Last night was the big showdown on the Next Food Network Star...all three candidates had their strong points...I couldn't really pick a favorite between the three; I liked Adam for his on-screen presence, I loved Aaron's big, hearty food...and I liked Lisa's style...and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the show...if I had to guess from the pilots filmed, I would have said Lisa or Adam BUT the WINNER was....Aaron McCargo, Jr.!! His show debuts next week!
P.S. I made his famous stuffed porkchops with a dijon/chipolte/honey glaze (minus the sausage in the stuffing) and they were good!
We had terrible thunderstorms again yesterday...in the morning and in the evening...our cable is sporatic today (again -- out more than on!)...it makes for a "not so productive" day at work with my line dropping...but it seems better now.
I got to see my oldest and dearest friend Andrea from high school tonight...she's in town from Arkansas because her dad fell and broke his hip (Mr. T, I hope you have a speedy recovery!) I haven't seen her since my dad passed away three years ago...we had some dinner and got to catch up a bit...our lives are going in separate directions but the best part is that when you catch up with a good friend, its like you just picked up where you left off last! HUGS!!
