Between a lack of time and an even bigger lack of motivation, lately I’ve been a really terrible blogger. There. I said it. But, since acknowlegement is supposedly the first step to recovery, I figure this post, along with a photo montage of what I’ve been up to, might get me back on track.
To kick things off, I wanted to share a few pics of the strange and lovely things I got to try during my trip to Tru as part of a Community Table dinner sponsored by Foodbuzz and Visa Signature. During the dinner featured a bevvy of incredibly beautiful, though I’ll admit rather complicated tasting food, as well as an opportunity to network with some amazing bloggers.
My pictures certainly don’t do things justice, so for a much prettier account of things, I recommend you visit the blog of my tablemates, Alice and Jarad of Eat A Duck, I Must. Aren’t they talented?
And of course, last weekend was my first Las Vegas adventure…and what an adventure it was! We sampled incredible food at…well, just about everywhere! I was shocked at how incredibly good the food in this town was! We enjoyed the ridculously well-priced for way too much amazing food Tasting Menu at Craftsteak (highly recommend taking advantage of that deal). And then on Saturday, JiT and I decided to treat ourselves to lobster tails at a seafood place at the Mirage. We tought a two-pound tail spit between us sounded about right. Um…no. They didn’t even HAVE a big enough lobster in the joint and instead brought us two “smaller” ones…that took up our entire plates. Needless to say, a takehome bag was needed. I’m still full just thinking about it.
When we weren’t eating we roamed the Strip in the wretched heat (like sticking a blowdryer down your throat), laid by the pool, lost more money than I want to think about playing roulette (very fun game but what torture!), and took in an amazing show. See O if you haven’t! It was amazing! Below, you’ll see a few pics we snapped along the way. My parents being total tourists (and yes, my dad is pretending to grab my mom’s boob. He’s such a comedian), JT attacking his lobster, waiting for O to begin, and hanging at a very dark and loud lounge/club place one night. I’m too old for that kind of thing!
Thanks for hanging with me during yet another cooking dry-spell. Hope to be back behind the stove (with JiT behind the camera) soon!
