Slo Mo Slide Sho ...

Ok, so I had an idea last night ...After checking a website I like to go to for news last night, then checking it again a few minutes later only to see no new news lol, I thought this would be neat. Give ya something new if maybe you are at work and boredom sets in and all you can do is search sites you already went to. Ever do that? Check a website a few times a day and never see a change and wish you had something to fill you brain? I thought it would be neat to post up flicks from this week in the kitchen, only in intervals. It's my first ever "Slo Mo Slide Sho" ... Starting tomorrow at 9 a.m. and every other hour after that until 7 p.m., I'll throw up a flick and a little teeny bite about what was going on this week in the kitchen. Just for note, the times are 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., hope you like it!

Let's unofficially kick it off with a flick from last week. I visited Ed Lover and his team to give tips on holiday meal planning for first timers and tips for working it out on a budget. As usual we had fun. It was just two days after the election and celebrations were still in order. So, along with the Roasted Turkey Breast with Peach Rosemary Glaze and Holiday Apple Walnut Salad, I prepared a Barack-atini. The drink was so cute and I didn't even take a picture of it. I served it in a champagne glass and in the bottom there were frozen blueberries for the Democratic party and red sparkling wine poured over them to represent the Republican party and his want for a bi-partisan administration. Before pouring the wine over the berries I drizzled a teeny bit of honey, because it was produced in Hawaii, where part of his family is from. It was yummy and a nice way to toast the great feeling we all had due to the outcome of the election. Anyway, we had fun drinking the Barackatinis and actually it's a misnomer, I wanted to call them something more like a belini and throw in one more ingredient, but I couldn't get over how much Barack-elini sounded like Broccolini teeheehee ... ahhh anyway, here's the pic of the plates all lined up before I went into the studio to hang out and spread some smiles and info. Special thanks to Kersti Bowser and her team!
Hope you enjoy the Slo Mo Slide Sho tomorrow :-)

Great idea! I know I should RSS the blogs I go to so that I don't have to "search" but I like checking daily or when I have time...seeing who must be busy and who's cooking and posting every day.

mrs. l, thanks! i do the same thing and check in to plenty of spots over and over throughout the week. i don't post daily ... kinda more like, when things happen or if something comes up with the tv schedule for the shows. thanks so much for checking in when you do, i appreciate it.

aww man! I wanted to create a Barack Drink too, but I couldnt think of anything else after something with pineapple in it to represent Hawaii, so I just ended up making Long Islands at my party.. But somethin u may find funny since you were a radio DJ, is that I recently came across an actual Barack Obama Mixtape at my barber shop which cracks me up for some reason.
