So there’s no new Top Chef tonight. But don’t worry, here are some options for passing the time: Enter the Forking Fantastic Giveaway. Catch up with last week. Run down the street nude, tossing candy to passersby. (I really just wanted to see if you’d do that last one.) Or keep reading, and see what happens next.
That due to real-life jobs (I know! I have one!) Tight Ass Tuesday was not an option last night. However, we are still on for Top Chef, so I’ll see y’all later.
I don’t normally do anything breakfasty in the morning, but while staying with friends the last couple days and having to get up at the ass-crack of dawn I’ve been starting my day with tea.
This is the early morning view from the living room of my gracious hosts during the BlogHer Food conference in San Francisco:
And this is what I have in the guest bedroom:
So there’s this BlogHer Food thing this weekend in San Francisco you may have heard about. And I’m going, flying out after a half-day’s work tomorrow. Here is a partial list of things I have not yet done: (1) laundry, for the clean clothes I will need to ; (2) pack; (3) shower and wash my hair; (4) figure out how to get from the airport at 7pm to dinner in the city at 8pm; (5) check the weather; (6) check in for my flight; (7) everything else in the entire universe.
You know, you can do some amazing things with a hand-held vegetable peeler if you put your mind to it. You can also mangle a lot of zucchini, so it’s a damn good thing that they’re cheap as shit at the farmers’ markets right about now.
I’m ba-aack! Didja miss me? Didja? Didja? Huh?
I’m taking one from TNS through the rest of mine, so nothing new until Monday. I know you can make it. You’re stronger than you think.
In the meantime, why not go nominate me and your other faves for a FoodBuzz award?
Last week a panoply of French chefs were forced to eat food prepared by Top Chef contestants. They did a pretty good job…except Hector, who I thankfully no longer have to try and decipher, although I’m sure he’s a very nice person if you can understand him.
See you at ten!
