I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

why can’t forever be forever and nothin’ more?

who’s the one that makes you happy?
or maybe, who’s the one always on your mind?
and who is the reason you’re livin’ for?
who’s the reason for your smile?

everyone needs somebody
and you know, everybody needs someone
well, and yes it’s true
everybody needs a special kind of love
and you’re the only one I’m thinkin’ of
you mean the world to me
you are my only!

it’s not what you got, it’s what you give
it ain’t the life you choose, it’s the life you live

kale ‘n garlic

… along with rapini … my favourite greens, hands down! Very healthy, and easy to prepare/make too. I grab the bunch, and chop off the bottom (thicker) stalks/stems … wash and rinse 3-4 times quickly, shaking off excess water, yet leaving it wet … heat up my pot, add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and throw in the kale. You can immediately hear it crackle as the cool, watery leaves interact with the hot oil … season liberally with salt, black pepper and put a lid on it. A few minutes later when it’s wilted somewhat, I add the slivered garlic (I find they’ll burn if I add them along with the kale), allowing them to get golden, by that time it’s all done. All that remains is the plating, and tossing on a few chili flakes too. Enjoy!!

I can’t get any lower still I feel I’m sinking

So now you know who gets mystified
Show me the power child I’d like to say that I’m down on my knees today
Yeah it gives me the butterflies gives me away
Till I’m up on my feet again

change of plans: português comida

… sorry Tiff. Stopped at my fave Sunday haunt and got roped into a Portuguese food feast. Good bud Alex didn’t even bother to ask if I wanted a beer today, he just ordered it … and he even remembered my brand, Stella (best the bar offers). He did ask if I wanted to join him/them for lunch, his treat … I can’t tell you how many times I’ve douched out and declined … not today. A few pics y’all …

Alex and me (grunge photoshopped, lol)

Final thoughts; those three bottles of wine were drunk ‘tween eight manly men dining (seven actually … stuck with my Stella). Every Sunday, anyone who wants to eat/drink is welcomed. The bill is calculated as a whole, then divided by the number of people … roughly calculated too (no nitpicking), making paying easier. Today it was $20/head … ALL IN!! My lunch included three beers (typically $6-7 at any bar), all the food I could eat, a double shot of brandy and espresso … to call it a good bargain would be the proverbial understatement. Thanks again Alex, you’re good people!!
