Whoring for Tickets


I know that I'm fortunate. Lucky, even. But there's something that I really want to win. Tickets to Nashville Scene's Iron Fork.

Claudia over at cook eat FRET has acquired tickets and is giving them away. If you're local, head on over and join in the begging fray. Not that we can't just go buy some, but there's that whole "Hey, I'm a WINNER!" thing that elevates one so. And it's not some lame number generator kind of thing. Claudia's actually CHOOSING the winner since she is all powerful and holds the tickets.

I found her blog during my recent foray into wanting to make Chocolate Mole sauce, of which my girl and I, are huge fans. I read The Recipe. Guajillo? Mexican cinnamon? Plumping raisins. Toasting seeds and nuts of all sorts. Cheese 'n Rice, this woman really knows her stuff!

I made reservations instead, but quickly became enamored of her culinary talent. I'd just like to sit in her kitchen and watch! I'll need a drool towel as everything on her site looks a little too perfect. I'm sure her home smells of warm cookies all the damn time.

If you're looking for a recipe, or just want to look at a hot blonde...head on over and say hi. A little name dropping of your favorite lesbian wouldn't hurt my chances, I'm sure!

P.S. If I don't win, I'll be buying tickets if I can find someone to pal up with since it's a benefit for St. Luke's Community House. Who wants to go play with food?

If memory serves me right there was more to the mole sauce than just dinner!

Dana said...

Just because I love you (and you DESERVE the tickets), I just left a good word for you at Claudia's place!

Jay said...

Hope you win the tickets! That will be a lot of fun.

Claudia said...

"Chocolate Mole sauce" - - oh. Yum. YUM!

mmmmm chocolate mole' is wonderful! my tia anita showed me how to make it once, but mine is nowhere near as good as hers. they make it in a jar now, so you dont have to go through all the day long prep work, yah know? but again, it's not quite the same as having a really talented mole' chef create a batch just for you! mmmmm.i can smell it now.

Real Live Lesbian said...

Fortune: There's a jar with this heaven in it? No way! I'm coming over if you EVER make it again...mkay?

Chelle won tickets the other day, but we can't go 'cuz it's one of my baby Anna's birthday.

I'll ask if she's promised them to anyone else.

Jen said...

Ohhhhh! I'm going to spend HOURS on that blog! Hours. You think I'm kidding? I love to cook, love to find people who cook and absolutely love new recipes as well as the old.

I always thought I was weird being so discerning about what kinds of olive oil, salt and pepper to use - it DOES too make a difference people! Someone after my own heart. . . .

Le sigh.

Real Live Lesbian said...

Hi Lynn!

I love her blog, too! She is such a fabulous foodie! Did you see the apple muffins she made? Heaven!!!

Thank you for commenting on the blog. You'll love the hot chicken salad and the mayonnaise. French was my first language so I naturally adore mayonnaise!

Blessings!
