Holiday Themed Zenni Optical Frames are Coming to Town!

 Willy is cooking up some hot stuff over the holidays.  Yes, Willy is cooking a lot and Willy is needing to see what he is cooking.  That is why Willy needs to check out some cheap eyeglasses from Zenni Optical.   With these great glasses that are of great quality but priced right, Willy can see as to not burn his fingers or his food.  These great prices on these glasses will also allow Willy to buy some more great food to impress Willy's guest at his New Year's Eve party. 

What Willy wants to be sure of is that everyone sees these great holiday framed glasses.  They make Willy look cool while he cooks cool, colossal food.  Willy can then stand around and tell his friends that they all need to go to Zenni Optical and get them some cool glasses so that they can see what Willy has cooked for them with all of that money Willy has saved. 

So come on all of you Cooking With Willy fans.  Get over to Zenni and get you some of these great Holiday frames.  You can let me know in my comments which of these great glasses you will be wearing when you come to the party.

    Kansas State is cooking

    Willy is cooking up some ideas to go to the Cotton Bowl.  It appears that the Hogs from Arkansas will be playing Kansas state.

    This will be a fast offense against one that will plod along and fool you.

    Take a look at the teams.  Who do you think will win?

    Go Hogs.  January 8th.
