Yesterday I went to the store to get what I needed to make a breakfast fatty. I stop into Rock Creek Sports bar which is next door to safeway as I usually do for a quick beer before I go shopping. I get the usual what are you up to today question as Paul serves me a glass of Stella. I told him I was going to smoke a fatty and enjoy the afternoon….4 people turn around and say…Right on dude and nodded their heads….it took a second but then it occurred to me that they thought I was talking about a doobey…..I should know by now that when folks in boulder county hear “Fatty” they think of Marijuana where as when I hear Fatty my palms start sweating and my mouth waters as I think about what to stuff it with.  We all laughed when I explained what I was actually doing. Here is my Breakfast Fatty – This served with a Fried egg and some Green Chili on a homemade biscuit is as about as good as it gets in my opinion for a breakfast sandwich.
