I think all of my favorite childhood memories involve food.

It’s hot yet pleasant Saturday here at Howdygram headquarters. Sam and I consumed the world’s largest chicken pot pie [see previous post] for lunch today, and I would like to report it was every bit as FREAKIN’ INCREDIBLE as I hoped! There’s enough leftover for at least two more meals, and one of them — at least for me — will happen about half an hour from now (around 5:45) because all of a sudden I’m very hungry again. So I won’t pass out in the meantime I’ll nosh on a couple of  Amber Lyn sugar-free truffles, which you can buy in four unforgettable flavors — double chocolate, orange, coconut and mint — but I always order the three-pound assortment because I love them ALL. (Sam, too.)
Incidentally, Amber Lyn’s mint truffles remind me of Frango Mints from Marshall Field’s when I was growing up in Chicago. I think all of my favorite childhood memories involve food. Trust me, this explains a LOT.

Hey, boys and girls, even if you’re really not race fans don’t forget to tune in this afternoon to watch the Belmont Stakes on NBC. Here in Dallas post time is 5:52 but I figure we’ll probably start watching around 5:30 so we can absorb some race day excitement and other baloney. Does anybody think California Chrome will win the Triple Crown? It’s been 36 years since Affirmed did it. My race time snack of choice will be the previously-mentioned chicken pot pie.
Thank you for reading this.
