National Pizza with the Works Day (except anchovies) Quote for Today: Neapolitan’s have always had their fast food. It’s called pizza. Luciano De Crescenzo   Today is National Pizza with the Works Day (except anchovies). Americans really love their pizzas. We have a Pizza Festival Month, three Pizza Days and two weeks all dedicated to some form of this late night dorm room favorite.   Hold the Anchovies? One thing that gets me is the exclusion of the anchovy. Anchovies are salty and a little overpowering, but hey, get them on the side, why not? We get everything else on the side. Give them a quick rinse under cold water if you like then try it on a slice. You might be surprised by a taste of Umami lingering around. If the anchovy is just too much for you, try some high-quality fish...

Quote for Today: When you find a little slice of heaven, eat it.  TJ CJ & I had a little side trip to Bonifay this past Friday. Our mission was to procure proteins, mainly whole tenderloin and sirloin. Our sources told us of a place called Tate’s Grocery in the beautiful town of Hartford, Alabama a short distance from the Florida line. I am sure you have probably never heard of Hartford. The only one I had ever heard of was in Connecticut where they sell insurance. As luck would have it, time was of the essence. Not able to peruse the store thoroughly we decided to go back today. If you have ever read our blog before, there is a Pho house in Bonifay going by the name of PHO Noodle & Kaboodle . We have dined at this establishment before...

Dinner At Eight…

Posted by on Feb 14, 2013 in dining, Food, Lifestyle, Roadtrips R Us, Today in History, Travel & Food Blog, Valentine' Day | Comments Off on Dinner At Eight…

Quote of the Day: “The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved – loved for ourselves or rather loved in spite of ourselves.” Victor Hugo There are many versions of the history of Valentine’s Day and until researching we did not know how many recounts there were. We have always treated Valentine’s Day as a typical holiday where you let someone that you love know how special they are. Which is in fact the case! Valentine’s Day is an occasion where couples, married or not, express their love for one another in ways they normally would not do the rest of the year. This is sad, but can be rectified without resorting to elaborate schemes. For example, listening – really listening to what your partner is saying is a step in the right direction. Then,...

Quote for Today:  Where is that wascally wabbit?  Elmer Fudd Labor Day weekend is upon us and it seems like summer just started.  Normally, the dog days of August seem to go on forever.  However, in our little hamlet of the world what I imagined as monsoon season on the other side of the earth  seemed to occur here. Monday is the day most people (Southern) celebrate the last day of summer and the end of wearing white, the beginning of school, and a hope that an Indian Summer will help them enjoy their pools a little longer.  September 3rd is also National Welsh Rarebit Day 2012. I remember first having this dish as a child when Campbell’s Cheddar Cheese Soup was thickened by only using half the amount of milk and spiked with Worcestershire Sauce, Cayenne Pepper or...

Quote for Today:  Chicago will give you a chance.  The sporting spirit is the spirit of Chicago.  Lincoln Steffens Way back in 1833, Chicago, Illinois was incorporated as a village, its’ population was around two hundred.  Today, Chicago is the largest city in Illinois and the third most populous city in America.  The City itself has 2.7 million residents while the “Chicagoland” area boasts 9.8 million inhabitants.  Over the years Chicago has become an international hub for finance, commerce, and industry.  With all the growth that has occurred since its humble beginnings, Chicago has seen its share of great restaurants over the years.  The Berghoff Restaurant founded by Herman Berghoff over 114 years ago is one that stands out in my mind. Herman originally owned a brewery in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and his beer was so popular he decided...

 Quote for Today:  “A man who limits his interests limits his life.” Vincent Price On this day in history 1915, Vincent Sardi, Jr. was born.  For over fifty years he was the owner and manager of Sardi’s Restaurant on 44th Street in Manhattan.  Located in New York’s Theater District, Sardi’s is well known for the hundreds of caricatures of show-business celebrities that adorn its walls. Sardi’s gained a lot of fame due to its mention in newspaper columns by Walter Winchell and Ward Morehouse.  Winchell and Morehouse were members of a group of newspaper men, press agents, and drama critics who met for lunch at Sardi’s and called themselves “The Cheese Club.”  Press agent and Cheese Club members brought Alex Gard as a guest one afternoon that promptly drew caricatures of the Cheese Club members and the rest is...
