Please Taste Italy For Me...

Right now I would love to hop a plane and head to Italy and end the Month of October with fireworks & vino!
Being that this is not a feasible option (at least not this weekend) I will have to insert substitutions instead. So I found this recipe in the progress of my searching for flights and hotels in Italy.
Lush Pears & Vino = Yum!

Pere da Lucca

As Italians love to eat only seasonal fresh produce, it is always wonderful to see how creatively they utilize what comes from the trees and ground of their garden. We know that Autumn produces abundantly for our primi and secondi piatti, but what shall we have for desert, dear? Aahh...may we suggest La Pere da Lucca?

This is an Autumn dish which may easily put people in their grave happily. Yes, "a dish to die for." Pears cooked in red table wine, served cool with fresh whipped cream.


Peeled pears
Bottle of cheap red wine
Sugar and cinnamon
Whip cream

Peel your pears (and make sure you pick ripe ones), as many as you want. Throw them in a pot, cover with red wine and cook until they are soft, Throw into the pot some sugar, cloves and cinnamon - as much as you want. Turn the pears so that all sides get equal treatment. By the time the pears are finally soft you will have boiled the wine mixture down to a wonderful thickened sauce for later use. Let this whole thing cool before eating. Serve with fresh whipped cream on the side (don't you even think about that Cool Whip or that canned crap!). Spoon a little of the sauce over the pears when serving.

Now you are ready to die.

I thought of (e:Paul) (e:Matt) & (e:Terry) & their grand harvest of Pears courtesy of the pretty trees in the rear garden.

I hate them so much!!! They have no idea.
No slap in the face or tossed drink in the face, mean words, or devious acts could ever convey the overall disgust that I have for each and every one of them! FUCKERS!

The Face of Elmwood

I took a lovely stroll through my old neighborhood of Elmwood Strip now referred to as "Elmwood Village". The weather was wonderful, the sunshine was brilliant and my spirits were on high.
Several things along my stroll struck me as odd.
Many of the long familiar shops were gone. Outta there.
One of the shops required advanced screening prior to patrons entering their establishment. Yes, I had to be buzzed into a WNY semi haute couture-trendy shop. What the hell?
I spoke with another shop owner who was informing her customers...

Chammycakes had to take a stroll down the street before some place close

peace out mofuckas,

comings or goings?

For the last two years during this particular season, I am drawn to some sort of impasse'.
I cannot decide whether to stay or go?
I am not ready to move to Atlanta with the rest of my family.
Yeah, I no longer have blood family in Buffalo : (
Just my family of friends : ) !
I am pressed on a weekly basis by my family in Atlanta to relocate there.
I can't seem to give them a good enough reason as to why not.
I don't really want to operate on "I didn't have a good enough reason not too, so I jumped".
Truthfully, there isn't much anchoring me to the floor of the Potomac.
It's just what I do.
