Lunchtime OutroInto the sun ... 11 out of 10.Sean Lennon/Joe Frankiln

Come on in and worn up beside the stove. We're cooking up a real special birthday cake this morning for:

Allen Toussaint (1/14/1938);
Joseph Henry "T-Bone" Burnett (1/14/1948);
John Campbell (1/20/1952).

First we head down to New Orleans whjere everybodies preparing for Mardi Gras, and celebrate Allen Toussaint. Then a full album side from T-Bone Burnett from 1972 "J. Henry Burnett The B-52 Band & The Fabulous Skylarks". Side A complete. Finally a tribute to John Campbell who would have been 59 next Thursday. I first bumped into John downtown in Manhattan around 1988. He was such an icredible talent who deserves to be remembered. Happy Birthday , fellas!

A recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Cake -- yes, you can cook it on the grill, too! Share this treat with your friends this Sunday for the Jet's game. This is a 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed fool proof recipe, just like my Mom makes.

Next week tune in for Chris Sorochin and his special spin on Lunchtime. I'll be back on the 28th with more grub! Stay warm, and drive slow!
