Well, the post-Jamie Oliver “Blog of the Month” celebrating is finally winding down now. The after-after-party just ended, the last celebrity-filled limo has pulled away, and the dozens of empty champagne bottles are being rounded up.
For those of you who were sadly on the B List, here’s a glimpse of what you missed:
OK, so I actually spent the day grocery shopping, folding laundry and running an incredibly exciting errand at Bed, Bath and Beyond, but I did have a smile on my face. :-)
Turning to the Friday Buffet, I was in a bit of a panic this morning, scrambling around for a Thanksgiving-appropriate item with which to send you off. But then, like mana from heaven, came this from TX political blogger Charles Kuffner: the Turbaconducken, or a bacon-wrapped turducken.
Keep in mind that Charles is also the source of the Denny’s-grilled-cheese-with-mozzarella-sticks-contained-therein AND the chocolate-and-vanilla-cake-with-apple-and-pumpkin-pies-contained therein. How he finds time to cover all things Texas politics and keep abreast of the wack-o foods-within-foods genre, I’m not sure, but I’ll gratefully take any tips he wants to send my way.
Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll be back on Monday as usual, but will stop blogging after Tuesday so I can focus on family, relaxation and, of course, food.
