wow, that was fast, princess!

restaurant: ok, my restaurant would be called tommy o's, and i would serve nothing but dishes made with cheerios.

i'm kidding. it would be tommy o's, since only my family and closest friends call me tommy, and my last name starts with o.
it would be a lot like a little local restaurant by me, the ivy inn. http://www.ivyinn.com/photos.html

it's a long, stucco/swiss style house with a slate roof on several gables, sections covered in ivy that only seats about 40, including a few seats at a beautiful copper clad bar in front of an open, french style kitchen.
i would serve what i like. mostly italian american, but with steaks, roasts, seafood, and a grill.

eggs: i like my eggs sunny side up, lacey brown edges, warm runny yolk.
2nd choice would be devilled.

hero: i have a few: my dad, for one. theodore roosevelt, joseph campbell, the corps of discovery, ghandi, thomas paine, chico resch, and saint patrick. lots of reasons for each.

Bucky the Ivy Inn reminds me of the Red Coach Inn in Niagara Falls. If you get up that way check it out.

Have you started your son on the road to becoming a foodie or do you think it will be one of those things that skips a generation?

oh, definitely not.

quite the contrary. as we've continuously taken him out to dinner since before he was a year old (with great effprt on control), and with all of the food shows he watches with us, we actually have to tell him it's too late to cook at 8:30 or 9pm when we watch shows like masterchef together. he wants to imitate the shows much like he would imitate an animayed sponge, or martial arts trained teenager.

he will only watch a small portion of bourdain or zimmern, but he loves to watch actual cooking shows.

thatsa my boy!!!!!

tonight, while watching "hell's kitchen" and "masterchef" we made an appy together, pretending to be on the show. i limited him to stuff that didn't need cooking, and that he could reach, lol.

pretzel rods, sesame breadsticks, and vanilla biscotti pieces wrapped in prosciutto, sprinkled wih freshly ground black pepper, topped with torn basil leaves from the aerogarden, drizzled with evoo.

it actually was good!

the sweet vanilla biscotti with peppered proscuitto, torn fresh basil, and olive oil was amazing.

Tom mate if you found a pay packet with $800 cash in it would you.
A, hand it in to the police
B, keep it and go straight to a bar, then drown your sorrows because of the child support and tax deductions from the gross amount.

Who, in your past, do you consider to be the most influential person in your life, and why?

i would try to find the owner, as in ask around local shops and houses, and leave my name number to call stating that i had found a packet of money. if no one claimed it accurately within a month, i'd consider it mine.

my brother did that once, finding an envelope with $500 years ago outside a supermarket. he informed the manager of such and went home. it turned out to be an old lady's entire pension and social security payment that she needed to live on for a month. she'd just come from the bank, and dropped it when leaving the market. he was happy to give it back to her with just a hug as reward, and a great example for the rest of us.

there's no possible way i can choose just one, but just for an answer, one of many, i'll go with a seafood theme since that's what i'm craving:

a tray of oysters (belon, malpeque, blue points, and hama hamas) for an appy.

it's a toss up between lobster bisque and new england clam chowder for soup.

scungilli, calamari, e gamberi salad over insalata mista in a persillade type viniagrette.

main course would be a new england lobster bake, with ipswitch and littleneck clams, sweet corn on the cob, baby red potatoes, and a coupla 1 1/2 pound maine lobsters.

dessert is tiramisu with a double espresso, shot of black sambuca.

a real cuban montecristo portofino and snifter of gran marnier - cent cinquantenaire to round things out.

it's a tie between my dad and my mom, with my brother as a close third.

dad taught me to love nature, philosophy, and history; to stand up for myself and what's right, and never feel pity for myself.

mom taught me to love and to have a soft heart, and to have a sense of humour about life. and she made me a foodie.

my brother gave me a love for sports, especially hockey, and he taught me how to sharpen my sense of humour (aka how to be a smart ass ).

Thank you for your reply mate, In the spirit of the Media Select Committee's questioning of Rupert the Bare.
Your highness I am not allowed to eat baked beans in the winter due to flatulence, so my question is what foods if any do you forgo due to seasonal variation of the weather and the unfortunate effect they may have on you?

lol, i deny myself nothing, come winter or summer.

i have a 7 year old boy with whom i enjoy teaching the finer arts, one of whick is the music of the derriere.

he's asked me, in youthful innocence, why mom and other ladies never seem to fart.

i told him it's a good thing they don't or birds would drop from the sky anywhere near us. if you hear several thumps on the roof, get out of the room as soon as you can.

do you know why women fart so infrequently?

Order order! to quote Judge Judy (who I bet cracks out the odd belter) we ask the questions schmuck and you provide the answers.
Bucky Tom given the obvious pleasure and relief of a glorious botty cough why do you think most women claim ignorance of this fact ?

forgive me gov'nuh.

it seems the answer to both our queries lies in scientific fact.

women of the female persuasion seem to constantly be talking, never sealing off the intake which prevents them from building up sufficient pressure to attain a proper pitard.

I have to says Tom your answer was a prime example of superior male logic. I therefore find you guilty of all charges and sentence you to a two week Rosie O' Donnel cruise, you will be sharing a twin bunked inside cabin with Rosie she gets the top bunk. Kalo Taxidi mon brave

I showed my son how to play pull my finger. My daughter got mad at me a few days later because I did not show her too. Now they both love that game.
