Fashion is not my forté.I am a t-shirt and shorts kind of guy that focuses on comfort rather
than fashion.Recently I was contacted
by the fine folks at fodada , introducing
their “colors for cause”
line.Fodada’s CFC line is the same as
the basic line with, you guessed it, more color. The fodada clothing line was developed with Dad’s comfort in
mind.The idea was to have clothes that
Dad can wear while playing with the little ones and still be comfortable.And comfortable they are.I have the Dada hoodie and I would go out on
a limb and say it is probably the most comfortable sweatshirt I’ve ever
worn.It isn’t a heavy sweatshirt
though. The fabric is light with a snug fit and made to just take the chill
off. Fodada has partnered with two great organizations that care

Happy National Empanada Day!
This morning, in honor of the holiday, National Empanada Day, I decided to make some empanadas. In deciding what kind to make I considered all the different kinds I could make. There are sweet, desserty empanadas like fruit filled empanadas. That would be good for breakfast, but lack of planning on my part left me with no fresh fruit for that option.
Then there are the savory empanadas, like beef filled, chicken filled or even cheese filled. I decided on turkey filled because using ground turkey is similar to ground beef, and I like to save my red meat for steaks and roasts. I always substitute ground turkey for ground beef, mostly because it's just the healthier option.
