No Brunch Today

Well, needless to say, our planned brunch at The Blue Parrot has been postponed.  Who expected a major snowstorm the weekend before Christmas???  We will regroup and reschedule sometime after the first of the year.
Have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for the New Year.

Amidst the Holidays; White Gazpacho

Merry, Merry, Merry!

We Divas have all been so busy with the holidays there's been little time to post.  But now that Thanksgiving is behind us and Christmas preparations are under control (somewhat!), its a good time for a quick update.  On December 20th, we will go to our last meal together in 2009; we are having brunch at The Blue Parrot, a New Orleans-style restaurant in Wilmington.  None of us has been there before, so we are looking forward to letting "le bon temps rouler" with some fine Creole food.  We'll let you know how it goes -- but probably not until after the holidays.
After our October dinner at Orilla's Tapas Bar and discussion of white gazpacho, Nanzie and Linda were both inspired to try recipes they had found for this unusual soup.  Having tasted both recipes, I have to say that the soup made by Nanzie was my favorite.  It was based on a recent recipe in "Martha Stewart Living" magazine.  Whatever you think of Martha Stewart's management style, there is no denying that the woman has talent -- and can cook.
Enjoy the joys of the season and have a wonderful holiday.  We look forward to more fun dining experiences in 2010!
