I've been so busy, running here and there and everywhere...and involved with a bunch of stuff, so the Manic Monday Menu Blog Feature I've been doing has been on a little vacation. I may post something soon. So Check Back Later Today.
BUT, Right now I am giving you a chance to help choose my next NEW blog feature/features.
CONTACT ME with YOUR SUGGESTIONS on what my NEW Blog Feature/Features should be, since you read my blog...what do you want it to be about or involve?
(examples: food reviews, product reviews, restaurant reviews, etc or anything else you think would be worthy)
This week we had some majorly FUN guests in the studio. The first, Chef Michael Langdon from Plains. You may know him from Hell's Kitchen. He's on the show this season, still hasn't been kicked off, which I find very impressive especially since I think Gordon Ramsey is kind of like an angry kitchen Darth Vader. Dude scares the crap outta me.
Anyway, Michael had us blind taste-testing some of his dishes. I got none right. But he let me eat them anyway, which I thought was super nice of him. Note to Lissa: tuna and duck are not the same thing....
Chef Michael - cool, funny, tall.
THEN we had former intern Danielle (now one of my best friends in the world) on the air with us - LOVE HER! :)))
Everybody smiles when Danielle's around!
And finally... on the Friday Morning Happy Hour... our friends from The WOODLANDS stopped by! Here's Simone, the hot bartender, sharing a drinkie with me :) Go see them this weekend! Their deck is now open and it's beauuuuuuuutiful! Almost as beautiful as Simone... she'll make you one of these bucket beverages = lethal!
Yesterday the Fiance and I ran errands and had a lazy day. It was pretty awesome. While we were wandering through Target he said, "we're totally out of toothpaste." We grabbed out usual Crest 3D White and carried on. When we got back home, I brought the new toothpaste to the bathroom where I found the old tube in the trash. I don't know if you can tell from the top photo or not, but it doesn't really LOOK empty . . . and it wasn't!
I decided to cut open the toothpaste tube to see just how wasteful we really are. Thus, the bottom photo.
I was able to squeeze THAT MUCH toothpaste out of the bottom of the tube after cutting it open! EYE OPENING to say the least. This is totally going to make me think twice the next time I think we're ALL OUT! That's a lot of product!
Just wanted to say THANKS everybody who made it out to my songwriter's showcase at the Woodlands the other night! What a fantastic crowd!!! My friend Sara (such a sweetheart) got a few minutes of footage from my set - thought I'd share....
I've been glued to the news, UStream feeds, and Twitter all morning since I woke up ... crazily seeking more information throughout the man hunt for Suspect 2 in the Boston Bombings. A few of you have asked where the National Anthem audio we played yesterday on the show came from. During all of this chaos, it seems most appropriate to continue to sharing this beautiful display of pride from the Bruins game the other night.
Here's the deal on the bike ride were were talking about this morning with the guys from Cedar Bike & Paddle of Scranton.
This will be my first time in this ride. And I hear it's one of the best in the area.
Choose a ride that fits your ability.
I'll see you out on the road!
TOUR DE SCRANTON / Sunday April 28
The Ride benefits The Erin Jessica Moreken Drug & Alcohol Treatment Fund.
Erin’s Fund was established in 2002 for the purpose of helping young people find and obtain treatment for their drug and alcohol addictions. Erin Jessica Moreken was a resident of our area, graduate of Scranton High School, and student at Temple University, when she met a premature death at the age of twenty eight due to a drug overdose. The Tour de Scranton is being held in her memory.
