You and I have been friends for long enough that I feel I have to be honest with you.
I can't stop thinking about your husband Michael's stick.
I know I'll only be able to get a taste during festival season by visiting him at The Original Angelo's near the Harley Davidson Stage at Summerfest. My craving is getting stronger with the eve of opening night upon us.
Only a mind as brilliant as Michael's could conceive an idea so luscious, so indulgent that it's all I can think about.
Thick, warm and filled with gooey goodness, begging to be dipped in Michael's special sauciness, my mouth is watering as I write this. The very idea of wrapping my lips around his delectable filling has me counting down the days to bursting through those festival gates, right to The Original Angelo's for some naughtiness.
I am at a point of no return.
I can hear the burst of the crispy outside give way to a slightly unctuous moistness and then feel the sting of the salty filling pierce my anxious tongue.
You know I am usually a disciplined woman. I carefully choose what enters my mouth. But, when your husband is involved, I am at his mercy.
It's like I can't stop. I won't share what he gives me. I have to workout harder because I can't refuse seconds, but I do it because I cannot get enough. I know the opportunity to taste his tangy explosion of Italian spice is fleeting and I won't be able to get any when summer ends.
I hope you'll forgive my obsession.
I know you'll enjoy his stick with me all 11 nights of Summerfest. We can sit together in the sweltering heat, dipping his crunchy, gooey deliciousness to our heart's desire. I especially love to enjoy his stick with you guys together as a couple.
I feel so much better getting this off my chest and onto the veritable table, so we can enjoy his sticks together.
Note to readers: Michael Albano is the proprietor of The Original Angelo's Pizza. His amazing food is available at his kiosk on the Summerfest grounds near the Harley Davidson Stage all summer long.
He is the inventor of the "Lasagna Stick," a seriously yummo treat filled with homemade lasagna filling, hand wrapped in a wonton skin, deep fried and served with Michael's incredible, homemade tomato sauce. The Original Angelo's is also known and loved for their killer pizza and succulent Sicilian Steak sandwich.
Michael has famously said, "My food is like love in your mouth."
Hence – this blog.
His wife Stephanie is an incredibly gorgeous, kind, intelligent woman and dear friend, who obviously has an amazing sense of humor. She not only tolerates my deranged antics, but also feeds me on a regular basis even though I eat her and Michael out of house and home.
Whew!!! Is it just me or is it getting hotter in here??
Just a concerning thought. We Milwaukeans all anxiously anticipate the arrival of summer and "The Big Gig". Every year on the last Wednesday of June Summerfest graces us with it's arrival and we all flock to the celebration with the taste of good food and thirst for great beer. Some individuals bring their children which is great but please, please take care of the young ones. Remember that most of us have been waiting for this event since last year and can't wait to wet our whistles with a cold frosty brew. There is nothing more nostalgic than that first brewski from Summerfest. So people with children listen up if you want to bring your kids with you please take them home at an appropriate hour don't make the rest of us baby sit your kids while your off getting another beer. Keep in mind that the state fair begins in 5 weeks. Thankyou, and no offense ment to anyone, just asking for some consideration for those of us that don't have children.
That article was stimulating and witty. I'll be sure to visit Michaels kiosk and try lasagna on a stick it sounds delicious. My wife and I will be at Summerfest tomorrow to once again partake in the celebration of food and drink. Not to mention the awesome spectacles of raw talent. Gotta love Milwaukee in the summer!

I can no longer deny that autumn is really here. The equinox has passed and although oddly warm temperatures may be trying to fool summer-loving souls, the scenery of changing leaves and the certainty of chilly nights are shoving the reality of this season in my face. So, in the spirit of having a "polished finger on beauty, fashion, fitness and nutrition trends," here are my five favorites for fall.

I've always wanted to be one of those people who don't take everything so seriously; who isn't so affected by what other people do and say; who doesn't feel quite so deeply about everything. I consciously work on building a thicker skin, but alas - some personality traits die hard.

I'd never been to Wanderlust, the festival that celebrates the union of yoga, music and nature until this past weekend. I journeyed to Wanderlust California for the fifth anniversary of the festival held at beautiful Squaw Valley Ski Resort in Olympic Valley, Calif. (home of the 1960 Winter Olympics), near Lake Tahoe.
