so many bakeries which specialized in their best products. Sad to see them gone now. Yesterday I went looking for fresh French hamburger buns for a good pork roll sandwich. All of them were soggy so I had to pass those guys up. Oh well enough of food for today, have a great one Speakies.
