Did you like my swap? You may have noticed I’ve gone longer than usual without posting. I did this for a few reasons but my main one is that I really appreciated Abby for letting my swap with her and I wanted to give her post some time to “marinate” on my blog. Anyhow, both her and I didn’t want to offend anybody and know that I DO appreciate all comments, even the “yum” and “I agree!”.
Today was fun as it was my first big blogger meetup! Lynn from The Actors Diet got a bunch of us Southern California Bloggers to meet at a cute cafe in West Hollywood (in L.A.). The attendees included two readers (which I very much appreciated! As much as bloggers are cool, its so refreshing to see interest from just readers!), Ameena from Fancy That…Fancy This, Andy and Amanda from Two Boos that Eat , Becki from Hike, Bike, Eat, Megan from Healthy Hoggin, and Katy from Katy’s Eats. Its kind of strange to meet with bloggers. We had SO much to talk about, not a moment of silence, and yet most of us have never met each other in our lives. It was fun exchanging blogging woes and perks. Most of my “real life” friends actually dont know about my blog, and I doubt they are that interested. It seems like some of the people that care about me the most are my readers; people I have never physically met before! Everyone was so sweet. I honestly felt I was kind of annoying because it seemed like I wouldn’t stop talking. I guess being a chef among foodies, you get to talk a lot. I must thank Lynn for organizing this. She’s such a positive, inspirational, funny, and kind person and I’m so thankful she got us all together. I hope we can do it sometime soon! Lynn posted some picture here,
And if any of you readers ever come to L.A., shoot me an email and maybe we’ll arrange a meetup, that is if I like you. Kidding! sorta 😉
Anyhow I wanted to tell you about my mini meltdown in my car the other day. I was at a red light and looking in the mirror to check my teeth (cause I felt some strawberry residue in there) and I found what I think was my first……grey hair!!!!!!
And no, it wasn’t just “very blonde” it was grey, from root to tip!
I dont understand it! I’m young, at least I think I am! I was only legally allowed to drink two years ago!
I dont have an exciting recipe, this is mainly what I had for a light dinner. I made my “Brocamole” and slathered it on a toasted tortilla and topped with with a veggie hot dog, cole slaw mix and some nooch. Speaking of tortillas…..just giving you a heads up that there will be a giveaway soon from La Tortilla. They have every kind of tortilla under the sun from gluten free, to low carb, to traditional corn and flour ones. I’m going to formulate unique ways to use them so stay tuned for that in the next coming day or days (depends how lazy I get).
