A GREAT day! So good to meet many of you whom I have considered "net friends" over the last year!
Can't wait for the Colonel to return home to post the recipe for those eggceptional Mexican stuffed pork chops. Nature (aka Mature) Boy barely had a chance to mingle due to his occupation with all four of his entrees, but I must admit, the squid was good (yes, I tasted it!), but the ginger ribs were better! Special thanks to Grillin Bill for his Tri-Tips entry in absentia (I even got to cook them while NB was carving his brisket!). Mr. Toad improved further on his stuffed pork loin (hard to believe!). And, I finally got a taste of Cat's ribs...delicious. I think we'll be headed to the grocery store later tonight to pick up a bunch of bananas...they were superb! Mary, our favorite meteorologist, had some sour dough bread that was simply awesome.
Last, but certainly not least, I am pleased to announce that I am now a card-carrying, "Spin-certified Pizza Preparer!" Special thanks to Spin and Mrs. Spin for the pizza tutorial. I am awaiting the official diploma from the Spin School of Pizzary for suitable framing and display.
The music was great! Gretl and Company...!!! Can you believe her son never had violin lessons?!!!!!
Tim M, resident Egg Fest historian and archivist and all-around good guy, will have the entire day documented on his website in due time!
We had a wonderful time with all of you today! It was well worth the trip and the registration fee. We hope to make it to Eggtoberfest '00! Thanks for a memorable day. Post those recipes!!!
