A field trip to Bristol farms - you have no idea how excited I am! LOL


Dear Palma-

I have so enjoyed reading your GTG Blog...it just kills me that we will not be able to attend...I look forward to Savannah so we can discuss your 2008 GTG..have a fabulous time next weekend!

See you in April-

Okay, Jerry, don't hit me, but what's Bristol Farms?? Will I want to go, too?? Are there animals to pet??

Palma, I am so excited I think I could get there without the plane.

I'm ready to work, so make my list!!!!



Thank you thank you thank you for the unbelievable eggplant
recipe! I made it for my Italian family and they could not believe that I made it(they can't master this dish) Everyone loved it, even those who don't like it usually. So good...

Sounds so good! Too bad I didn't live closer. I'll be at home in Kentucky on Friday!

Sounds like an incredible time Palma. I wish I lived closer. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Gail - I really am a food geek. Bristol Farms is the most amazing grocery store. Think a high end Whole Foods! LOL

Jerry, it's okay with me to be any kind of a geek!

I've already learned so much from you and Palma about food, recipes, and cooking. Your joy is contagious.
