No Cooking Tonight
We'll be making Matzoh Ball Soup for Rosh Hashanah next week!
I worked late tonight, came home, turned on the tube and headed right to the DVR to watch the Debate. I got it up and running and then launched Twitter. It was abuzz with debate chatter. I wish I were a sociologist or a political scholar or a statistician or a woman with ESP, because I’d like to analyze the Tweets. It seems to me that the overwhelming majority of tweets were in favor or Obama.

Swedish Meatballs, Egg Noodles and Tomato Salad
I said I’d published the last post about the trip to Vegas, but I’ve got something über important to share with you! Check this out — The JTV Monkey went along on our trip! Krystyl put together a great post about our travels with the JTV Monkey. Does anyone remember what his name is?

City of Light?
A Blogworld vendor asks the question for which I have no answer
I am going to finish my “discussion” of Vegas and Blog World tonight. I ended up publishing last night and realizing I had forgotten a few photos which led to another post tonight. I am done though. I promise! I’ll be back to catching up a bit with Justin.tv and cooking another great meal live!
Vegas is billed as The City of Light. Perhaps not so much in the daytime. I had been to Vegas two times in the past and had stayed in hotels on the strip both times. This time using points I stayed at the Westin Hotel which is just off the strip. Next to the exit is an empty lot. It looks like it’s been empty for a while.

BlogWorld Expo ’08
The best meal I had in Vegas was at a surprising place -- the Flamingo Hotel Coffee Shop for brunch -- and I'm not talking about one of those über tourist buffets it was a menu-ordered brunch
I tend to do daydream — big — especially when I am seated in a plane and in airports for hours Unless I am hunkered down in a negative frame of mind, I daydream and imagine big things, things that make me smile. Things that inspire me and make me plug away.

It’s All Good
I'm not sure how much of a Welcome to Vegas this guy is, but he was waiting for me in the airport when I arrived this evening 🙂
I arrived at the airport this morning to see a couple of Tweets letting me know that the finalists for the Whole Foods Budget Recipe Challenge had been selected. I was very excited and thought I’d check my mailbox first because the contest registration documentation stated that finalists would be notified mid-September. Logic told me that if an announcement was posted that the finalists were selected that probably meant mail was probably waiting in their boxes.

We used the wonderful All Clad Copper Core wok today to make Thai Chicken with Basil and Rice with Pickled Cukes and Radishes and it was a great meal.
