Mel’s Diner

Sharp Knives, Raw Meat and Fire


Love.  That is what the last theme of the last Weekend Cookbook Challenge is.  As I have admitted lately, I haven’t shown a lot of love.  Since last fall, my postings have been sporadic and embarrassing, a lot like my love life.  Wait, I hope I didn’t write that out loud!  The lovely and gracious Sara has hosted this piece of love for longer than I have been posting!  And, finally, she is letting it go.  Not in the, “If you love something let it go and if it doesn’t come back, hunt it down and kill it!” sense, but in the, “it’s time has come” sense, which is much more acceptable in high society. 

This is the last day and in true Mike sense, I should be slipping in my last-minute post.  But, I’m not.  Look, this isn’t about me – this is about Sara.  She has been there for all of us, a lot more than we have been there for her (except for Ruth, who is a super-hero and doesn’t count).  In my heyday, the WCC was a milestone, it was a happy goal to meet every month.  She even let me host it TWICE and especially after the embarrassingly memorable The WCC Never To Be Mentioned (with FIVE entries, including TWO from me!).  If I had more faith in myself, I would pick up this mantle and let the Weekend Cookbook Challenege live on, like the Oldest, Reliable, Permanent, Floating, Crap Game in New York! (whoops, let my Guys And Dolls personality take over there).

Anywhoo, Sara – thanks for everything!  I love ya’, kid!
