Jersey Cheesesteak

Move over Pat, Geno, Tony, and Jim.  Jersey cheesesteaks rule

cheesesteak I'd stand in line for!

A List

Travel list from a couple of thanksgivings ago.
A couple of prep items, and then the packing list.

When we go to Riverside, cigars are not needed to bring;
they're placed on our pillows.

Oh Geeze, Fish taco.
