Food, food and more food!

Spent yesterday as Sister of the Host at the First Bay Area’s Food Blogger’s Picnic, hosted by my brother at MeatHenge.com and several of his buddies. OMG. I am still full of yummy goodness. And sunburned to boot.
And look, my arms in a stranger’s blog (scroll down a few images) pouring some mighty fine Nouvelle Orleans absinthe. I thought: now here’s a crowd who can appreciate a fine artisan-made liquor. I did several food network style presentations, giving history, background, method, tasting notes and myth busting. Much approval and interest all around. Very receptive, and they DIDN’T ARGUE when I told them why it wasn’t proper to set the sugar cube on fire.
Also, did I mention the meat? OMG. My brother is a genious.
Sorry I haven’t been around this week, answering emails or replying or sharing my dollies. I’ve had a house guest all week… I’m so excited. She’s moving back to the area after having been in San Diego for 6 years and finished her Masters. In one week she landed a job as a teacher in a very challenging school district and got a large studio in our neighborhood. YAY! I’m so proud of her I could squeal (and I do, frequently). School starts one week from today so she’s running back home to pack up and move everything up here in the next few days. Yowie.
