Know this guy?
Sure you do — the sausage guy, right?
Always reminding you to eat a good breakfast. Sometimes is being circled by the planets.
Well, today, be on the lookout. He may be pushier than usual.
You may even notice him loitering around….trying to insert himself into your lunch — dinner, too.
Sausage, sausage, sausage — you won’t hear the end of it.
And that’s because it’s….
National Sausage Pizza Day!!!!
Of course, you may have already heard about this from William Shatner. He might be wandering around your house, too.
If you see something, say something. And have a slice!

Yummy? Creamy? Better-tasting?
Sorry, Greek yogurt, I ain’t buying it.
Oh, I’ve tried your wares — different brands, different fruit-and-yogurt combos, too — and it’s true you don’t taste like other yogurts…
You taste like sour cream.
And I wouldn’t choose to eat anything that has turned for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I did add the fruit. Didn’t help. I added sweetener, too…and then wondered why I was going to all that trouble when I can simply eat Activia when I have a hankering for yogurt.
It already tastes good.
I’ll admit, John Stamos is a very appealing spokesperson for Greek yogurt, but he doesn’t deliver, either –
When I bought his brand, he was nowhere to be seen.
Maybe that accounts for the bad taste in my mouth.

I cooked last night.
Yes, this is a blog-worthy event.
I made breakfast for dinner. Biscuits — from a can, I admit — and milk gravy.
Here in New York City, the term ‘milk gravy’ is greeted with much confusion. So I will explain further in case you are also reading this with your head cocked to the side in bewilderment.
In a skillet on medium heat, I browned flour in vegetable oil. (Bacon grease is the first choice, but I didn’t have any.) To the flour, I added milk, stirring constantly over low heat.
Now, during this process, there was a lot of adjusting — how much oil, how much flour, how much milk. I even added some water at the end to thin the gravy…plus salt and pepper to taste.
But, I must say, the final product was nothing short of amazing.
Filling? Yes. Heavy? Oh yes. I even added bacon to the plate, so there’s nothing about this meal that my doctor recommends.
But it does a heart good to enjoy such a feast on a good, damp New York City night.
