Put it all together, and you get a big, cast iron pan full of goodness.

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?”

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

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