Fall's Peak Foliage Spectacular

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients who are enjoying this brisk morning as we usher in the first welcoming change of weather this season.

Truth be told, I'm as excited as a chubby man with a full jar of Nutella (That's not an analogy, I'm just crazy about Nutella) at the arrival of this Fall's Peak Foliage Spectacular that will be arriving in the next week or so.

I cannot wait to witness the bright reds, the toasted yellows and the caramel colors that will be bestowed upon us. Now for those of us who are so fortunate to live in this glorious county we must be willing to share this sensory treasure with our city brethren. You didn't believe me just now, did you? Sure, I really dig the Foliage Peak but I have no plans to share it with those "City Folk" as they swarm upon like well-dressed locusts, devouring our Pumpkin Patches and drinking our precious Apple Cider stocks dry... not this year my fellow travelers. Should I see even one "skinny jeaned" hipster with their well cropped hair and full beard this year, I plan to attack. No not with violence, we're not animals in the country but we must follow a master plan of confusion and passive aggressive interactions so as to rid ourselves of these free spirted beatniks.

Should you want to join the ranks may I suggest you pick up a copy of this year's plans at Metro. On page three is one of my favorite strategies, you first post signs on your yard pointing these rubes to the "Largest Pumpkin in the State" when they invariably ask for more direction you first complement their perfectly groomed facial hair and then direct them to one of the predesignated "Pumpkin Patches" where our "County Troops" will be waiting. Now here is where it gets fun, when they arrive they will be treated to a complementary cup of hot apple cider and when a false sense of security overtakes them, boom, the troops pop out and shave off their beards. Of course for the Lady hipsters, we'll be snatching their oversized scarfs and replacing them with a very itchy Jersey Made Corn husk neck wrap. Sure, these measures are extreme but we must set an example if we are ever to enjoy our "Country Treasures" with any piece of mind. Should you not want to participate in this year's Master Plan then may I suggest hunkering down with today's easy weekday recipes featuring A Shark Steak Pan Roast with a Lemon Rosemary Beurre Blanc & Sauteed Shrimp over Creamy Polenta with Warm Tomato Vinaigrette.

Enjoy the Foliage Everyone!
