The Cleveland Hogg Burger
 Happy Father’s Day! As you know I am a Pittsburgher living in Cleveland. It can be fun sometimes, especially when I talk. I may have lived here for 9 years, but I still say “Yinz”, “Worsh”, and the occasional “Gum Band”. By now, my friends are used to my Pittsburghese, but sometimes when I meet someone new, they have not got a clue of what I am saying.

Pittsburgh is in my blood, it is where I am from, that is where my family lives. I do miss them, but for now, Cleveland is where I live. If I meet Mr. Right, yes I may move again to another state, I mean that was why I moved here to begin with, for love.

No matter where I live, I know my father will always be there for me. When I got divorced, he drove up here to help me move, of course, he got lost and somehow ended up by Brown’s stadium with my sister, who decided to wear a Steelers sweatshirt. According to my dad he told her to duck down because Browns fans can get too crazy, he didn’t need to be killed over her sweatshirt. None the less, they found their way to my apartment, loaded me up and helped me move out the place I shared with my ex-husband.

I love my father, I do have a nonbiological father in a way too. My very good friend Richard. Richard is like my surrogate father, no he could never replace my dad, but I do love him just like my own father. He is older than most my friends, they all know him too, in fact, he tells people he is our gay father. Richard more than a father figure, I tell people he is my GBF, which my gay best friend. I think every woman needs a GBF in her life.

Why? Well, they are the most honest. They are not afraid to tell you when you’re a fool, and when comes to advising you about guys, they give the best advice. Plus they help you look fabulous.

The Cleveland Hogg Burger | Seduction in the Kitchen

So in honor of Father’s Day, Sunday Supper is having MAN FOOD! Well, I asked my 2 favorite guys what recipe would they do for a manly burger. Between the two, I ended up with this combo. In a way it should be called The Pittsburgh-Cleveland Hogg Burger, because it is a fusion of the two cities, stacked up high like they do in Pittsburgh, and lots of pork like they like in Cleveland. The reason I settled on The Cleveland Hogg as it the name, in all honesty, I already have 2 Pittsburgh sandwich recipes on here already. I thought I just even the score slightly, just to give Cleveland a better chance.

    Lol, I have no idea what any of those Pittsburgh words mean! But then again, I’m Canadian and apparently we say strange things too, eh. This burger is the best of both worlds and it’d be welcome in my mouth any time! This post is a wonderful tribute both to your dad and to your GBF!

    You will not find a kinder person than Dee!! She gives with her heart to a fault, but that is something you are born/raised with if you are from Pittsburg. I met Dee at the Westlake FHC a part of the Cleveland Clinic. I remember she asked me if I liked salsa, which I said yes cause I like everything I’m a fat ass. She told me it was a little spicy, so I dived right in Jesus at least I thought I was going to see him. The stuff was some of the hottest food I have ever tasted it burned twice if you know what I mean. To see Dee grow from making salsa straight from hell to what she is making now is incredible. She has grown not only in her cooking, but also in her life. Slowly she is building her confidence and learning how to tell people to pick a middle finger and not worry about it. Dee you are a wonderful human being I am proud to be your Gay Father I love you very much. Richard
