Cooking up a Truck at Park Auto Mall

Willy does not live in Tampa but if he did because Tampa used cars are something that Willy might really be looking into.  Why would Willy be looking into that?  Well, because Willy could easily  be looking for used trucks or used cars or possibly Willy is just looking for a place where he can get credit to buy a good Ford F150 in Tampa Florida.  

Yes, as you can tell Willy is a nut for good used cars.  That is why it is important to check out these used cars in Tampa and a reason to look at Park Auto Mall.  Great cars and trucks with great prices and great credit terms seems to be something that is important to this group.

So, if you are in the Tampa area and you need a good used car it is the belief of this redneck that you should check this place out.  You may smile as you drive away being glad that you stopped by.

Those are my thought for now.   10-4Willy

Queer Eye for the Straight Girl

Willy is cooking up some television today with a guest host.  Enjoy --- 10-4 Willy

The article written by Geraldo Russo

I love watching the show, "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl," on my DISH.TV. This funny show is a spin-off of the show, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." The show features five gay men who seek to help the less fortunate in the area of style. These five gay men help teach other people how to achieve a great personal style.

People literally go under a fashion makeover when they appear on this show. They truly undergo a major transformation in the way they look on this show, after the five hosts have worked with them. I always enjoy seeing how people change on this show. It is so much fun to see a person go from having horrible style, to achie! ving a truly amazing sort of style on this show. It is a phenomenal sort of transformation that always takes place.

Overall, I recommend this show to any woman that wants to achieve a sort of better style. It is likely that one can learn from the fashion mistakes of the contestants on this show. One will truly learn how to get better style by listening to the recommendations made by the five hosts of this show. After watching this show, one will truly love the five hosts on this show. They are so nice, as well as funny and quite charming.

Cooking Up Some Blue sky scrubs

Willy’s daughter is a nurse.  Nurses look snappy when they dress in great scrubs.  Yes, scrubs are great nursing uniforms.  As Willy stated they look nice, they give a certain professional look and they give a consistency to a clinic.  Willy’s daughter likes certain scrubs over others.  One of the scrubs that she likes is what she likes to call cheap dickies scrubs.  These, according to her are great scrubs by a brand name company and they are inexpensive.  What more could she want than that.

Another thing that is important to Willy’s daughter and to many people is the color of the scrubs.  What is her favorite color?  Well, that color would be burnt orange scrubs.  Yes, the color is bright and cheery and brings a bright and cheery attitude to the daughter and those that she tends to on a daily basis.  Sounds good doesn’t it?

So, if you are in a field that needs a nice looking uniform, then Willy would suggest that you check out  A great place to find those scrubs that you need is important and this is a place that might just fit that bill.

Corned-Beef-and-Cabbage Pizza

Willy is a fan of Corned Beef and Cabbage but Willy is not sure he wants them messing with Willy's Pizza.    10-4 Willy


For the dough:

  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the bowl
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, or 2 3/4 cups plus 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt

For the toppings:

  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the pan
  • 3 cups sliced green cabbage
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pickling spices, tied securely in cheesecloth
  • 1 large potato, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 6 ounces sliced corned beef


Make the dough: Whisk 1 cup warm water (105 degrees) with the sugar in a bowl; scatter the yeast over the top and set aside until foamy, about 10 minutes. Stir in the olive oil.

Whisk the flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast mixture. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients to make a rough, shaggy dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. (Add more flour to prevent sticking, if necessary.) Form the dough into a ball; place in a large oiled bowl, turning to coat with oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature until the dough has doubled in size, about 90 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the toppings: Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cabbage, season with salt and cook until just soft, about 5 minutes. Add the pickling spices and just enough water to cover. Simmer over low heat, covered, until the cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes. Drain the cabbage and set aside (discard spices).

Place a pizza stone in the oven, if you have one, and preheat to 500 degrees. Toss the potato with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in a single layer on a baking sheet until golden, about 15 minutes.

Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces. Roll one into a 14-inch round (keep the remaining dough covered). Place the round on a floured pizza peel (if baking on a stone) or a large oiled pizza pan; drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Scatter half of each of the cheeses, corned beef, cabbage and potatoes on top. Season with salt and pepper. Carefully slip the pizza onto the hot stone, if using, or place the pan in the oven. Cook until golden and crispy, 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat with the remaining dough and toppings

Humor is Cooking today.

Some simple quotes – have deep thoughts.  Maybe we should lighten up and take life a little easier and find the humor in most everything.  That is what is cooking today.

I may be schizophrenic,
But at least I have each other.

In just two days from now,
Tomorrow will be yesterday.

My short-term memory is not as sharp as it used to be. 
Also, my short-term memory's not as sharp as it used to be.
