I haven’t had much to post this week, but this weekend I have a lot going on, so you may see some new posts on Monday. Ginny (another MEF of mine) is coming to visit from the-land-of-my-former-life this weekend. Actually, she’ll be on her way here in just a few short hours. The game plan this weekend is two-fold.
1. BEADS. Lots and lots of beads. Last time she was out for a visit, Gin ordered some beads from a nearby bead store that had a process they use to make beads out of dried flower petals (eg. From funerals, weddings, etc.) and I have since accumulated the supplies to put together something like 5 bracelets, 4 bookmarks, a necklace, and a number of other things, including silver bails that need to be put on about 15 stone pendants she has picked up recently. We’re going to be busy beaders this weekend. The picture above is just SOME of what we will be working with!
2. FOOD!!! Naturally, that is always a must when we have a visit, foodies that we are. However, this time it is going to be something special. As a treat for both of us, we are attending a steak and wine pairing demo in St Louis. This is courtesy of my sister, who is sending me to the event as a birthday gift that I haven’t had a chance to redeem for about three years. (Thanks, sister!)
Check out the description of this class…..
STEER ME TO THE BEST STEAK ENCORE It is always an honor to have the incredible talents of chef Lou Rook and wine aficionado Glenn Bardgett of the acclaimed Annie Gunn's grace our kitchen. The amazing duo steers this class in the right direction on premium beef and interesting wine pairings. Enjoy exquisite beef including Japanese A5 Kobe, Akaushi pure breed American Kobe, USDA prime aged strip loin, and USDA prime dry aged strip loin, all with delicious side dishes.
Now, doesn’t THAT sounds fabulous???? I will be sure to (try and) take pictures so you can all see what we get to eat!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
