Another fun weekend! BAM!!!
Keith won a trip for two (thats him and me) to go to the Food Network Wine and Food Festival this weekend in Miami Florida. We are leaving tomorrow (Thursday) and getting back Sunday Night.
One of the highlights for me is getting to eat dessert with Emeril. BAM!! We get to meet him and take a picture with him. It will be fun. That is on Friday Night. On Saturday we are going to a tasting village that showcases many of the chefs from Food Network. We will see Bobby Flay (a family favorite on Iron Chef), Guy Fieri, Tyler Florence, Paula Deen, Giada DeLaurentiis, Rachel Ray, Jaime Oliver, and ANTHONY BOURDAIN. He is one of my favorites and I hope I can meet him. He has a show on Travel Channel called ANTHONY BOURDAIN-NO RESERVATIONS.
Other chefs that I am bummed I will miss are Mario Battali (another Iron Chef favorite), Moromoti (again from Iron Chef) and anothe personal favorite of mine is Robert Irvine from Dinner Impossible. The two chefs I was dying to meet were Anthony Bourdain and Robert Irvine. Robert Irvine did not work out with our schedule and what we were able to get tickets to, so I am thankful that I get to meet at least one of the two. :-)
Sunday we are going to a cheese seminar. For those of you who do know my son Parker you know that he has loved cheese since he got his first teeth. We are going to this seminar to learn how to cook wonderful things with normal everyday cheeses. We get to taste everthing that is made.
I will be sure to blog about both my adventures when I get home. I will also be blogging on some decisions I have made about my triathlon career, but you will have to wait until I get home to find out about that.
