The lard should clog your arteries and the alcohol should thin it out, so hypothetically it balances out, right?

Rediscovering the Cars after about 20 years. I bought a used copy of their greatest hits box set in college, the case was purple with glitter. I remember being amazed even at 23, jaded, full of jizz.

After last night’s heavy meal, I decided to cook something a bit lighter.

Chicago deep dish: a dough made from flour, cornmeal, salt, yeast, and a stick of butter. Roll it out and spread it across a cast iron pan, and then top it with cheese, sausage, bacon, red onion, a spicy marinara sauce, and more cheese.

I recommend taking LA Fly Guy’s excellent dietary advice and balancing it out with a side of red wine and brown liquor.

My wife ate the salad.

It was one star at best.

The salad. Not the deep dish.

Tomorrow: prime rib.

The “This is so unhealthy” complaints are gradually getting louder and more persistent, and they should crescendo by Wednesday.

Good news: it will be quite a while before my wife says, “I’m tired of cooking all the time. Why don’t you cook this week?”

Bad news: it will be quite a while before my wife says, “I’m tired of cooking all the time. Why don’t you cook this week?”

The brown water with red wine chaser brings me great joy.

A friend of mine is always receiving Cuban cigars from people he works with.

He doesn't smoke, so he gives them to me.
