cruel becomes adorable

3 out of 3 is a 10

Building contractors say “out of good, fast & cheap, pick two.”

It can be good and fast but it won’t be cheap.

It can be good and cheap but it won’t be fast.

Or, it can be fast and cheap, but it won’t be very good.

Somehow this recipe delivers three out of three.

Get these ready. 

Toss the vegetables in sizzling hot olive oil.

Finish with chili oil, black pepper and salty cheese.

So easy and healthy and good!

Unexpected company? Not a problem. Boil water.

Cook the pasta, drain, pull the vegetables up the side of the wok, add more oil, heat and toss the cooked pasta until it gets little crispy brown edges, then add black pepper and more cheese, fold the vegetables back in and serve hot, with good olives and toasted bread on the side.

Amaze your friends. Seriously.

my old flame

Tony’s Pier
1 City Island Ave, Bronx, NY 10464

More than 120 Firefighters tried to save the fabeled City Island Tony’s Pier Restaurant last Monday. 

Sandy dropped high voltage wires on the roof and sparked the blaze.

Every New Yorker knows you go to the very end of City Island Avenue where the water starts and you’ll find Tony’s on the right.

I can’t remember my first time there. Decades ago. 
I took these photos this past Summer.

The sea gulls must be distraught.

I know I am.

Be safe if you are going out

and have a Happy Halloween.

Bryan Keith can sing

One of our Bronx’s own was just selected by all four judges as a contestant on NBC’s hit show the VOICE.

If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same, if you walk away
Everyday it will rain, rain, rain...

did I nail it?

ClockTower dudes, we’re getting dissed.
A sexist movement is gathering at the Clock.

Demand your rights.

Turn out tomorrow night and have a martini while getting your nails done.

Why do you think they call it a MANicure?

(and check out that cuticle in the corner.)

gourd out of their minds

Happy Halloween!
