Dedicated to George

I need to clarify something about my love for food.  I know previous entries were about fancy dining and all.  But in reality, it’s really not about fancy food; it’s about GOOD food.  It has always been; it will always be.  I would rather eat great food on paper plates (or wax paper, for this story) rather […]
