The wife is going out of town this afternoon. And when the pretty kitty is away, Mr. Mouse is going to play. No, I am not going have the boys over to watch football and drink beer. If I am going to tread on the edge of trouble, I am going to make it worth my while.
My wife does not put too many restrictions on me. I have given up all my bad habits. And since she told me the most romantic thing that a career underachieving goofball could ever hear – “Kravitz, if you don’t screw this up, you’ll never have to worry about money again” – I have taken all of the hazards out of play. But she has taken away playing in the kitchen from me. She says I do not clean up well enough to be granted kitchen privileges which has been a bitter pill to swallow. I love cooking and baking. But refer to back to “if you do not screw this up….” And she is a great cook herself so it is not as if I am going to go hungry.
But the fun of making something you love to eat is to tempting to resist. Can you say – BLINTZES? Oh yeah, a nice big batch of my new signature filling – a traditional sweet cheese filling loaded with semi-sweet and white chocolate – this would be something I would have used to close with back in my single days.
And, of course, this is a very low mess operation and I begged for and received permission. I may be dumb but I ain’t stupid.
It doesn’t take a whole lot to convince
This old Jewish American Prince,
When his Yiddish taste buds need thrilling,
It’s crepes and cheese filling…
You can never go wrong with a blintz!
