Ms. Goofy made this lemon curd topped cheesecake in honor of the victory of Mathieu Van Der Poel victory of stage 2 of the Tour de France. What makes this so special is Van Der Poel's grandfather was a bicycle racer in the Tour in the 60s. His name was Raymond Poulidor. His nickname was "Pou-Pou". Pou-Pou was a popular racer but never wore the Yellow jersey. What a great win. What a tasty tribute.
MAD MEAT GENIUS

California is open for business; finally. Our state has been on lockdown for over a year and that includes the Italian Social Clubs. The orders have been lifted and the clubs are open once again; cautiously. I use the term cautiously because the clubs are still under the constantly changing rules and regulations by the bureaucrats. With that said, this Thursday night I attended my first sit down Spaghetti & Meatball dinner at the Colombo Club. It was so good. How wonderful it was to reconnect with old friends and break bread together. I raise the Mad Meat Genius virtual toast glass and proclaim; "Here's to good times to come".

Yesterday we had a fun day judging bbq at the Throwdowns in the Vineyards KCBS bbq competition held at the Ironstone Winery in Murphys Ca. It was a beautiful day with 29 teams compositing. What made this day very special my wife Ms. Goofy achieved a milestone in her judging career. She achieved the number of judging 100 sanctioned KCBS contest. This was a fun day with a little celibration honoring her achievement. Here she is pictured reciting the judges oath. She is the only women in California and possible the Western states to have achieved this honor. Congratulations.
