^ I hope you don't mind Phil, I posted those two delicious looking photos of your burger
in the Mmmmmmmmm......Burger thread.

Looks amazing. And Michael's Reuben looks pretty nice, too!

^ Not a problem, Bill...I was conflicted over which thread to post these in! ;)

It's been a while since I have posted in this thread, so shame on me.

Yesterday, Michael and I went to the 2016 Taste Of Buffalo. TOB now proclaims to be the biggest two day food event in the country, despite Chicago still taking top honors for largest (plus they are a five day event).

One thing that I noticed this year (we were out of town for last year's event) was that they don't seem to offer as many of the smaller amount of samples for 2-4 tickets like they used to, instead wanting to dole out bigger servings for 6-8 tickets. My personal opinion is that this is a money grab by the restaurants to make as much money as they can at this event, which diminishes people's ability to sample smaller portions from each restaurant. I certainly hope that this trend doesn't continue because I don't want to attend only to get full from sampling 2-3 portions when I used to be able to sample around 10 before I was too stuffed to eat anymore.

I think that in the future, the best way to tackle this event would be to bring about four to six people so that everyone can sample more and not get full as quickly. Perhaps this is the method to their madness in order to get more people to come, who knows?

Oh well...are you guys ready to check it out?

I hate your metabolism, Phil! :p (Or what appears to be...)

It all looks awesome - what more can I drool, here?

Thanks for a thoroughly disgusting (YUM) TR. Shameless.




:wink: The pizza looks AWESOME, too!

Thanks Bill!

And yes, luckily a high metabolism runs in the family although there are two things that I really need to work on....and those are: Eating later in the evening versus "normal people dinner time" and my love for things like chicken wings and pizza. I hope that my disdain for sweet things like doughnuts, cakes, cookies, soda and ice cream sort of makes up for that though?

Oh and the drinking...I should probably drink less too. ;)

^ I actually stopped drinking any alcohol whatsoever all of June, and this month, too.
Just looking to see if a)The weight changes - at - all (and so far, it ain't), and b)How I'm
generally doing, having not drunk a drink every night (or other). And so far, I'm just as
nasty and bitchy sober, than with a drink in my paw, ha!

I have major "cocktail events" coming up in August, so I may just stop the drought, and
have them during those dates, only. Which is only a few. I think.

Pizza still looks good, there, by the way. :wink:

This was a homemade pizza that I did a couple of weeks ago. While the crust was store bought, there was fresh basil from my garden on it, along with fresh mozzarella, pepperoni, cubes of smoked gouda and diced onions/green peppers. The sauce was a blend of tomato vodka and creamy alfredo that I had leftover in the fridge


It's all awesome pizza! :)
