“Gentlemen, in the little moment that remains to us between the crisis and the catastrophe, we may as well drink a glass of Champagne.”
Paul Claudel, French writer (1868-1955)

As we say good by to 2017 & hello to 2018, I wish everyone all the best in the year of 2018. Be safe…..
A toast to the New Year for health, wealth, happiness, love, peace, prosperity and career success! 👀
Bartender, Server and Hostess Tip of the Day
If your serving, bartending or hosting a New Year’s Eve Party tonight, offer Ginger Ale soda to anyone prior to the midnight toast that are not drinking alcohol due to being the designated driver! ✔😃

Please don’t drink and drive tonight, take a cab, local transit or have a friend, family member to pick you up at the end of your night!
Cheers, 🥂

December 29, is Pepper Pot Day

December 29, is Pepper Pot Day

Quote of the Day
“Don’t be too daring in the kitchen. For example, don’t suddenly get involved with shallots. Later, when you are no longer a Lonely Guy, you can do shallots. Not now. If you know coriander, stay with coriander and don’t fool around. Even with coriander you’re on thin ice, but at least you’ve got a shot, because it’s familiar. Stay with safe things, like pepper.”
Bruce Jay Friedman (1930- ) ‘The Lonely Guy Cookbook’ (1976)

The cold temperatures has arrived in some areas and it’s time to cook up a nice pot of pepperpot stew or soup, here is today’s video recipes on a cold December days! Enjoy and leave any comments below on how your cooking went! 🤔……. Yummy!

“The virtue of anyone or anything is solely in our perspective. See gold, and there is gold; see lead and there is lead. If you see this thistle as a thorny nuisance, then it is a weed. If you appreciate its bright pink bloom, then it is a flower. It becomes what you name it. The power is in your choice, your perspective, your speaking.”

Quote of the Day
“Let’s say you had to report back to heaven at the end of your time on earth, tell them what your personal allotment of experience had been: wouldn’t it sound like Poppy’s speech? The smell of radiator dust on a winter morning, the taste of hot maple syrup …”

Closing Quote
“The End of the Most Amazingest Trip in the History of Time “We’re heading home after checkout, Enzo,” Dad told me one morning in the restaurant of a Sacramento hotel as I was busy scarfing down French toast stuffed with cheese and drenched in maple syrup. I will never eat stuffed French toast again. The trip was over? How did this happen? All six weeks couldn’t possibly have come and gone so fast. Time is so unfair. It whizzes by when you’re having the most incredible fun of your life, then drags when you’re totally miserable, like, say, when you’re stuck at the wedding of people you’re not even sure you know. Dad and his boss, Evan, set their hands on my shoulders, to steady me. I was feeling pretty wobbly. Then they took turns tousling my hair. I hate having my hair tousled. “Don’t!” I whined like a little kid, and pushed their hands away. Evan laughed. “Don’t take it so hard. Even the most awesome things have to come to an end”
Author: Patrick Jennings

Yes all things must come to an end and that’s it for today, hope you enjoy today’s post National Maple Syrup Day and enjoy some maple syrup on your pancakes, french toast or beans. See you back here tomorrow! 😃
