I’m a creature of comfort. I’m a customer of the king and queen comforters.

With covid meaning that we have now gone 329 days without placing our butts on barstools, the eating habits of Don Day’s Wife and I have changed. A lot. I’ve always been a creature of comfort. Always a jeans and sneakers guy. One of the first songs I search for when...

Making pickled Mexican onions. You only cry when they’re all gone.

I don't like snails or toads or frogs Or strange things living under logs But, mmm mmm mmm, I love onions Ahhh, memories of the sound of Susan Christie's sensuous whisper accompanied by a honking kazoo. I loved the Sixties novelty song “I Love Onions”. Because, well,...

If you know Tony, tell him about these wings. Please.

There’s a guy in town called Tony. I don’t know Tony very well. But I know Tony’s from Buffalo. Which gives us something very much in common. Because I’m from a suburb of Buffalo called Canada. As a once-teenaged Canadian, I lived in a land where people were not...

Tantalized long enough. Last night I ordered tantamen.

About a year ago, Chikatana added Chef Satoru Takeda as a partner. About a week later the restaurant had four different ramens on their menu. About four days after that I had a decision to make. Which one would I order? I love ramen. Don Day’s Wife loves ramen. We...
