Let’s face it. teeth discolor. Coffee. Wine. Aging. It happens.

I found a trio of Crest whitening products that beat all. They’re all  available on Amazon Prime, which is a blog in and of itself.

You, too, can have a brilliant Hollywood smile!

And, remember to floss. But, only the teeth you want to keep.

The Details

Amuse Bouche – Fried Green Tomato
Google tells me this is a small complimentary appetizer in addition to the meal, sort of like a pre-appetizer appetizer. I’m in!
I don’t know food but I know what I like. And I liked this.
2 tomatoes

First Course – Deviled Crab Cakes
“I need a cigarette!” Moist and tasty with a little bite.
3 crabcakes

Second Course – Kilt Greens with bacon Dressing.
You had me at greens bacon. A warmish salad with a light bacon drippings dressing. Topped with cherry tomatoes, bacon and Parmesan. Another winner.

You alert readers have noticed a theme. Everything was spectacular!

Third Course – hold on to your seats: Southern Fried chicken, black-eyed peas, summer succotash, a genuine George Formaro biscuit and macaroni & cheese.
5 dinner

  • Chicken: Brined in a mixture of kosher dill pickle juice and seasonings. Dipped in buttermilk then dredged through flour and fried in lard. It doesn’t get any better than this!
  • Black-Eyes Peas: Prepared southern-style with smoke ham hocks.
  • Summer Succotash: Lima beans, okra, corn, grape tomatoes, smoked ham, heavy cream, et al.
  • Macaroni and Cheese: Not your school-lunch macaroni and cheese. It was so creamy. Creamy and dreamy!

Fourth Course: Chess pie.
it reminded me of a pecan pie but without the nuts. Topped with a thin layer of chocolate, it will be my go-to pie from now on. For eating, of course, not baking.

Refreshing adult beverages were served as well.

If you get a chance to participate in one of George’s dinners, run, don’t walk.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Now, part of my going-out routine, i trim my nose hairs. Vince should consider doing the same.

I’ve tried several types – scissors, clippers and rotary.

Best. One. Ever.

It’s effective, painless, easy to clean, and priced right.

Summertime, and the shaving is easy…[05.08.15]

May 8, 2015

To help you ready your skin for summer, here are two shaving products I highly recommend.

The  Venus Swirl Razor. It operates so smoothly, you would have to try to cut yourself. If you don’t want to splurge on this particular model, the other Venus razors are just as good but without the contouring swivel.

Now you’ve got your razor, time to get a shaving oil, L’Occitane Cleansing and Softening Shower Oil with Almond. While it is a shower oil, i use it in particular when shaving. It is so luxurious, leaving your skin baby soft. But without the diaper smell. In fact, it has a soft almond fragrance. Lovely.

Enjoy your summer.
