I'm being a snowbird for the week.
But I'm WORKING. Am heading to Miami Beach today to attend SOBE with Martha and my food colleague Sarah Carey. We'll be doing a demo on Saturday 2/23 to show some of the delicious recipes from the new Martha Stewart book, Meatless.
When I brought this book home to my meat-centric family I did not expect a ton of interest. My husband picked it up, started reading it--was enticed by the pictures and started naming all the things he was going to make. Now thats a testimonial! I can vouch for the recipes because most of them were created right under my nose at work in the kitchens of MSLO.
Our friend, Emeril Lagasse, has invited us to his Gardens to Glass party Friday night and knowing Martha,we'll get around to a lot of the happenings going on for this food festival (one of the best and most prestigious in the country).
But, in spite of all this fun stuff, I will miss my little 'ole home--cooking dinner with my family and loving the company of my boys. No matter what I am out doing for work, there is nothing that rivals the simplest pleasure of being at home around the dinner table with my family. I am not kidding! Anyone who has this opportunity to do so themselves, do not take it for granted.
Early Sunday morning I head to Philly and off to QVC for the launch of Mad Hungry Cravings and my first Mad Hungry "favorite tool" offering--the spurtles!!
SO I have to make sure to rested, hydrated and energetic while hanging out in the pleasure palace of South Beach Florida.
Lets see how that goes!
