I traveled to Philly in search of some Pho (Fuh),
but drove past Reading Terminal, wait......... huh?

I had a roast pork sandwich at Tommy Dinic's (Dinitch's),
who uses broccoli rabes instead of spinaches.

Knowing I was close to Siu Kee Duck House,
I bought 3 wings and 2 quails, (not 2 grouse).

The roasted fowl all hung in the window with care,
with hopes that Baydog soon would be there.

The aroma it encircled my head like a wreath,
and left grease on my fingers and a bone in my teeth.

No Vietnamese beef noodle soup this time down.
But it's only 35 minutes to Chinatown!

Tacos de Pescado

I'm a complete sucker for fish tacos.

There's been a distraction of sorts lately that's been preventing
me from spending any meaningful time doing what I've come to
really enjoy:  blogging.  It involves engaging my brain and tapping 
my experience and creative juices in order to justify a paycheck 
that I am once again depositing on Fridays.  This requirement 
severely reduces the countless free hours to which I had become 
quite accustomed. I log on much less frequently these days, and 
often feel as if the blogosphere is passing me by.  I know this 
happens to most folks at some point in their blogging lives, 
and I'd rather get this out of the way now and look forward to a 
more prolific presence in the near future.  
Presently, I survive vicariously through my friends' posts.
Luckily, they all continue to provide fresh, original content for me
to pore over at the end of the night, while eating my re-heated 
slices of Buffalo-Chicken pizza and garlic knots.  
This could certainly be the death of me.  I must be strong.
