I should probably start off by writing about my adventures in San Diego last weekend. Great friends, food and weather made for a wonderful time. But right now, my head is still woozy from drinking half a tequila at dinner, so it’s probably best that I wait until I can get all my facts straight.
While it's still fresh in my mind, I had a terrific first night in LA. It’s not often that I get to meet other food bloggers, espcially one whose writing, blogging frequency, and good taste I revere. So as you can probably imagine, I was ecstatic to have dinner with Sarah from The Delicious Life last night.
Aside from finally getting to see what she looked like above the jawline, I took the opportunity to ask all the questions that had been accumulating in my head for the past two years. Questions like, who are you? and how do you manage post so frequently when it takes me weeks to write a single entry that’s not nearly as witty? Before tonight, I’d only met three other food bloggers (Rob and Rachel and June) and I always get a kick from feeling like I already know them even though it’s our first in-person encounter. So as you might expect, Sarah is as funny and interesting as she is on her blog, with camera in tow to take pictures of every dish we ordered.
Speaking of which, we had dinner at Tlapazola, a Mexican restaurant specializing in Oaxacan cuisine. My experience with Mexican food doesn’t extend much beyond burritos and quesadillas, so eating cactus and shrimp with blini-like pancakes was all new to me, but delicious nonetheless. Many thanks to Sarah for a wonderful evening!
