I WORK FOR FOOD
Since I don't make any money writing this blog, it was a nice treat to have some local fame and some free food this week.
I walked into Millburn Deli yesterday for my usual sloppy Joe sandwich and when I went to the crowded counter to pay, they said "lunch is on us". Why? because I did the post on pastrami and sloppy Joes from the Millburn Deli and they saw it! How exciting! My 5 minutes of fame......
and to continue the fame, everyone at Restaurant MC saw the post on No Smoking and a Hibiscus Cocktail, so drinks were on the house! Ok, there might be something to this "working for food!"
To continue with the random food bites of the week:
I made my Fuzzy Salad this week with fresh white peaches, courtesy of my little friend Martha, who lives on a peach orchard in Germantown, in beautiful upstate New York. She brought me a big bag of them this week. She has peaches, 8 varieties of apples and pears right in her backyard.
We met a nice gal named Hallie Levy (no relation to Halle Berry), carrying a pink basket of cupcakes. I asked if she was Little Red Riding Hood, and "hey Red, what's in the basket?" She let me sample one of her buttery vanilla-ey (is that a word?), delicious cupcakes. She is a mom from Maplewood, NJ who is starting her own homemade cupcake business with her sister, called My Favorite Cupcake. She can thank me when she is famous. They were really good, thank you Hallie.
I made my famous egg salad for lunch (secret recipe) and served it on top of the Jersey tomatoes from my garden for my friend Rosemary.
