THE FOOD CRITIC WAS BEHIND IN HIS RESTAURANT REVIEWS BECAUSE HE HAD: 

LETOMHOUIAPNCOSTH =  TOO MUCH ON HIS PLATE 

Mike: This one’s for you…πŸ₯˜ 🍷

Good morning, Mike, good morning, Everyone. What’s SUP?
Ah, Food! Who doesn’t LOAF Food? And so THYMEly…Mike and I were just talking food last night! As a dedicated Foodie, I’m EGGcited, from my head TOMATOES about this puzzle, so LETTUCE CELERYbrate, and dig right in! 

We’ve got some subLIME scrambles this morning; we’ve seen them in the PAST-Ah, with mayPEA a few new twists. I’d say Fathom and Asthma apPEAR to look the most appEELing. But, overall, easy, PEASy. ORANGEing our letters, was I the only one who saw Mouth, and figured, “Oh, the five letter word CANNOLI be Mouth”? HA…NACHO! I did FRY it, but staying with it would have KALEd me! It wasn’t MINT to be! ROLLing along, I concenTRAYted on the dialogue between the critic and the waiter. A-MAIZEing hints here, and then the question was even BUTTER. “Being behind”…summed it up. We’ve all BEAN there, BITEing off more then we can CHEW, and then telling ourselves, “WHEAT a minute, WHEAT a minute, I’m completely BOWLed over! I can’t KETCHUP! I DONUT what to do!” Not the best way to live OLIVES! We KNEAD to SLOE down, be more RAISINable, and ROMAINE in control of our THYME. We deserve the PEAS and quiet…

Eye CANDY today? No big DILL. The male diner looks like Tom Bosley. The female, should we even TACO ’bout it? (Let’s start calling her the B in P..blonde in purple)! She does seem to recognize the critic though. I got ‘NUTin here, perhaps one of you can shed some light. A PENNE for your thoughts. Last but not YEAST, the waiter. CURRIES me back. He looks like someone from my family tree, a few generations removed. Too OutDATEd. Does anyone still look like this? BEETS me. But I think I’ll choose him. Just for the HALIBUT. 

It’s Sunday, Funday! HONEY, DEW TURNIP the music, and get up and dance! 

LENTIL tomorrow….🍝 πŸ™‹πŸ»

  1. Good morning, Everyone. For those of you who use the colorized on-line version of Jumble, for your playing pleasure, today’s puzzle is incorrect. The cartoon is next week’s entry, and as you’ll see it displays only two words. The words belong to today’s puzzle. A “mess in the press”, as I like to say! Hope this isn’t your only reCOURSE! 🍝 πŸ™‹πŸ»

  2. Wow, you were really inspired today, Angela. This puzzle gave me little trouble. I solved all the words and figured his, the and plate were probably in the answer. Then I saw much and too. I was surprised asthma was one of the cws because I had assumed David avoided troublesome diseases.

I thought Asthma an odd choice too, but I wonder how they keep coming up with all these words, right? Speaking of, we’re having heat alerts here since early morning. High temps, and the humidity that comes with it. And it’s not even mid June. It makes me so nervous. Hope you have an ..🎢”Easy like Sunday morning…”🎢 day..β€οΈπŸ™‹πŸ»

    Since I did not have access to today’s puzzle, I can’t relay what gave me trouble–sometimes clue words which have prefixes give me grief, income might have tripped me up.

But from the first ad nauseum replay, you heard the whistle. If the game ended up in the win by just the one goal, the headlines would all be..”We wuz robbed”! I was going right to the text to shout out to you when it happened, but then I remembered. (What time is it on your side…)? LOL. And Lou went to sleep before the game even started..I had to go to calling up #3 to talk it out! Let’s face it, if we were Pred fans, we’d be preaching this morning, crying in our fried catfish, playing the RARE broken heart country ditty over and over and…LOL. You win some…My Mets? I’m thinking we don’t talk about it just yet. Just in case the baseball gods are reading this too! It’s still so early, and anyway, the Nats are on steroids, you know? Sox? Can’t blame Mike for going to bed early. School night, water park hangover…3 up on the board for Detroit as soon as they heard, “Play…Bal….”! Never even got that last L out! LOL..The Warriors tonight? Can’t come soon enough. Prayin’ it’s the last call. Kick the Cavs to the curb. Let’s hope God, gimme “only baseball”. Once more, CANT COME SOON ENOUGH!

      • Ok I think this is the one i told you I’d get back to you on. Crazy day. Started way too early too. Curry wanted to grow that beard for years. He admitted it just would never come in right. Spots all over, never full. ((Not like the guys I know..shave at 6 in the morning…by lunch time the beards there)! LOL..But, he tried it again thus past winter, and this time he stuck with it. God knows he does have the “🎢Cutest little baby face…”🎢 and he looks more mature now. But the press are just eating it up. So I’m figuring tonight, during a lull, they’ll discuss the beard. I think you mis read me on the goal. What I meant was despite how the Penguins scored in those last 95 seconds, if the Preds didn’t get robbed of that goal, rules not withstanding, an 1-0 loss would have stung more in my opinion. Maybe I’m wrong. I don’t think I’m more of a fan than you, I just remember differently than you do. I followed Pittsburgh for years, and 2009 just happens to be a memorable year. I knew about the Florida connection, because one night last year playing 6 degrees, it came up. You learn something every day. You’re way worthy, LOL..we just follow different teams. And I told you, I’m a voracious reader. Obsessive. About anything and everything. I have to be with the Luigis. Today I spent a little time during all the craziness in my Drs office. I had my second newspaper and couldn’t wait to get into the sports pages. But I was playing so much defense for the blog, I never cracked it open. I was home already and there was still “turmoil”. LOL. But now I’m so behind on the reading, it really bugs me. (And when I told the dr about the left thumb…LOL…) So, maybe we’re even. I don’t know much about West Coast hockey!

  7. Hi Steve! Yesterday I looked up Sound of Silence, thank you, and remembered it but never knew it had so many verses & was so β€œdeep.” Because it sounds so pleasant, I though it was just a sweet song about how pleasurable silence can be at times.
    After sleeping all day today until now, I decided to tell you an embarrassing moment with a familiar theme, which I don’t plan to bring up again. First two Thanksgivings after marriage, we went to Jerry’s parents’ home with his huge family including 4 Ohlund women who said that all I needed to bring were the rolls. They finally said that I could bring some gravy, which I made using my mother’s recipe. When I arrived with my large pot of gravy, Jerry’s sister was the first to inspect it and her words were, β€œWhat’s that?” I said it was Giblet Gravy. She asked, β€œWhat’s a giblet?” I replied, β€œGiblets are livers & gizzards. I boiled 3 pounds of gizzards for 5 hours yesterday until they were fall-apart tender, with salt, pepper, onions, garlic, poultry seasoning, & a touch of EVOO. Today I added 2 pounds of liver for about 20 minutes with enough corn starch for gravy consistency.” Well, everyone had heard all that and her 4 boys were the first to speak, all saying, β€œI’m not going to eat any of that.” At that moment, I would have joined with you in applauding W.C.’s evaluation of other people’s children. Then Jerry’s mom added that on the farm they had always thrown those to the dogs, and my darling new husband reminded her that sometimes she let him use them for fish bait. The 4 women made a different gravy using broth from the turkey. I had to take my gravy home, where I enjoyed it on mashed potatoes and biscuits. And that is my embarrassing moment story about my dog food, fish bait, liver & gizzards gravy.
    Thanks for mentioning me as one who encourages you to comment. I LOVE your comments to me. Hope you had a pleasant day!!!
