ODDS AND ENDS OF 2013 PART 1

Saturday, December 28, 2013


If one didn't know better you would think my life revolves around food! (Shhhhh-- it does!)

Just this month I received Christmas boxes from Chuck and Terry sending me bars of Mississippi Mud and Turtle brownies from zestofmemhis.com (check it out and salivate!!!) while the week before there was another box from the same place from Alfredo and Michael with carrot cake and white chocolate truufle bars--all gone! (Pictures 3 & 4)

The day after Christmas I got a gift box sent by Mary from Rossi Pasta (pictures 1 & 2). It consisted of: a 12 ounce package each of Parsley Garlic Fettuccini,Capelli d'Angelo angels hair and of Wild Mushroom Linguini. Also enclosed was a 215.5 ounce jar of Artichoke sauce and one of Classic Marinara. Now I just have to go out and get some good garlic rolls for a Heavenly meal!

Talking about garlic rolls some of you know that I worked as a waiter at Big Louie's here in Fort Lauderdale which was my last job before retiring and one of my best. I very seldom go to rerstaurants that I have worked at but Big Louie's is the exception. I hadn't been there for awhile so on Christmas Day, after seeing "The Wolf of Wall Street" we went there walking the block away. We had a bid fresh salad with blue cheese dressing, their fabulous garlic roles (I had one for you Terry!) and then a pizza with sausage, pepparoni, meatball, pepper and onions all tasting as good as ever! (See pictures 5 & 6)

Talking about eating out we did go to the Outback twice--the fisrt time I had a big cheeseburger and the second time a 6 ounce steak with mushroom sauce.

Still on the subject of food---who? Me? Talking about food?--somewhere in Fort Lauderdale is the carrot cake Maria sent me--I have already listed a reward and/or a threat of death for anyone who stole it!!! My neighbors know better so this is a warning to anyone who took that cake--you have never seen the wrath of GreatMartin!

For those who want to keep in touch with me please take note of my email address--will explain in a very future blog.

    I do admit I love carrot cake but for one thing I don't steal and for another I live a little too far away. So your cake is safe from me. emoticon LOL.
    Seriously I hope you do find your cake. Grrrrrr people who take things that don't belong to them. emoticon

    On another note, I went to see Anchorman 2 The legend Continues. Didn't really enjoy it. Could of missed this one. I am disappointed my theatre isn't getting American Hustle, I really wanted to see that one.

    Have a great day.
