What Pinup Models from the 1940s Would Eat if They Arrived Here in a Time Machine

It's amazing what a light rain can do to the roads of New York City. The West Side Highway, which under normal conditions is barely tolerable, turns into a slow-moving mess which is made even worse by the fact that they still allow people from New Jersey on the road.

Write your representatives, people. This madness has to stop!

Sausage and Fennel Fusilli with Broccoli Rabe

There was little time to cook after getting home. Jen expressed her interest in having a "meaty pasta dish" so I took the soup from the other night, cooked it down, tossed in some blanched broccoli rabe, a little tomato paste, some fusilli, butter, and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Garlic Bread

I also made garlic bread with some fresh Italian bread, mashed garlic cloves, salt, pepper, olive oil, and some paprika.

Niagara's Best Premium Blonde Ale

For beer I picked another Christmas gift, this Niagara's Best Premium Blonde Ale from The Syndicate Restaurant & Brewery (formerly Niagara's Best Beer Ltd.) in Niagara Falls, Canada. This beer was unique in that it was one of the least carbonated beers I've ever had. There was no discernible head whatsoever. There was a slight sourness. I'd expected it to be a little sweeter, sort of like that sweet lady on the label. She didn't look sour. She looked like a sweet heartbreaker from the 1940s.

A sweet, cream ale-drinking, Niagara Falls going-over-in-a-barrel, pinup model heartbreaker from the 1940s.
